shopping spree day

well, last saturday was it - the day i'd been looking forward to for several weeks - shopping spree day. and believe it or not, it was chris's idea! the mission: find clothes that fit in stores we don't have around here, so i'll stop whining about things being too big. we headed south to raleigh, nc and shopped until we felt like we'd collapse. after shopping we wanted to go downtown since it's so pretty... and free. we used one of our film cameras, and i just got the pictures developed yesterday!

there seemed to be a whole lot of horses downtown on saturday, which i don't remember seeing other times i've been, but i love horses, so it was definitely a treat! we spent most of our time around the capitol building as the flowers a so colorful, the sidewalks are shaded, there are lots of birds, and the nearby architecture is so pretty. i think my favorite thing from our time downtown was walking up on these little sparrows in the 7th picture that would sort of hover by this one monument, and although you can't see it as well in the picture i've added since i had to resize it, the bird that had just flown off has it's wings sort of spread and curved so in the picture you can see each little feather! i think my heart exploded. i'll be sure to show you what all i bought later this week!
