When my sweet granddaughter Alethea was visiting me for two weeks during the summer, one of the many places we took her was the famous "Nelson Cheese Factory". I wrote all about the Cheese Factory in this post if you missed it. Going to the Cheese Factory is a summer family tradition for us. Most of the time, we just get ice cream, but I also love to go there for lunch with my girlfriends or to just enjoy some of their delicious coffee.
This was Alethea's first visit to the Cheese Factory and I said to my daughter, "We should bring her here every summer and take a picture under the "Nelson Cheese Factory" sign. It will be so fun to watch as she grows up in those pictures!"
So here is Alethea's very first picture at Nelson Cheese Factory. Just look at that smile! What a doll.
For our special first photo shoot at the Nelson Cheese Factory, we chose blue chambray dresses; mine is a solid blue, Alethea's dress is a blue and white stripe. We accented our dresses with black accents. I wore black booties, a black cardigan, and carried a black bag (everything old). Alethea wore pretty black shoes and she was suppose to wear a black hair bow but somehow we forgot to put it on her before we started to snap pictures. Ah, the realities of fashion blogging. 😊 She finally reached the age where she started pulling hair bows off her head, so if there is a hair bow we want her to wear for photos, we have to put it on her right before we start taking pictures and distract her so she doesn't notice it! Ha ha! Oh, all the tricks we have learned to photograph Alethea!
I did not forget my hair bow though! 😊 I wore a light grey plaid hair band from Forever 21.
After we enjoyed our delicious coffees at the Nelson Cheese Factory, we headed to Wabasha to take a walk along their river walk.
Oh, my little pumpkin. I miss her so much. Thanksgiving can't come fast enough for me. Only a few more weeks, and I will have her in my arms again!
So do you have any annual traditions with your grandkids? What are your plans for Thanksgiving? Will you be able to spend time with family? I'd love to hear from you!
Have A Great Day! Amy
