That evening, we went to:
Friday started with Mindy and Stephanie going to Barry's Boot Camp:

Instead, we headed to Macy's (the girls said I needed to go since they were having their annual flower show. We ended up having Starbucks and sharing some breakfast sandwiches.
I'll continue this post tomorrow. It's already too long!
