Of course I had to buy one for Rachel for Easter (you all know the name of her stuffed rabbit, right?!?!) and then I bought Sam a #4 chocolate. We hit Bradshaws where I drooled over teapots, their Portmerion dishes and a few other things. And I took advantage of their chocolate trail offer of a shatterproof wineglass (just for you Dad!!!) filled with chocolates. And on our way to Small-Mart General Mercantile, we saw this row of chairs and just had to relax.
If you will look a little closer you can see...
...an entire window display of Fiestaware! It's my newest obsession and I think I will get myself some for my birthday. I hope! Then we stopped at the Scottish shop were I passed on the Chocolate Trail Shortbread with Chocolate Chunks but bought myself a gift for tomorrow -- St Patrick's Day, of course. Check back to see what my present was :)
Then it was off to the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory where we each got a chocolate pair of theatre masks. I decided that the kids could split mine :)
Next it was off to Family and Company which is a very neat toy store. Tessa tried on a rubber chicken head, I used the rubber chicken debit card machine, and I bought Dave a gift, which they wrapped with a pair of silly glasses as decoration.
If you ever have a chance to experience the Stratford Chocolate Trail I would highly recommend it. I enjoyed window shopping in the cute shops of Stratford as much as I enjoyed collecting all my chocolate treats. And we discovered that Stratford has a Bacon and Ale Trail so we are trying to figure out a double date where Dave and Tim can enjoy Bacon and Ale and Janice and I can continue to browse in all the shops! Sounds like a win-win situation to me. And now I'm off to eat more chocolate -- should I go for the Cream Centre Dark Chocolate or a Smooth Dark Brix Bite? Decisions, decisions...!
