Here's daddy with his baby.

My mother, son, Frannie and myself took Frank (my husband) here to celebrate Father's Day - Stamford, CT. We ate dinner Al Fresco. Then we had a down pour, but it was okay, there was a roof overhead.

After dinner, it was decided that we needed cupcakes for dessert.

So we went here - A new Crumbs Bakeshop in Westport, CT.

Frannie and daddy picked out the cupcakes - they were big enough to share.

And if you give a man a cupcake, he's going to want a cup of coffee to go with it.

Rubber Ducky, you're the one!

Rubber Ducky, I'm so awfully fond of you!


Creamy filling - very Crisco-ish with some sugar mixed in.
Hey, if that's what you like.

This little guy's coming home with us.

Earlier in the day Frannie and I stopped at Knitting Central - Westport, CT. Frannie helped by winding up a ball of sock yarn. Hand-dyed and very soft.

Friday evening, Tom Jones was in town, but we didn't have tickets. So we took a ride near the outdoor concert just to have a listen. He sounded GREAT! After, Frannie could be seen at Crumbs Bakeshop (twice in one weekend!) - but her pick this time had been her very favorite - Red Velvet!

Hmmm... Not Bad!

I saw Tom Jones with my grandmother once. Luckily, she did not throw her panties at him.

Those cupcakes looked amazing! Your comment of the filling is noted. Some fillings can be very Crisco-ish... I try to avoid those.

Okay, you live on the ROCKING side of the state! A cupcake bakery?! I need to head out more that way. I would get lost. I know NOTHING beyond New Haven. LOL.

Oh. Forgot to mention that I posted the sugar cookie recipe on my blog for ya!

Frannie is so cute. That rubber ducky cupcake is adorable too -- what a fun idea!

Well I'll be looking for a cupcake place around here now. Loved the rubber ducky on Frannie's. Great choice.
I saw Tom Jones a couple years ago. He's still got it and sounded great. A gal did throw panties at him though. I guess they can't help themselves.
