Weekend recap (local fun)
I didn’t take a drive to Tennessee in an RV over the weekend, but my family and I did have some fun just staying in town.
The weather was absolutely incredible, so we took a family walk through our neighborhood on Saturday morning.
Later that day, I took Michael to a store called Fintastic (“an aquarium superstore”) to look at all of the fish. I wasn’t sure if he’d really be into it, but he was so intrigued and kept tapping on the tanks (which I am sure the fish didn’t appreciate too much).
If you’re a mommy and you have any sort of place like this near where you live, I highly suggest that you take your little one(s). Not only is it fun, it is free (unless you decide to buy a fish, of course).
MT, Michael, and I had dinner at Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar that evening and sat outside on the patio.
I had really been in the mood for a burger, so I ordered one on top of a salad and shared my veggies with Michael. I think he ate the majority of my avocado and cucumbers.
That’s kind of how it works these days when we go out to eat. I order something that I know I can share with Michael.
Remember when Skillets, our favorite breakfast joint, suddenly closed down?
Well, a new restaurant opened up in its placed called Another Broken Egg, and we tried it for the first time on Sunday morning. It was pretty good, and they have a gluten-friendly and vegetarian-friendly menu…but we’re still not over Skillets.
Oh, Skillets. Why did you have to leave us?
I ate out yet again for lunch when Michael and I met my friends Kirsten and Justin and their son Graham at Whole Foods.
As I mentioned, the weather was spectacular, so we sat outside on the second level deck before we did a little shopping.
I think that Graham was flirting with me a little bit. Isn’t he precious?
The weekend also consisted of some more walks, a couple of movies, and utilizing our grill.
It is kind of hard to believe that these summer weekends are coming to an end. I’m pretty excited for September though because I love the Fall…and because I’ll be seeing Lionel Richie in concert!
How did you spend your weekend? Are you sad that the summer is almost over?
