A night out






Yesterday, we went to visit my gramma. She was happy to see the girls and it was a nice visit. It had been way too long since we had been there. Then we had lunch with my mom. The girls like to eat at Applebee's, so that is what we had. We got home, and Schaun who had been home alone all day wanted to go out. He practically had to drag us out the door, but off we went.

We almost went to the Great Mall to walk around, but just trying to park didn't go smooth, so we drove away. We made a stop at Barnes & Noble where the girls got to pick out a couple books. In the move I realized what a problem I have with books. I like to buy them and keep them forever. During the packing I gave a ton away and while unpacking I realized I still had too many. So I just made a donation to the library. Needless to say, I did not get any.

We stopped and had dinner at Mimi's. I have never been there. It was a cute place and the food was alright. The kids meals were really good as they came with huge slices of fruit like honeydew, pineapple, orange, and cantaloupe. The best part was dessert though. This kids meal comes with a "dirt cup". The girls were a little hesitant about it because it was so dirt like, but once we convinced them that we would not actually feed them dirt and it was chocolate, they were all over it. We all laughed and had a fun night.

We LOVED Mimi's. :) Gotta love a restaurant with good kids' meals! Looks like you had a great family day -- the WHOLE day! Now, use Sunday for resting!

Cute. My youngest still won't eat worms in a sundae like that ... don't know why he wouldn't believe us, his very sarcastic parents who make a joke out of everything.

Unlike most people- I did not like Mimi's. I ordered the spinach lasagna. Who would have thought that spinach lasagna would be filled with spinach?!?
