Where Are The People?

This is what Oliver asked me this morning after waking up and walking into an empty living room. After having family visiting the past two weeks, our house feels pretty empty. In order to relieve our restlessness, we went to Harris Teeter, the new grocery store that just opened last week; its at he top of Oliver's "Favorite Things To Do," list.The store has a dragon ride and Oliver likes to put two quarters in then PRESS THE BUTTON, (the most exciting part,) then sit on the slow moving dragon for about a minute. After that he hops off and grabs a kid sized shopping cart and pushes it around the store. Yeah. Big time fun.

Because a visit to the grocery store just doesn't do it for me, we walked around downtown, with the intention of going to L.A.B. for pretzels and a flight.

To our dismay, the LAB was closed for employee appreciation day. Next door is the restaurant, The Southern, which also serves pretzels and beer, so we decided to give it a try.

While these pretzels were perfectly acceptable, they do not compare to the homemade pretzels at the LAB. Lesson learned.

I remember when my girls were obsessed with pushing those little carts around.

I'm sending you an email on what you asked, but the funny story about the Williams Sonoma lady is going to take a while, but it is coming :)

Oliver is a fellow who knows what he likes and doesn't need other's approval of his taste - I pray that lasts throughout his life - wouldn't it be wonderful if we all were so comfortable in our own skin! Cute outfit Megan is wearing - isn't that the one she bought to wear to a girls night out?
