-rolling hills

-driving everywhere (no walking, biking, busing, training)

-single story book stores

Summer was in the process of leaving us when my family had this one last cookout/picnic/corn roast.  Chiara was always asking to have picnics and we all kind liked them ourselves.  My dad did a corn roast.  Pretty good I must say.

Went to Texas road House for the Texan.  I enjoyed it as well, of course.

We have to eat in shifts around here when we have company.  I’m thinking maybe it’s time we just get that bigger table.

Date night.  We went to Barnes & Nobles.  The weirdest thing happened to me when we pulled up to the store.  I noticed the childrens section through a window and thought to myself, “hmm, they have their children’s section on first floor”.  I immediatley took an overall glance of the building and realized that it was all one story.  Every section was on the first floor.  At that moment I realized that I was expecting a two or three story bookstore like I’ve gone to the last four years.  I forgot, that things are normally on one floor here in the country.  The coffee shop just didn’t have quite the same affect sitting there on ground level.  Something about being up on second floor with city lights and action to observe out the window.  Nevertheless, we totally enjoyed ourselves.
