Friday's Adventure

Yesterday, after work, we took a small road trip to Michigan City. The initial reason was to pick up a few games from Toys R Us, that our local store didn't have in stock. Then we headed for the Outlet Mall. We had a great time walking around and looking at all the different stores. It seemed rather empty, for a Friday night, maybe the result of the off and on little bits of rain. We found many bargains, especially in the OshKosh store, where we saved 70% on almost everything we bought. We found Christmas dresses for the girls, a couple shirts for Mattey, and then Megan cleaned up with a couple of different outfits. Kelly found most of her bargains in the Eddie Bauer store and a couple at the GAP.

After a long night of shopping, we stopped to eat at a place called Shoops. It looked like a 50's style diner that sold hamburgers. As we walked into the place all you could smell was smoke, so we promptly turned around and headed back up the road to Applebee's. We were seated immediately, great for a Friday night, but then had to wait quite a while to get our food. Luckily the wait was worth it and the girls behaved very well. I never knew that Applebee's made such a good burger and shake.

The drive home was just as nice as the rest of the night. Both girls fell asleep allowing Kelly and I to talk with each other without constant interruptions.
