We live in a small town. I think it’s actually considered a village. Our main street has so few restaurants and shops that I could actually list them all for you (but I won’t!) . It’s not much, especially compared to many of the other towns around here. Blink and it’s gone. So when our beloved “bagel shop” closed, the kids were depressed. I’m only joking a little bit on that. But a few weeks later “the eatery” opened up. It pretty much looks like the bagel shop, but has fancier sandwiches. And ice cream.
So when my grandmother sent the kids a few dollars in the mail, Caroline immediately thought we should try out the new eatery. She opted for TWO scoops of Oreo ice cream. She made a real nice decent in it. Liam couldn’t decide what he wanted. He picked a black & white cookie, ate half of it and then immediately regretted his choice. Can’t say we were surprised by this!
Our town might be little, there might not be a lot to do on main street on a Friday night (well, we do have a “pub” in town, but we now drink our beer in the comfort of our home), but we like it here.
