An absolutely fun evening

I do so enjoy a spontaneous evening.

We don't do much of that around here.  So when it does happen, it's a darn good time. 

Last night, we ended up going to Target and Applebees with the Hoffman family.  Which doesn't sound like a big deal, unless you remember that the closest Target and Applebees are like an hourish away, so it's not a trip we take too terribly often.

We had a darn good time.  Between sweet little B's voice telling us he was going to "Taget" and he was going to get "poopcorn" and a "dink" and T getting so upset that Andy and I were buying a Handy Manny toy and his parents weren't, the boys kept me giggling.  A few times, when we were a few aisles over, I could hear B asking, "Where's Anny?"   

Of course we can't forget Andy sharing with everyone his love of barbeque flavored dog treats.  Or the way he grabbed a bag to toss in the cart and I asked, "You're buying thirteen dollars worth of dog treats?"  And his response, "I'm worth it.  I deserve a nice shiny coat."  And Andy and I probably shouldn't be allowed in Target without some guidelines.  He ended up buying a "hot pepper bar" of cheese and summer sausage and Coke in bottles.  I wound up walking out with White Christmas and It's A Wonderful Life on DVD (they were together--for THIRTEEN dollars!!)  And all of that is in addition to the stuff we actually needed. 

All in all, we had a darn good night with some dear friends--and I loved every second of it :)
