Day 4 - a down day of sorts

Again... Psst...I'm writing this long hand and will transpose it later (like right now, Monday) since I don't have internet this weekend. Sorry.

Debbie and I slept until noon today. Not a good thing. We didn't get to bed last night until after 2. I wrote my post quick when I went to the loft to "pee", just so I was legal for the day, but the party didn't actually end until Evans! sent everyone home at 1:30 since they all had a big brunch thing today or something.

So we slept late, which is very unusual for me, even if I do stay out late. We took our time getting ready, went back to TJ Maxx to return the shoes Debbie bought but didn't wear, and then went to the mall. Thom and Evans were out and running some errands they needed to finish. We found The Book of General Ignorance and loved it so I bought it. There are some truly interesting items there. I encourage anyone to read it. It's quite fun.

When we got back Evans took us to Graeter's for some ice cream. Thom went for a run and then met up with us there. He decided he wanted to run back and Evans had left for a meeting so Debbie and I had a little adventure travel to find our way back. Luckily, I'm map aware, so we made it back without too much of an incident.

We had dinner at the Oceanaire which had just opened a couple weeks ago. Debbie's dad is a regular at the one in the Cities so we had a gift card to use. The food was incredible. The service was awesome. I had the best fish I have ever had...it was so delicious. I wish I could afford to eat there all the time. That and that there would be one in my town, but that's unlikely.

After that we went back to the loft to wait for T&E to get home from their dinner. There was another opera event that night that Evans had to go to, so I went with him while Thom and Debbie stayed home and had some time to themselves. I was really happy to have some alone time with Evans. Because his job is so demanding and has a lot of travel, I don't get to see him near enough. We had a great talk to and from the event. And I got to see Nate and Jared again. It was just great.

So now I'm going to go to bed again. It was a great night but tomorrow we have to head home. I'm kind of sad now. I don't really want to leave.

Sounds like a fun trip. I just put the book on my Amazon list.
