Happy Thanksgiving Eve

In the grand tradition of Thanksgiving Eves, we went out tonight. To test mattresses. Oddly enough, the store was quite empty. I can't imagine why there weren't more people out, trying to appear comfortable lying on a mattress in a brightly lit store while a salesperson stares at them. The store we went to was a "healthy back" store, so they had several giant exercise balls that the kids enjoyed knocking things over playing with, while we tried out some new mattresses.

We followed that up with a delicious dinner at an Italian restaurant near our house. The restaurant was nearly empty, not surprisingly. Almost all of the families that were there had kids close to the ages of ours, so I didn't feel quite so badly when they demanded spaghetti and meatballs, and then ate almost none. They did devour the vanilla bean gelato, though. I preferred the bread pudding myself.

Then home and bedtime, so we can get up in the morning. Cook a lot of potatoes, and head out to stuff ourselves full of food for the rest of the weekend. Happy Thanksgiving!
