Only in America would a popular fast food chain coming to your town make front page news, but that’s exactly what happened when California based In-N-Out Burger announced they were bringing their popular west-coast burger joints to the Dallas area. One of their new locations opened up about ten minutes from our house last week, so we decided to head over and see how long the wait was. The traffic for the drive through circled around the building and on to the exit lane of the highway! However, despite the popularity of their drive through, the wait to eat inside was only about ten minutes, so that’s what we did!
My wife and I are first time parents, so we are learning new things about parenthood every day. For instance, today I learned that pushing a stroller thorough a crowded dining room is fun. (Not!) By the way, being a parent has opened my eyes to all kinds of architectural fails…..such as the lack of elevators and stroller (wheelchair) ramps at malls! Ugggg….! But I digress.
We hung out at In-N-Out burger for a while enjoying our delicious burger and fries…..and thinking about how many hours on the elliptical machine it’s going to take to work this lunch off! After lunch we took Noah swimming at Baylor Tom Landry Fitness Center, which by the way, he really enjoys! This was one of Saturdays I really enjoy. The schedule was empty. My wife and I were both off from work. We got to hang out. Rest. Play. Eat. Swim. (and cuddle with our little Noah.) The weeks are so busy with work, various therapy appointments, school, and other projects we have going on, so weekends like this are much appreciated when they come along!
We also found out that next weekend we get to hangout with our friends, the Skaggs! They have a three-year old who was born with Down Syndrome, two other awesome little kid-o’s, and are just a blast to hang out with! So we’re excited to hang out, and (hopefully) watch some fireworks with the Skaggs crew next weekend! I’m certain some good videos, and pictures will come out of it! 🙂
