A Fun, Full Day

"Apparently there is nothing that cannot happen today." 

                                                                                - Mark Twain

Yesterday was another big event for our library's Big Read programs.  We were painting the fence, a'la Tom Sawyer.  The day couldn't have been better.  Just warm enough (right Savvy, with that sunburn) and a nice crowd of kids and parents to participate.

Lady K honored us with her presence at the event and was enjoying running around in the park with Mommy Texter and "B".

Next weekend will be even a larger event as the town has it's kid's Fallfest going on.  Savvy and I will be helping out again.  Rather, Savvy helps by face painting, I fetch and carry and generally stay out of everyone's way after that.

Afterwards, Savvy and I took a stroll down Last Chance Gulch and did some window shopping.  I picked up a couple of items, as did she.  We then had an early dinner at Bert and Ernies.  I had heard good things about them, but had not stopped to eat there until now.  

Savvy had a pasta dish and started out her meal with French Onion Soup.  Despite my dislike of 'wet bread', it was really good.  Her pasta dish had pent pasta in a cream sauce with thinly sliced sausage.  It was really good.  I went with fish and chips, as no one in the house likes to eat fish except me.  The fish was nicely battered and really tasty.   My salad that I started with was served, without asking, with the dressing on the side.  I had a creamy parmesan dressing.  Frankly, the salad needed little dressing as far as I was concerned.  There were dried cranberries and candied pecans for a touch of sweetness and some shaved parmesan cheese.  We were too busy eating to take pictures of the main course!

What I really liked about Bert and Ernies was our waiter, Trevor.  Very personable, great sense of humor and very accommodating.  We were there about 30 minutes before the 5pm dinner service start.  And of course, to be difficult, both of us wanted something on the dinner menu.  He very kindly went and asked the chefs if we could order off the dinner menu a tad early and they kindly let us.  The meal was enough we both took some home with us to savor today.

Walking back to the car, we stopped at the Big Dipper, the pigs that we are.  Double scoops in a waffle cone - Mexican Chocolate (sorry, Texter, has cinnamon in it) and Birthday Cake.  Like a birthday party in a cone!  Half our cones are in the freezer for later consummation.  Wonder if ice cream is concerned a breakfast item?
