The city did a picnic this evening that involved a ton of free food; dinner, beverages, chips (not french fries, for you Europeans... what'd you say they were called over there Frugally Challenged, crisps?), cookies, and cake. It was just the break I've been needing. We'd already planned to go with friends of ours but I forgot it was this evening until the phone rang. I was needing to run to the store in order to make dinner tonight and I was thrilled that no such shopping trip would be in order. Hurray for free food!!! Plus little Abe got to climb around in a fire truck (the highlight of his day), play in a bouncy house and play at the playground with a bunch of other kids. Mark that one down for adding a bit of spice to the mundane. This momma was just happy about the free dinner. All the other stuff was icing.
