Shopping in Topeka

After a quiet morning, we all loaded into the truck and took a drive into Topeka for a little shopping and an early dinner. Topeka is a little more than 50 miles east of Fort Riley, right along I-70. While there is a WalMart and some other stores right around Fort Riley, the big box stores and department stores such as Dillard's & Penney's are found in Topeka.

Sara & Kevin needed to get a new humidifier and Kev also needed a winter coat. So, we went to Dick's Sporting Goods and Bed Bath & Beyond. Both items were acquired with little trouble and then it was off to dinner.

We went to Buffalo Wild Wings for dinner as Kevin said they have the best wings he's ever had. They were pretty good, too. Randy got a burger and said it was good as well. Next door to the restaurant is Cold Stone Creamery, a great ice cream place. We all got something except Randy - he was too full from dinner, which is a first! But, I think he knew he'd get some of my milkshake, and he did. :)

Back at the house, we all assumed comfy positions on the couch and recliners. I think Ann even got a little catnap, too.

Do you think Kevin & Sara have settled into married life??? :)

Now, while I post this entry, everyone's watching a movie.

It remains bitter cold here; just 18 degrees this afternoon. However, we're supposed to warm up to the 40s by the end of the week. That'll feel like a heat wave! :)

Not much on the agenda tomorrow. I'm going to Curves and pick up prescriptions at WalMart, but that's about it as far as I know. Can you believe Christmas is just three days away???? Hope you're ready!

Until the next time . . .
