I have been on this deli sandwich kick, at least it is better than the Taco Bell one. So, Paul and I started to brain storm places we could go for a really good sandwich. Paul remembered a few years ago going to this house that had been converted into a deli. We didn't remember the name, we remembered the general location, and we remembered the house being blue...and we were off. We drove up and down streets trying to find that house, and while we drove we remembered all the little things about our newly wed days. We were so poor then, and didn't experience all the finer things of life. We lived a much simpler life. One that included long walks to find change on the ground, and walking the mall to dream of things we couldn't afford.
(the kids learning how to properly slide down the stairs in pillow cases, sleeping bags, and whatever else they can come up with!)
We eventually found that old blue house we were looking for, and were disappointed to see that it has since gone out of business. Darn economy...that place was good. So we ended up at Navajo Hogan, and answered the near million questions that Savannah had about before she was born. It was fun to talk about our first apartment, and how much we loved that neighborhood. How much we hated renting, and OMG we have been together a really long time!!
We stopped at Toys R Us on the way home from lunch, and let both kids pick a new toy out. We never can get out of a store without looking for Sabrina something too. She ended up getting a car seat, and we probably shouldn't talk about how many outfits she ended up with. :)
We didn't do anything spectacular today, except that really long family nap...but it was the perfect way to spend a Saturday.
I am always reminded that it is the simple things that make the best kind of memories for me. I will go to bed tonight knowing that these 3 little people, and one handsome man I am constantly surrounded by make my life pretty awesome without even trying.
