We were up every morning around 4 am. We decided to embrace it and see the sunrise (the boys were excited for this, saying we hardly ever see them, and then we recounted all the ones we could remember). We headed over to the newly remodeled Starbucks (the first two days didn't work out, though, since they were still under construction). We finally hit the opening day on Friday morning (oooh! aahhh!) and returned on Saturday afternoon to check out the outdoor seating (we had Lilli in tow, as she was very curious too). They've given it a bit of personality, trying to make it "not just another Starbucks." We liked the big LOGAN and the dark tile and dark wainscoting. They've got some vintage coffee pots. They've also got a lot of photos from the neighborhood, many of them historical. Still not much seating there, but I suppose they can't do much about that aspect. They can make it look pretty, but they just can't make it any physically bigger.
Today in celebration of Earth Day, we have done almost nothing. Except that Martin shaved off his beard. The boys helped, dictating which section to shave off first and next and so on.
Have I mentioned that she is an extremely tolerant dog?
