The wind was hitting the window and we all sat there with our jackets of for the entire meal
Each month my husband, his brother and sister, and significant others get together at a different restaurant. It is a great way to keep up with each other’s lives and it serves to get their mom out of the house. Ever since she was widowed it is harder to get her to participate in anything social. She does, however, love to go out to eat. If we take her to appointments we always schedule them around a meal time so that she is more willing to leave the house. She is not a morning person and the only way she will go to an early doctor appointment is to offer to take her to breakfast afterward. Sometimes I feel like I am bribing a child to eat their vegetables by tempting them with desert. But, it is worth it. Anyway, this past week was our time to go to dinner. My sister-in-law read about a new restaurant that had opened up near the lake that she wanted to try. We made reservations like we always do and asked for tables by the window. Their mom loves to look at the water and we figured it would be a special treat. The weather was not cooperating though because it was windy and cold. When we arrived we asked if there was a way to change our table location but because we are such a large group there was no way to do this. The wind was hitting the window and we all sat there with our jackets of for the entire meal. I think we will try that place again during the summer when we know that it will be more comfortable and we can possibly sit outside to eat.
