there's a supermarket in yonkers called stew leonard's that is really something else. it's fashioned after a barn and has a silo and small zoo, which is kind of strange considering what they sell inside. the layout takes you through in a zig zag pattern instead of the typical rows. kids love it because they have all kinds of puppets and things going on to entertain them. adults love it because they have great stuff, including really delicious milk.
we took charlie last weekend and he seemed happy with his pistachio ice cream and all the free samples. he bought a lobster and had a good laugh making it because after we dropped him off we went back to the park in long island city and our car battery totally died with no warning (hear that honda!?). we had to be towed and just about made it to the dealership before they closed. scott is a bit obsessive with his car and charlie laughed so hard thinking of him up all night trying to figure out what was wrong. it's been a while since he's had a good laugh, so i suppose it was worth the $200 repair.
well, our battery has been recharged and it seems like a good time to head outside and take a short break for
ps i got the best kettle corn at stew's place - it's slightly salty & sweet. yum!
