After we attended K's fifth grade graduation this week, we went out for a celebration dinner at a local chain restaurant called Village Inn. I had a 20% off coupon, so it was a good cost-effective way to dine out with a big group, plus there are a lot of choices to make kids happy there.
Now, Village Inn is a sit-down with service kind of restaurant, but it's sort of in line with IHOP or Denny's or a place like that. Not too fancy, but good enough for a party with mostly kids.
Anyway, the next day, J and I were out and about and we drove by a Village Inn. She must have had it on her mind since the previous night, but suddenly she said, "I know why they call it Village Inn!"
I said, "You do?"
She said, "Yes, because there is no drive-thru! People have to go 'in' if they want to eat there."
Congratulations to all the students we know graduating or moving up to a new school-level this year (elementary to middle, preschool to elementary, etc.) -- especially our nieces, K and N!
