One of the benefits of "working only one day a week" (ha ha. no really, it's that funny. and original) is the relatively open schedule for the week. Yesterday Shelley wondered about a little trip to do a bit of shopping. This morning I re-arranged a couple things and off we went to the outlet mall/big box cluster in Cambridge for a family day.

We found a little something for everyone at Old Navy (like a chocolate brown casual sportcoat for $15, marked down from $55!) picked up a few more somethings at the Roots factory outlet store and lunch at Montana's. It was our first restaurant meal as a family of 4 that wasn't fast food.

The kids held up well considering the extended travel and change to their routine. It was quality time that filled with bargains galore. It was a good time of week to go; there was little in the way of line-ups and clothes were still neatly folded and arranged so we didn't have to pick through piles of disarray. I wonder how it would be on a Sunday morning...
