We ended up going to a little restaurant that a friend of Keith's had recommended that required a leisurely 45 minute drive to a nearby small town. Dinner was great and then we went strolling around the square afterwards (to walk off some of the dinner perhaps?). This building is the county courthouse and I was enchanted by its charm. Keith pointed out that it was built of granite and I think that was one of the things that made it such an imposing building.
The square was full of cute shops, including a craft mall and several antique shops. Unfortunately it was too late in the day and they all were closed. I do believe I can talk him into going back with me sometime, especially when we saw the cutest park ever! Honestly I see a Saturday with Brooklyn in our future.
And Happy Birthday! Today is also my baby brother's birthday. So a very happy birthday to you and I hope you enjoyed your dinner as well. :)
