Since moving to Ennis I have only managed to explore downtown once. The experience was exhausting, Brecken's mood was less than pleasant and I was sleep deprived. Sadly, I was defeated that day. John sensed how overwhelming life had become for me so he suggested that we put Brecken in preschool one day a week.I cried the first day I dropped him off. I felt as though I might miss a monumental milestone in his life--that I would return back that afternoon and he would know how to ride a bike or would have learned to how to write his alphabet. I was a little dramatic.
After leaving him that morning something glorious happened when I returned home. I took a nap, showered for more than three minutes, straightened my hair, put on makeup, fed Addison, watched an episode of The Real Housewives of New York (guilty pleasure), and ate a warm breakfast. and cried tears of joy.
John and I have even decided to eat lunch out once a week while Brecken is at school. A few days ago we visited the Gravel Bar, which was delightful. John and I both enjoyed the gyros. wickedly good. It may be the best bar food you'll ever taste.
Later that afternoon Addison and I took full advantage of our freedom and ventured downtown where we strolled through the quaint western shops which were packed with Montana apparel, unique knickknacks, and a collection of cowboy boots that would make John Wayne jump out of his grave. So if you are still stumped on what to do for a fun family vacation, come visit us here. I'll make sure you'll have the best bar gyros ever.
