My family has a tradition of gathering together at Costco (of all places) for dinner once a month. (For those of you who don’t know what Costco is – it is a lot like Sam’s Club).
You see, we all love Costco and their pizza is pretty good. So, my mother, sisters, brother and their families all gather together with mine at Costco. We take up about 3 – 4 tables in the eating area and eat our pizza, hot dogs or chicken rolls. What makes it even more fun is that we find that our families intermix with each other. I often find myself eating with one of my sisters, my niece or one of my nephews. My kids take the opportunity to sit with their cousins, aunts and uncles.
After eating dinner, we all go shopping. Costco has lots of things that we like, but my big weakness is the book section. I absolutely love to read….especially fiction. So, I always budget a little money for spending on books.
As we pulled into the Costco parking lot, I noticed a bunch of shrubs planted too close together. Unfortunately, a very common occurrence – especially in parking lots.
