occasionally you have those days that you want to replay over + over. whether they were momentous or just a typical day that starts out with no plans + ends up being unassumingly great. that happened on sunday. the husband + I ventured out for a late breakfast. which didn’t quite go as planned, because by the time we arrived the only menu options were lunch. we obliged (obviously our hunger had no regard for what meal it was or was not). we then drove by + made a split decision to stop at a local brewery, firetrucker, for “just one beer”.

we were the brewery’s first patrons of the day. and before our “one beer” reached the bottom of the glass, I wandered over to the stack of games. we ended up drinking beer + playing games for hours. it was jenga, then connect four, and ending with a lesson + game of battleship. we laughed about how great and equally terrible we were at each game. (I’ll take credit for the latter). we sampled a different beer each round. hardly having to convince each other “should we have another?”. sometimes all you need for an ideal day is to visit a new place + clear your plans. with that said, if you’re in the des moines area, I’d highly recommend a visit to firetrucker brewery. it’s in ankeny, IA. they have great beer, fun taproom, and allow dogs on their outdoor patio!

what are your favorite day dates? do you prefer plans or whims?

    I lived in Des Moines for a semester in college and don’t remember there being that much to do, I feel like you two are always busy and off explore all the time! This sounds like a pretty good weekend — so quality time playing together with no agenda! Hope you are doing well girl! πŸ™‚
