Visiting the Enchanted Village

Photo-A-Day #2825

To start the year off we went to IKEA to look for something for our living room as an entertainment center. Ever since we moved in we’ve been using a side table to hold our DVR, DVD Payer, Wii U, Apple TV and more. I don’t know how we keep them all on the same table at once. It isn’t working for us anymore so it is time for something else. We looked all around the store and found a Buffet that I think will work best for us. So, we’ll have to go back and pick that up.

We got there early enough that we had lunch at IKEA. They have ribs now. And they weren’t half bad either. The kids enjoyed it. Eva wanted to go to the play place but it was packed so she came with us through the store. She did pretty well for most of it but then got tired and whiny. It is a big store and I can understand it, but our afternoon wasn’t over yet.

We went from IKEA over to Jordan’s Furniture to see the Enchanted Village. We had never taken the kids to see this and we had never gone ourselves, either. It was interesting to see. Eva sorta liked it but she really enjoyed playing the Rudolph race game after the walk through the Enchanted Village. This was a skee-ball type game where as you rolled the balls up and the reindeer ran across the field. It was just Eva and I playing the game, so she won. She was delighted to win a little teddy bear from the game. So it was a nice trip.

Today Allison and I went to Jordan’s Furniture in Reading, MA. We met up with our friend Maureen and her sister Peggy and brother Bob as well as her cousin Julie, Peggy’s friend Heather and Mo’s friend Linda. This photo is of Bob, Linda, Maureen, Allison and Peggy.

We met for lunch at Fuddruckers, which was right inside Jordan’s Furniture. Fuddruckers is know for their large and tasty burgers. We each got a Barry and Eliot burger. Barry and Eliot are the two brothers who are the face of Jordan’s Furniture. The burgers were very tasty and Fuddruckers has a large condiment bar where you can put many things on your burger and make it how you like it.

Allison and I got to Jordan’s Furniture a little early, but not to worry, Jordan’s Furniture is not like any other furniture store. Inside they have BeanTown which is a huge display made out of Jelly Belly jelly beans. The theme is BeanTown because that is a nickname for Boston and all the things there are a play on Boston and Boston landmarks. They have a n exhibit called liquid fireworks and it is amazing. It is water shot out of tubes that is lit up with different colors and set to music. They also have an indoor trapeze that you can learn how to use.

The main reason we went was to celebrate Peggy’s birthday and see Night at The Museum at the IMAX that was also within the Jordan’s Furniture. Was there furniture there? Yes, they have tons of beautiful furniture inside. The movie was very funny and I was entertained. They don’t show trailers for non IMAX movies so I didn’t see the Transformers trailer. Oh well I’ll see it eventually on the big screen.

We also gave Maureen the Soda maker, and she and Peggy are very excited to start using it. Maureen is going to start with PayPerPost posts soon. Her blog, We’re in a Fight is very funny and you should check it out. I wish Maureen good luck as a Postie. And I’m here if she needs any help.

Here are some photos from today. I think my Sanyo Xacti C4 is on its last legs however. It is having a terrible time focusing with the still shots but the video is still going strong except you can now hear the lens making focus adjustments. Well I can hear them as I review clips and edit them with my earphones on. I think it is time to retire my longtime faithful camera. I’m sad to have to do it but it isn’t going to be reliable and I need a reliable camera I can travel with. Anyway, the pictures.

Allison and Peggy each won ducks at the duck boat races.

Today is also my friend Derek’s birthday. So Happy Birthday Derek. I hope you got all the Wii games you wanted.
