Going for a Drive

So on Sunday we decided that we would drive down the road and try to find the Build A Bear store that we knew was about 30 min away. We have many animals from there and a couple of them needed to be "fixed" because they were "sick". Since there is not a store in Pensacola we searched for one that wasn't far. It seemed like it would be simple to find. We had our GPS in tow and started down the road. Then we came to the conclusion that even though we had our GPS, it has not been updated since we bought it and many places that are just a year or two old do not show up on it. We tried to think of what else we could search for that would be near by and couldn't really come up with anything since we didn't know that area at all. A drive that should have taken us about 30 minutes, ended up taking us over an hour. We went way out of our way and once we were in the area, couldn't find the place. In the meantime, everyone in the car was starving so that didn't help matters. We couldn't even find a place to eat. My husband and I joked about how bad we would be on the Amazing Race and we even had a GPS to help us. Finally, we ended up finding a McDonald's to eat at. Not what I had planned at all. In the end, we found the store, the girls got their animals fixed, and even were able to each get a new one thanks to Great Grandma!! So, thanks for that one!
