Our goal has become to eat local more often.
We live in a city brimming with delicious, locally-owned restaurants and we don’t support them enough.
It was easy to go to a chain restaurant when the girls were babies. We knew who had high chairs, what bathrooms had changing tables, who had good kids’ menus. It was safe, easy, and fast, all things that are very important when eating out with small children.
But now we’re becoming more mobile. Our kids are getting bigger. More patient. Better eaters. So we’re exploring our city. Getting to know the places and things that we knew so well before kids, but had to take a break from for a while.
A couple weeks ago we headed downtown and had a late lunch at Creation Cafe. Whether you eat inside or outside on the patio overlooking the canal, the view of Indy’s skyline can’t be beat. Featuring local breweries, a delicious bakery and ice cream shop, and tons of board games and books for your wait, Creation Cafe has something for everyone.
Chris and I used to eat their often before kids. It’s the perfect place to end an afternoon spent on the canal. Now with kids, we plan on heading back down with our bikes and stopping in for a treat before calling it an evening.
As we ate lunch, there was a baby shower happening in the corner. What a great place to have a shower. Now I just need someone to get engaged or pregnant so I can have an excuse to throw a party there.
So as the weather starts to cool off, the Grahams are starting a new adventure: visit more local restaurants. I can’t think of a more delicious goal for fall.
