Nature Park

Had to get an oil change and oil rotation so went to Allen Tire Company. In the past I would get tires at Costco because they are cheaper but to get them changed and to go back for tire rotations takes at least a couple of hours if not a few each time. Before having a child that was ok but I don’t have that kind of time anymore. So Allen Tire works well for me. Prices aren’t too bad, you can get in and out in an hour or so, there’s a Starbucks across the street, a little playground nearby, the bathroom is spic and span (what? yes, clean!), and the manager is trustworthy.

I didn’t feel like sitting at Starbucks, my daughter was not with me so was going to take a walk while I waited. Jesse, the manager, recommended I check out a park quarter mile away. It was very nice. So now another plus for using Allen Tire in Lake Forest! Or a nice park to have lunch at after a playdate at Pump It Up Lake Forest which is just across the street.

Good tree for climbing

Chocolate Chip Oreo Cookies and more!

So after I fed some delighted college students with Chocolate Chip Oreo Cookie Two one of them mentioned a neapolitan Oreo so I couldn’t resist. And I like mint so got some of those Oreos too. And for a bonus got some Caramel Delites Girl Scout cookies and this is what you get!

It was a great finish to our Asian- themed meal.
