We took a family outing tonight to The Cupcake Shoppe in downtown Raleigh. I always feel so hip and trendy when we head downtown with all our many, many children. I mean, people LIVE down there. I mean really LIVE. You see families out walking their children in strollers. Walking dogs. Sitting on patios watching the world go by. And then there is us. We are like when the suburbs decide to come to town. Like we just don't fit in. It is a huge treat for us. Parallel parking and EVERYTHING!
