Girls Night Out

On Thursday night my daughter-in-law hired a sitter and all the big girls went out to eat. We went to a place in Stillwater called Marx. The food was fabulous. Even the trip to the ladies room was fun. Check out the "sink".
Where is the sink? It is that slab of granite tilted toward the "drain". I am so glad Diane told me to take my camera with me! Not a stranger there, that is granddaughter, Kenzie.
Kenzie is big sister to the three little ones I was watching.

We were clicking away with our cameras. I really like the green wall. The "sink" was outside the bathrooms between the men's and women's and a two-way mirror from the kitchen overlooks it. I imagine the staff gets a big kick out of watching the patrons try to figure out how to wash their hands.

Two way mirrors on the stall doors, too!

Layla was included with all of us older girls in this adventure. She found the bathroom to be as fun as the rest of us.

Kenzie is 19 and technically falls into the "angst" category. She was at odds with her mom, but we were sitting in a round booth and had no choice once we all sat down! This is Diane, the best daughter-in-law ever! I have truly been blessed with wonderful in-law children.

Love these smiling faces!

Here we are, the seven of us. A very nice gentleman offered to take this shot of our group. From the left is my daughter, Jill, her daughter, Layla, me, Kenzie, Diane, her mom, Barb, and my daughter, Adrienne.
Back to the sink. I bet them all that the minute I let he who plumbs see the pictures he would want to make one just like it. Wish I had bet some big money ........ cause I was right!

Heck! I'd be all shades of excited to have a sink like that, too! It looks like a great girls' night out!

Mom...Kenzie is 20, she'll be 21 in a month.

Oops, you are right, Jill!!! She sometimes acts like she is still 16, so I guess that will keep her "young"!

What a fun night out. And what a cool sink. I want one too. I also want one of those bathrooms where the shower doesn't have walls.

That sink is the coolest thing ever. We have some new restaurants around here with similar sinks. You're almost afraid to use them, but engineering {and gravity!} guarantees the water will eventually find its way down the drain.

And might I add what a pretty bunch you all are!

What a wonderful time it looks like you were having. Family is the best and it looks like you have the best!

Oh, that's fantastic! I happen to love fun bathrooms as I feel I've seen my share. The joke in my family is that if we want to know if we've been somewhere before just let me check out the bathroom-I often recognize that before I recognize the place. This would definitely be a memorable bathroom!

You have a beautiful family. What fun for all of the girls:)

I'm glad you told us where the sink was located since there was a man in the first photo.....

Stephanie said...

That granite slab would have fooled me. I seem to be continually bemused in bathrooms - don't understand how to flush sometimes... Nice shot of you and all the girls!

Nancy said...

You have a beautiful family, Kathy!

That sink was awesome.

Having just moved from that area, I could relate to this post. I love Stillwater! (We lived in Prior Lake.)

Jenna said...

That sink is awesome! Looks like you "girls" had a great time! I love girls night out!!

Teresa - in the Middle Side of Life said...

that is totally awesome! i'd love to have a sink like that. would make "wiping down the sink" much easier to do - just sling the water toward the drain and you're done!

i think a shower without walls would also be great except that it does make a mess on the floor. we stayed in a hotel that had one like that and i had a lot of water outside of the "shower" area.

glad that you're having a good time. that restaurant looks like a great place to visit.

Looks like you had a great night out! Lovely pics.

Karen said...

I'm enjoying getting caught up on your blog... my poor computer is going kaput, so I had to get another. I'm enjoying all your pictures and your wonderful grandchildren.. aren't they great!?! So much more fun than raising our own, don't you think? :)

How fun for you to get away from it all! Nice for you to have a girly night -- you deserve it.

Thank you for sharing with us the funky and groovy bathroom to boot!

Hope all is well -- I've been a crazy, busy and not feeling so well gal this week and am sorry it's taken me so long to come by.

Hope all is well on your end!

Peace and serenity,

Looks like a real fun night out! Love that bathroom! I always have my cell phone with me just in case I run into bathrooms like this - I can snap a picture or two! Love the two way mirrors! Hysterical!

Oh, that does look like everyone had fun. Those doors were really interesting. I'm so glad everyone got to spend time together. Very fun post.

Thought you might like to know that I have a visitor on my blog, today, who will be sharing her grampa's true-life adventures as a Rider on one of the Orphan Trains! There's room for everyone to gather in close and get to know Donna, while enjoying her wonderful story-telling talents. I look forward to seeing you there.
