The next day Lisa had some classes so I just played on the lab top until she got a lunch break.

Here are some cool glass elevators.

I took the stairs down this time so Lisa did not know I was coming down behind her.

When I got back to town, I took Lisa to do some site seeing before we headed home. There is a cool park across the river from where we were staying.

We have seen the TV ads for Chili’s so Lisa wanted to eat there to give it a try. Since there are no Chili’s in Yakima we guess there would be one in Tri-cities since we share the TV station with them. On November 14th, 2009 we wheeled Juniper Dunes near Pasco. We decided to eat in Tri-cities before heading back home. We asked TJ40 where a Chili’s was. He did not know, so he called his wife to have her look it up. The nearest Chili’s was in Spokane. Lisa was not happy to hear that.

On September 22nd, 2010 Lisa finely got to eat at Chili’s. LOL

After lunch we headed home. There were a lot of little twisters a long I-90.
