Retro McDonalds...

So Libertyville has got to have one of the coolest McD's ever. I am not a fan of eating there, ever, but the kids were really awesome at the bank today and I promised they could pick where we would eat. I have to admit, that while not the best, the Caesar salad with grilled chicken was tolerable.








The kids loved the seating, though they mostly faced each other and chatted the entire meal and I was kind of the third wheel today...I needed a date I guess. *sigh* Shawn was having lunch with some guys from work and I bet it was fabulous! (Anything would have been more fabulous than McD's right?) In any case the music was good! "Oh, oh Iiiii Should have known better...." Kira wanted to know why I knew all the words and I told her that Grammy would torture us with her music in the car when we were kids. She piped up with "Oh, like you make us listen to Dave Matthews?" WHA???? Not AT.ALL.THE.SAME!!! My music is COOL. Grammy listened to OLDIES!





Then Kira got all silly and made her ketchup a "pool" and her fries were the people and then apparently they commited suicide by jumping out of the pool, hopping across the napkin and being eaten.





Then we rounded up all the Barnes and Noble giftcards with left over amounts on them (Miwa did the leg work to get the balance for me when we moved...what I nice thing to do! Made it easy to know what we had to spend, Thanks Miwa!)

Kira read several books while Evan played with two little girls at the train table, she made her choice the minute she walked in the kids section and never looked back...not a book today. No, not this little Hannah Montana fan.




Once I was able to pry Evan away he found Max from Where the Wild things Are and replaced his torn up copy of the book with a new hardcover version.

Every once in a while you stumble onto an older MD like this -- I LOVE them. There used to be one in Lebanon, Indiana, but they redid it. I'll have to check this one out next time I'm in the Chicago suburbs.

I agree, that is a very cool McD's. I've never seen a retro one?

I wonder if the food was as bad back then as it is now?

Although, I have to admit, I was addicted to Big Macs at one point in my life.
