My family went out today and had a wonderful day out.  We left early this morning, rove a couple hours from home and spent the day with friends visiting castles. We planned a picnic lunch, but nothing for dinner.  The kids were so exhausted that the was no way I s going to make them sit through dinner at a restaurant, so we endedupmrunning through KFC on the way home.  

What do you usually do for dinner when you've been out all day? Do you plan ahead so you can eat dinner at home or plan dinner out as part of your day?

Passing out at the end of the day is a must!  I'm barely hanging on at the moment!

If I haven't planned ahead, we either pickup sandwiches or I make something quick and easy like pasta.

I either plan leftovers that are easy or we stop somewhere cheap. Tonight just got away from me and we got chili's. Except I am paying for how much dairy I consumed :(

We always plan eating out as part of our day. No way do i wanna stand around over a hot stove after being out and about the whole day.

Depends on where we are going and why...but mine are 10, 12, & 14...so it is part of our outing...whenever we go to the county zoo we also go to a close by Dave and Buster's for dinner since the older two are not as fond of the zoo anymore but our youngest lvves it.
