We had a great time with our visitors this weekend!!
I didn’t touch my DSLR all weekend, but here are the highlights from my phone!
Friday night pizza party!! We ordered from Belmont and made salads on the side.
Saturday we packed in a full day for Mazen – visits to the Discovery Museum, toy store and bakery.
For lunch we hit up Bodos where I had this delicious smoked salmon and cream cheese bagel. I have big honkin’ bagels like this only a few times a year, and they are so good! Next time I should add a leaf of lettuce for a bit more nutrition : ) But my bagel was whole wheat!
Saturday night we had grand plans to go to World of Beer. My dad won a gift certificate when we went to Homebrew For Hunger last year. Mazen, however, after skipping his nap, was totally melting down. We just couldn’t see taking a toddler there, so mom and I stayed back with him and put him to bed early, and Kanz and dad went on to the restaurant, had a glorious time, and brought us back our dinners. We were more than happy with the room service.
Mom and I opened a bottle of Thomas George Estates wine from Sonoma while we chilled at home.
The food was worth the wait! I had grilled salmon, delicious potatoes with crispy pork and succotash.
Breakfast the next morning was fresh fruit and a few bagels we brought home from Bodos. I have started eating mango like I eat watermelon – bite off the “rind.” A trick I brought home from the DR!
We hung out in our jammies most of the morning and got a head start on Sunday chores. Lunch was leftover flatbread the guys brought back from WOB the night before, salad and cheese. Marcona almonds on the salad – so buttery!
We love our visits from G+P and hope they come back soon!! Mazen especially : )
