Today our friends left and now the house is suddenly so quiet. We had a fun relaxing time. Daughter was very upset when they left. In fact so much so that she started to shed buckets of tears since morning. Our friends have 2 kids, a 9 year old boy and a 4 year old girl. Daughter being 6 was right in the middle and thus gelled with both of them very well. They slept together both the nights. And Daughter being the very gentle and almost always the big sister type reassured us that she would take good care of the little one as it was her first time sleeping without her mommy. And that she did !!
The highlight of yesterday was going to a Lebanese restaurant in downtown Pittsburgh. This restaurant was featured in Food Network’s show Diner Drive ins and Dives. We had been craving to go there for a while and yesterday was the perfect opportunity. It was really one of the best restaurants we have tried in quite a while. The food was just awesome. If you are in the vicinity and eat non vegetarian food, try their kebobs on a bed of basmati rice. Mmmm the meat is succulent and juicy, cooked to perfection and has the perfect char broiled taste. The price is good and the service just excellent.
At night the kids decided to sleep in a tent and do pretend camping 🙂 . We watched a movie and ended a perfect day with a glass of wine and some good conversation. Today the weather decided to betray us with snow and rain. The kind where the last thing you want to do is make a 4 hour trip. So I made a quick lunch and by 1 they were on their way back. We took a nap after they left. As I sit and type now, Daughter is doing some Technology homework and the hubby is reading a book. Daughter has tomorrow off and we are trying to convince the hubby to take the day off too without much luck. I think it’s time to put some more effort into hubby now 😉 .
That was a sneak peek at our weekend. So tell me, what did you guys do ??
