April Restaurant pick

Each month this year we are trying out restaurants we have never been to before.  This month, we asked the Petersons for a suggestion and this is where they had been that we had not.

We ordered artichoke and spinach dip for an appetizer.  Mmmmm!

The Petersons ordered the lasagna rustica,

and we ordered the cannelloni bianco. 

Allen and I almost always split a meal and the Petersons do the sameRestaurants these days have such large portionsWe found this one of a kind restaurant to be very delicious and reasonably priced!!  Thank you, Leroy and Ellen for the suggestion!  We enjoyed the great company and the conversation!!

We'll be looking to invite another couple in May and another "new" place to venture to!

Jill asked if I would like to go along with her and the girls to the Botanica to help her out.  It was homeschooler's day.  It was such a beautiful day to go!

Luckily they had lots of benches around for tired, pregnant mommies!

We took the girls to Jimmy's Diner for lunch.  They had never been there before.  The girls love the American Girls' storybooks and we discussed that this restaurant is a '50's diner and like the ones Molly, the American Girl from that era would have eaten in.  They loved the poodle skirts that the waitresses wore.  And they LOVED the shakes and ice-cream we got!!!

Going on a walk

The girls were over today. It is so easy for them to want to play or watch a DVD. But when it is so nice outside, it is so much better for us to go for a walk! I take my camera along and the girls take many of the photos.

The neighbor's sprinklers were going off and the girls had so much fun standing as close as they could so they would get showered on.

Looking for a bird's nest in the tree.
They were on the search for a duck-billed platypus.
They were sure it lived here.

When we got back home, Papa took them on bike rides in front of our home.

A very fun morning in the fresh air! Unfortunately, there were a few sneezes too. Lots of pollen in the air. Aah choo!!
