When we arrived there were fresh homemade cookies and chips for snacks on the back porch, then on Sunday evening there was some delicious butter gooey cake on the back porch for us to enjoy. Breakfast on Monday morning was delicious - apple pancakes, sausage, and a cheesy potato casserole along with some fresh fruit. (I tried kiwi- did NOT like it.) Sunday evening we decided to eat Babe's Chicken on the square. Everyone raves about Babe's and neither of us had ever been. It was okay, but not anywhere near the best fried chicken I've ever had. Their mashed potatoes were instant, for crying out loud! So the meal was just so-so, but the company was excellent. After dinner we drove over by the lake and went for a walk during sunset. We walked all the way down to the end of the pier and then I suggested we jog back, which we did. In hindsight that wasn't the best idea since we had literally just left the restaurant, but it was still kind of fun.
Monday we walked around the square and spent some money at the little shops down there. Nick bought me a cute bracelet I spotted, and we bought a few things for Kate. The weather was absolutely gorgeous and we were happy to be outside. We had Ayala's Mexican food for lunch on the balcony. Nick ordered his standard tamales and I tried the shrimp ceviche, which was really good. Eventually it was time to head back to reality but for 24 hours or so we definitely enjoyed just being in each other's presence with no kiddo to worry about. We knew she was in good hands at Yia-yia's house. I don't even think Kate missed us, actually.
