Quite a day... (and a long post)

Yesterday was, well..."Quite the day." And I do mean that in only the best sense of the statement.

First I got to hang out with a bug expert and artist extraordinaire. Haven is her name and she is one of the smartest going into 2nd graders I've ever met. And she's cute to boot. Anyway, she told me all about the bugs that she has at home (like praying mantises and their egg sacks - gross if you ask me) and then all the plastic bugs she was playing with in the office. She decided to draw pictures from the bugs view and then put the plastic creatures on the pictures so I could see just how they lived. It was all quite educational.

Here is the little artist at work

This is Haven.

Oh, I am so glad these are plastic!

After work (yes, that was hard work folks. Do you know how much I don't like bugs?) Andrew and I went downtown so I could introduce him to my favorite place to get grilled fish taco's. Yum!

The restaurant is called Peppino's. It's a great little restaurant nestled into the middle of 23rd street that is just too fun to eat at 'cause it's got indoor and outdoor seating, the food is fabulous and cheap and it's fun and colorful inside. Oh and try and find the wobbly table, that always makes any meal a little more exciting. Can you tell I like my taco's?

Then we headed over to Mia Gelato's (well, after walking up and down and in and out of pretty much every shop that was open, which wasn't that many surprisingly) and had a little taste of Europe. Oh how I loves me some gelato! I mean, it's just so dang delicious and always tastes exactly like what they say it is. Yeah, I know that sounds weird, but it's not like regular ice cream and if you've ever eatin gelato then you know what I'm talkin' about. It's always so hard to choose between all the fabulous flavor's they offer, which leads me to another reason why I love gelato so much. They encourage you to taste, taste, taste them all. I love people and places like that. That should not come as a surprise if you know me at all. I'm a taster and a nibbler. Hmmm...that was totally beside the point. Coming back to gelato. Yes, Andrew, I'll stop rambling and get to the point. :) I had their cinnamon (oh my gosh it was SO GOOD!) and Andrew had their peach sorbetto. It was quite tasty as well, especially when I took a little bit of his and meshed it with a little bit of mine. Wow, dare I say it was a little taste of heaven? Hello, cinnamon and fruit!

ANYWAY, it was a great day and evening and I just had to share all the wonderful things I enjoyed with you, my few and faithful readers. :)

I'll leave you with this fun picture. :)
