Mexican Food . . . At a Restaurant!

Before we had the babies, Gary and I ate a lot of Mexican food. Our favorite restaurant is Amigo's Mexican Restaurant, which is not far from where we live. I remember eating there when I was about 17 weeks pregnant, and then again after we had the babies but before they came home from the hospital. On Sunday, Auntie Ann came over and we headed out to Amigo's again -- with the babies!

While we had chips, salsa, and queso, the babies started out their dinner with some flour tortillas.

For their main course, the babies had two cheese quesadillas. I had thought that surely two cheese quesadillas would be enough for three 10.5 month olds -- but we actually ran out! Next time we'll definitely have to get at least three quesadillas. Anyway, the babies LOVED their quesadillas. Piper enjoyed her quesadillas, but when she ran out of quesadillas, she not so politely slammed her hand down on her placemat until we gave her more. Henry ate slowly and savored every bite. But I think Rosemary loved the food the most. She smiled and ate and ate and ate, and then smiled some more. I don't think I've ever seen her eat that much. When I picked her up to leave, her little tummy was tight as a drum.

We were lucky to have our favorite waitress, and Rosemary liked her as much as Gary and I do. Rosemary couldn't take her eyes off of her whenever she was near.

Henry loved the food so much that he was actually eating his placemat once the quesadilla were gone. . . .

It was a great trip and a great time. The babies behaved perfectly, and we had a blast. We are definitely going to be heading out to Amigo's again soon.

Love it! The image of Piper banging the table for more food... totally cracked me up. That is great!
