…on a weekend getaway with Grandma (Lola) and Mommy!
A few weekends ago, Little One and I went on a mini “trip” with my Mom. We spent the night at a hotel in the “closest big city” to us. We did our Christmas shopping, ate at some really great restaurants, and had some good Toddler-Grandma-Mommy bonding time.
This was Little One’s first time sleeping in a hotel!
Little One was watching Lola brush her teeth and all of a sudden, put the ice bucket on her head like a hat. I don’t know what possessed her, but she entertained herself for a long time.
Supper at Red Lobster’s…only because I was craving Red Lobster’s!
The hotel offered a continental breakfast. We could have eaten in the hotel restaurant or ordered room service, but we opted for the continental breakfast. I was expecting the usual stale muffins and watered down juice. To my surprise, the hotel had a really cool waffle maker, eggs, muffins, several types of cereal, bagels, a juice bar, etc.
We ended up going to Umai Sushi for lunch after our shopping spree. The one thing I miss now that I’ve been living on the Island is having access to many different kinds of restaurants and having “ethnic cuisine”. I miss Japanese food, so Mom and I decided we’d go for Japanese at lunch.
Everything was DELICIOUS. Mom (Lola) really wanted tempura.
Little One ate some food from my bento, but she also had this soup all to herself!
She also had some of my miso soup. Mmmmm! We LOVE miso soup!
It was a lot of fun. It was a nice, refreshing weekend away. We had lots of fun with Lola!
