We had a great first night of summer. We took the children to Algusto, a GREAT Mexican restaurant in Tampa, FL on Kennedy Avenue. They do not cook with lard but use olive oil instead. You could taste the difference. We had to splurge on the white cheese dip, and it was some of the best we've ever had!! DH & I love to share fajitas, so we did that. The children loved their burrito, quesadilla, and chicken soft taco. It was just what the doctor ordered!
Afterwards we stopped by the home of some dear friends here. Their 3 children are the ages of our 5, and the children have become fast friends. Our D was in tears that she would not see their E for a month because of opposite travel schedules. We stopped by in hopes of inviting E or E & her family for ice cream. The children enjoyed running through their grass, just as you should on a cool summer evening. Then we all met at Coldstone Creamery for ice cream. For just $1.69 the children each had their own kiddie scoop of ice cream and it proved to be more than enough!! We had a fun time watching the children giggle and drip ice cream everywhere, while J & I tried to sneak in a conversation. Our husbands enjoyed uninterrupted conversations:) while we tamed the crowd!!
We drove home for bath and bedtime, and everyone quickly fell asleep. We are thankful for the perfect kickoff to a great summer!!!
