We had a very relaxing weekend. We didn't do much of anything, and it was actually really nice. Saturday and Sunday were full of baking. I made several batches of brownies, and a batch of everything bagels. On Saturday night, we decided to make a trip to "The Common Man." It's a restaurant in New Hampshire, where Kevin's family used to eat when they vacationed in Waterville Valley, NH. Now, the restaurant is a franchise, and there just happens to be one about 40 minutes from our house. Anyway, we had such a nice time at dinner, and Maya was on her very best behavior. After dinner, instead of giving mints or fortune cookies, "The Common Man" gives you a scoop of white chocolate shavings on a plate. Maya went nuts for the chocolate. She fed some to me, some to Kevin, and of course, some to herself. I have to admit - I hate white chocolate, but I'd eat just about anything if my little girl wants to feed it to me!
"Mommy put my hair in pigtails on Saturday. It's been so long since I've worn them, and I was very pleased with my hair."
"Mommy made strawberry cheesecake brownies. I liked them, even though I don't usually like cheese."
"Of course, the peanut butter chocolate chip brownies were better. Obviously."
"Daddy and I plowed our way through 4 bagels on Saturday morning. Thanks, Mom!"
"Mommy gave me white chocolate, and I loved it!"
"I fed some to Mommy, too, but she was just medium about it."
