Next, my wonderful husband went to a local bakery to buy some treats for breakfast. He went looking for chocolate filled croissants and came back with mini pizzas, which were a hit with all of us.
In the afternoon, I was treated to lunch at a taverna. It was wonderful. During lunch we realized that we have only been out for a nice meal twice since we've been here, just the five of us. We had such a nice time we're definitely going to make more time for eating out.
The food was fantastic! We ordered our favorites including glosa(flounder), calamari, grilled octopus, florinis and more. Izabella ordered souvlaki but ended up eating more fish anyway. Both Foti and Alexandra loved the fish and the fries(of course the fries!). We even got Foti to try octopus again and he couldn't get enough. It was really, really delicious.
We've also remembered to always have our portable high chair in the car since very few restaurants here have accommodations for babies and toddlers. Having a chair for Alexandra to sit always makes our meals a little more enjoyable.
After dinner, we drove to a bakery to pick up a cake since MIL & SIL would be stopping by. I wish that I had taken pictures of the cake. It was chocolate topped with a strawberry glaze-just gorgeous.
And, if there's anything that I want for Mother's Day it's a picture of me and the kids. That's it. Since I'm usually the one with the camera I rarely get in any pictures myself. So, on Mother's Day I make it a point to have the kids dressed a little better so that we can have our picture taken. Kosta loves to take the pictures...but I can tell that he just wants to get it over with. Not a photographer...an engineer. Anyway, he did a great job and took a lot of great pictures. Here we are on Mother's Day...Although that picture is nice, the one below is one of my favorites. It's the real deal. The picture was taken as we were trying to get ready for a "perfect" shot. This one is perfect in my eyes.
I had a wonderful, wonderful day. The kids were extra good, we had great food and the weather was great. We only had a sprinkling of rain that passed quickly while we had our lunch. Perfect. I'm lucky to be a mother and I'm thankful that my husband made the day so special for us. Thank you Kosta!
