More Adventures (April 26)

First of all--I don't know what the deal is with the date that is posted on the seems like everything says April 21. So, I'm going to start posting the date in the title.

For lunch today, we went to a little store called Culinaria. It has a small patio in the back with a lawn and a small playset. The people are very nice and don't mind if you hang out for a while. I bought a yummy salad with olives, cherry tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, and olive oil. The boys each got a drink and ate sandwiches and oranges we had brought from our kitchen. It was especially nice for Max to have more area to run around and burn off some energy. The only problem is that there aren't any trees, so there is very little shade. I put a sheet down under the slide and that was where Miranda hung out and played!

Rachel--this was when I was trying to call you!After Culinaria, we walked home and while Miranda napped, the boys and I read and had a little "rest time." We then got Miranda back in the Moby wrap and headed out to find Deliciosa--to try some excellent chocolate as recommended to us by my fellow St.Louisan/blogger/adoptive mom, Katie Mohr. Katie: this picture is for you. We will DEFINITELY go back for more chocolate!

We then walked back to our hotel via El Arco, the street with the famous yellow arch. Along the way we stopped at a textile market and took some pictures. We're getting a lot of walking in while we are here in Antigua. I enjoy it, but have to tune out the boys when they are complaining about how tired they are. Doesn't Mitchell look like he's having a GREAT time!!!??Tomorrow we have to make another trip to La Bodegona (the grocery store), go to the ATM, and I promised the boys that we could go to McDonald's. If we get all of that done, it will be a successful day! The McDonald's here is crazy nice...a beautiful courtyard. I'll definitely get pictures for you to see!

I'm SO homesick for some dark chocolate toffee! This pains me! I'm so glad you experienced it too!!!

Sounds like a wonderful day.
The textiles are so beautiful.
Very nice photos.
Wish I was there...not just for the chocolate, although that looked yummy.
Love to all,
