An Extended Weekend of Family Fun

Friday night we went to dinner at Il Fornaio after my son’s basketball practice. I had the Insalata Del Fornaio (mixed greens, garlic croutons and shaved Grana Padano, house vinaigrette):

I also ordered the small portion of Tagliatelle alla Bolognese (pasta ribbons with traditional meat ragu and Grana Padano):

Breakfast Saturday morning:

We took my son to flag football practice then we all went to Sea World afterwards. We went with a group that my husband belongs to and they had set up a fabulous day for us. When we arrived, we were able to get up close with the dolphins.

That was so much fun!! Definitely once in a lifetime. 

I was hungry and lunch wasn’t for awhile so I ate half of a hot dog.

Eventually it was time for our group to meet for lunch. We ate at the “Dine with Shamu” restaurant. We enjoyed a buffet lunch.

The best part was watching the killer whales up close!

Such a fun day at Sea World. I hadn’t been in years!

We picked up Brett’s BBQ for dinner. I had a half rack of baby back ribs, sweet potato fries and cole slaw.

Lunch was a turkey sandwich and some random chips that were in my pantry.

I packed everyone up and we headed to Pelican Hill for a couple of days. The kids were off school today and Monday so we decided to go on a little vacation. My mom and some of Dave’s family joined us as well. 

Dinner Sunday night was at Javier’s. We shared guacamole:

We enjoyed a beautiful day at the pool. My lunch was a cobb salad that was delicious.

That night our whole group went to The Yard House for dinner. Our table shared Buffalo Hot Wings and Chicken Garlic Noodles to start. Both were pretty good.

I decided to order the “Spicy Tuna Roll”. It was explained to me that it wasn’t like a standard roll, it was all stacked.

Too bad it was awful. SO salty. Ugh. I couldn’t eat it. Fortunately, they were nice enough to take it off the bill. Bleh.

This morning we did the room service thing again. I split Eggs Benedict with my mom.

We went back to the pool for a few hours. I ordered the fish tacos and sweet potato fries for lunch.

After lunch, we drove home. It’s back to normal life tomorrow!

 When was the last time you had to send something back at a restaurant?
