Last weekend Eric had a dental convention that he wanted to go to. So I thought it would fun for the children and I to tag along and play while he spent all day sitting in classes. We went to the museum, the zoo, and the Saturday Market. He brought along his whole staff to, as they all had classes they could take as well. The hotel we stayed in was beautiful. It was over 100 years old and has been remodeled/refinished and was breathtaking. It’s the same hotel that his staff has stayed in every year for this convention, so that’s how the children and I landed in such a fabulous place to rest our heads that weekend.
I brought along my babysitter, which was quite a treat for me. She spent the days helping me keep track of 6 very energetic children, and in the evenings, she stayed at the hotel and fed them dinner we had ordered in and put them to bed while I went out with Eric for dinner. The first night we went out with his staff to a Thai restaurant, and the next night we met up with some friends from dental school for dinner at an Italian restaurant. The Thai place was good, however, I am a whimp when it comes to anything with any remote amount of spiciness. The flavors were delicious, but to spicy for me. Eric loved it though. Which was funny, because I have been wanting to go out for Thai with him for about a year, but he was never interested.
The second night out was my favorite. It was such a treat to see our friends and to spend the whole evening catching up over the last year since graduation. The restaurant was lovely and the meal delicious! And best of all, we came back to 6 children all in bed!

I think he’s licking leftover juice from his juice box off his coat.
