Happy Fat Tuesday! I’ve always wanted to go to New Orleans or Brazil and see the Mardi Gra celebrations. Never wanted to put up with all the drunks though, but the carnivals and parades all seem very celebratory. Especially the films I’ve seen in Brazil – those huge krewes and costumes and music!
Came across some interesting new sites yesterday. Thanks to striped Lisa for a link to Quick Movies in Bun-O-Vision. I would say that Lisa spends too much time on the internet, then look at the fact that I go to most of the sites she points at, plus my own list, and better not even mention computer time. But thanks for the links Lisa!
Oh, better do some pictures – some granddad, been too long without showing her off.
We took our son in law (still feels strange to put that down, I don’t feel old enough) out for his birthday this past weekend. We went to a nice Mexican place in Summerlin (the fancy new area in northwest Vegas) called Agave. It’s a very interesting building, in pinks and purples and oranges, shaped kind of like a big Mexican hat. The food is pretty good, and on the medium priced range. Total cost for four of us, with deserts but no fancy drinks was $75 (plus tip).
The interior is mostly a big round room, with a bar in the center and high ceiling with stars – the camera didn’t focus on the stars, guess it was too dark or something for the autofocus feature. Recipes had a little modern take on Mexican recipes, not the traditional food.
But Eli had a good time. She's ten months old now.
She always seems to be laughing and enjoying herself. Up to stage 3 foods now (bottled stuff with a little texture). And she really likes cheerios. She is in a high chair now, sitting up very nicely.
Grandma plays with her every day, but with my hours I don’t get home in time to see here at all.
