Eating out is one of my favourite things to do with the family. We do it quite often and here are a few things I ponder on.
I am mostly disappointed with kids menus. Fish and chips, nuggets and chips, margherita pizza, and pasta with napoli sauce? Why is this the standard? If I found a restaurant that offered an awesome kids menu, we would go there often.
We like the kids to order their own meals and make eye contact with the waiter. Jasmine does. Will and Imi are usually playing or getting into mischief, so miss the moment.
I always order a bowl of chips. I really just can’t resist them. And I feel happy if they are thick cut awesome chips. And then if I’m trying to be really good I won’t order the chips and then when walking back to the car I will say, “I can’t believe I didn’t order chips!” Dave will just nod or something.
Dave often wishes he ordered what I ordered.
Everytime a restaurant hands out a special “kids activity sheet”, I always dream about creating a “kids activity sheets for restaurants” business.
I don’t enjoy Eye Spy one little bit, but will happily play other kids games at the table such as hangman. With Eye Spy, I know that if I guess their item really quickly, they will change it in their mind and say, no, that’s not it.
Anyhow, after our last dinner at St Kilda beach we watched this glorious sunset before heading home. x
