Q: When is a piece of fish worth $34?

A: When it is the Chilean Sea Bass served at the Ama Lur restaraunt at the Gaylord Texan.

Oh.My.Goodness. It was so insanely good. So was Eric's steak. And the sundried tomato/goat cheese flatbread appetizer. And the chocolate/ancho chile cheesecake. (And the incredibly strong margaritas.) Seriously. If you are ever near the Gaylord Texan, go eat at this restaraunt. You will gladly kiss your money goodbye.

Eric and I were able to get away this weekend for an early anniversary celebration. My parents kept Eli and we enjoyed a gloriously kid-free, relaxing, romantic weekend together. The Gaylord Texan is really an amazing place, and sleeping in until 9am without a toddler climbing all over the place was amazing too. :)

We were, of course, super-happy to see Eli again. This kid is the light of our lives. He cracks us up with his high-energy antics. To add to his slew of animal impressions, he now knows "What does the Indian say?" He pats his mouth with his open hand while making continuous noise, a-la an Indian. It's adorable, even if it's not exactly an animal sound. :)

I hope you guys all had a good weekend too!
