Lupe Tortilla with the Stricklins

We enjoyed another great dinner at Lupe's with the Stricklins last night. As always, the kids ate their dinners, picked their ice cream from the big cooler (which is now under lock and key - they must have had some ice cream disappear in the last few months), and then retired to the sandbox while the grown-ups ate dinner.

We snagged our usual table in the bar area right next to the sandbox so we could keep an eye on the kids. We missed having Sam there, but he has been spending the week with his grandmother enjoying some one-on-one time with her. Olivia, Abby and McIver took their own bowl of chips to the rail to watch the other kids play while they waited for their supper.

We didn't actually hear them discuss it, but there seemed to be some sort of contest to see who could be the messiest when eating the ice cream. The girls just managed to have lots of ice cream drip down the front of their shirts and into their laps.
McIver may have won b/c of this move - putting the racecar popsicle behind his head resulted in ice cream in his hair. After icecream, the girls got busy building a bridge along one of the benches. Good this Wednesday isn't too busy of a night - no one needed the seats.
