June 2010 Family Vacation Day 5

View our Family Portraits with my Dad




Our last full day with my father. It did not turn out exactly how we wanted it, but it was still ok. A long day at that.
The boys spent some private time with my father while we finished washing a few more items before our next road trip. While we were out we ate at a local Mexican restaurant called La Fiesta. Let me just say this place had food that reminded me of home. Not Mobile, AL people. I am talking about Denver, CO.I had a tamale, chicken enchilada, refried beans, and Spanish rice. Oh and of course I had to get a small thing of guacamole cause I love adding that to everything Mexican pretty much. Ernest had beef fajita with refried beans, Spanish rice, and guacamole salad. They had such good food that wouldn’t mind going back to it if we come back to Salina, KS. We even had a very nice waitress. Not the best, but she made she we were taken care of.

We wanted to go earlier to take pictures with the boys and my dad, plus dad wanted to try the cooking that my Aunt Gertrude had been bragging about. Originally we were going to barbecue and Ernest just wasn’t into it. So we decided on red beans and a pork roast. But I was lazy and wanted a nap so we got started way too late. It was around 5pm before we even left the house. Around 7pm by the time pictures were taken. And most of the dinner wasn’t even done until like midnight. The roast still needed to cook a lot longer so we just ate the red beans made with ham hocks and Conecuh sausage. Ernest also made homemade cornbread that was totally off the chain. It was light, fluffy and not sweet either. I am just glad that dad and Uncle Herman enjoyed what we fixed for them. They couldn’t stop giving praise. Even went so far as to telling me and Ernest that we needed to open our own restaurant. That made me, and I think Ernest too, feel real good.

Once everyone ate we were too full for anything else and just went to bed. The end of our last day with dad.
