I took Miss Alli and Erika to the Russian Deli, located in Dallas. They had so much fun! Alli couldn't believe there was such a store with all her favorite foods, so close to home!
She picked out all this:
Here is a picture of her eating the stuffed roll from my cell phone. : I remember having this when we were in Ukraine. I believe they are called Perogis.We stopped at a roadside bakery and picked some up. Oh they were delicious! I would have had one, had it not been for the gluten. :/
I have never seen a child so excited about food. LOL On the way home she called Daddy and told him all about it, and then she said, "Mommy, I never dreamed a mama would do something so nice for me. "
Made me want to cry.
I am THRILLED she had such a great time and that it was such a positive surprise for her.
The man at the Deli spoke to her in Russian, but she couldn't remember any. :( We are working on it with Rosetta Stone. However, Erika surprised me and actually answered something back in Russian .... the man said, "Very good!" :) Yea for Rosetta Stone. :)
On Monday, Erika, Sarah and I plan to go to Out on a Limb Camp. Anna, Alli and Daddy will be on their own for the week. :) Daddy has already arranged for our friends from Russia to come over and cook a Russian meal. Smart daddy! LOL
