Gotta love winter in Tel Aviv...




Taken this afternoon... We woke up this morning to a beautiful day, so we decided to go in to Tel Aviv for breakfast and some biking/rollerblading on the promenade along the beach. We'd planned to head for our favorite breakfast place - a French bistro which has killer chocolate crepes that my children adore, but it was closed for a private function. To stave off the impending meltdown disappointment I had to quickly promise we'd find a place with hot chocolate instead. We ended up at a little place we'd just read about that was known for "breakfast couscous" of all things. Jay and I split that and a panini (sandwich) with goat cheese and pears. The couscous wasn't bad, it was served with hot milk, walnuts, dates and cinnamon and was basically a not all that exciting hot cereal. The sandwich was a lot more interesting. Itai was pretty well pleased with his French toast and all was right in Maya's world as soon as she got her chocolate milk. After we finished breakfast we headed around the corner to Rabin Square for the wheeled portion of our day's entertainment. The kids rode around, chased pigeons, and fell on their butt more than a few times. In other words, a great time was had by all. Maya even fell asleep on the way home, which she only does if she's REALLY tuckered out.
We came home and watched Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (again. 3rd time this weekend, not that I'm counting... Itai's obsessed, and he knows it has to be returned tomorrow morning so he's trying to get as much in as possible.) It's now 5:30pm and Maya's just woken up. Must dash...
Hope everyone else out there is having a great weekend.
