The temperature today was the warmest we had while in Tempe. The evenings since we arrived were outright cold. B and I don't make the mistake of taking sunshine for granted, so I was happy to sit on Caffe Boa's patio.
It was good, but really not great. The eggs were on the dry side and I only have myself to blame for ordering salmon in the middle of the desert. Isabella's pancakes were better. I'm sure of this. Her mom and I had a bite.
Service was extremely slow, especially considering how few customers they had, but our server was very nice. As were most of our food experiences this weekend, the wonderful company made the experience. I hadn't seen Amy in almost three years and this was my first time meeting Isabella. She is a beautiful little girl who entertained us with her enthusiasm for her pancakes and her adorable little bursts of toddler-speak. I only wish I could have seen the whole family and spent more time with them.
We're happy to be home, but exhausted. As is true of any good vacation, it will be a couple of days before we really get back into our normal routine. I imagine we'll be settled back in just in time to leave for Portland Friday morning. So begins the holiday season!
