Family Adventure - The Mayan

(Holy crappy picture! Sorry! I didn't take it! But it gives the general idea for those that don't know what the cliffs, waterfall, and trees are like there.)

We took our family adventure a little early this week again. We went to the Mayan Restaurant. When we bought our car last year we received free meal coupons and they were expiring soon so we thought we would use them. Since I had 10 of them we invited our friends to go with us.

This really turned out to be quite the adventure too. It started with Dude's baseball game at the park. My hubby got stuck in traffic and wasn't going to make it to the game. Not a big deal he planned on meeting us at the park with our friends so we could just head out from there. Oops! I forgot Princess' insulin. KIND OF need it! So my hubby ran back home while Cherie (my friend) all the kids and I headed to the restaurant.

We got a table that has 9 chairs crammed up to 2 TINY tables. There was NO way we were all going to fit. We had 5 kids there for heaven's sake. So I asked the waiter if we could move to a different table. He told me NO! I wasn't happy. We finally got him to move over another table to ours so we would have more room. This was just the beginning of an interesting evening.

When they started the cliff diving show we had to move away from the table to see around the big tree. Everyone got up and moved, but I found a spot close to our table. I was standing there with Little Man watching the show. When some RANDOM lady walks up next to our table to watch the show. She plops down her purse and started to take pictures. No biggie. Until I watched her turn to the basket of chips on OUR table and helped herself to some!! She even dipped it in our dip!!! REALLY! I looked at her and said in a rude sarcastic way "Hey! Why don't you help yourself to our chips and dip! GEEZE!" She just looked at me like I WAS THE CRAZY ONE and said "Oh sorry." I couldn't believe it! Who has the nerve? Even if we were done WHO walks up to an empty table and eats off someones plate? Not only that EVERY TABLE gets the complimentary chips and dip. SHE HAD HER OWN AT HER OWN TABLE! I was in shock! It provided laughs for the rest of the evening, but I still can't believe it!

So even though there were a few hiccups in the evening it will still be a night that I will never forget! That is what this is all about anyway right?

That's so crazy. I'd have told her "Help yourself...but I hope you've had your swine flu immunization" or something like that.

Holy Cow I can't believe someone would have the nerve to do something like that. That is so crazy.

I like how Holly said I hope you've had your swine flu immunization. That was to funny.
