A couple of days ago we (Christina, me, my mum and dad and Micah) were able to all go out to Giordano’s and have a sit down dinner. It’s been a while since we went out to a restaurant and I wasn’t sure if Micah would cooperate. It’s hard enough sitting down for dinner at home, so I wasn’t sure that eating out would be any different.

Just to make sure, I called them up ahead of time to find out if it was cool if we brought in a little infant to dinner with us. The lady on the other end told was pretty reassuring and told me that me it was totally fine to bring in our baby.

Turns out it wasn’t so bad. We only got there around 9pm and the big dinner crowd had cleared out by then. Micah was happy to be in his car seat in the beginning and then when he got a little fidgety, I just carried him and rocked him to sleep. The pizza was pretty good as well. We had some cheezy garlic bread as an appetizer and two 10inch pizzas, one thin crust and the other stuffed Chicago style. We were there for at least a couple of hours before Micah started to fuss for real, at which point we had pretty much eaten out fill, so we just headed home. All in all, a pretty good experience for Micah’s first time out at a restaurant.

We forgot to take a picture of the pizza when it was served, so here are some pics of the leftovers…
