My mother and I loved too eat out at our favorite restaurant Jose Peppers. Her favorite foods that were a big favorite was: Shrimp tacos and the Pollo Magnifico. Especially the Espinaca and salsa as the appetizers. Occasionally she would sneak a bite of food when she thought I wasn't looking. We'd always laugh when I'd catch her, sometimes laugh a little to much. When I was younger, she would draw and play the games on the children's place mat that the waiter or waitress would give me. But as I grew older, I began to start carrying my art supplies. Mom would still draw with me while we waited for our food. We would watch funny dog videos on my phone while we ate. Luckily we were always given our own private seating away from the public, so we could be ourselves. This is one of many wonderful memories I have of my Mother and I.
