Summer Vacation 2012 and Yummy Eating

This year, I took time off to be with my folks in Kerala and I had a great time traveling and spending time with my parents, my in laws, our extended families and so on. Also, for the first time in several years after marriage, I celebrated my birthday with my parents who were totally overjoyed because I hadn't done that in so many years. 


Here are some pics from the Summer Vacation 2012:


This photo is from our Ooty Trip. 





My 6 year old son Jyotiraditya thoroughly enjoyed acting his role of buttering toast during the usual breakfast buffet while I helped myself liberally to all that I shouldnt - pancakes with honey, strawberry milkshakes, puris, so on and so forth. I won't mention the fruit platter yet! :D


But the plate shown below is not mine, it is Adi's. He's got it a little messy but I'd rather have him taking it on his own and getting engaged with the process of eating than feed him like a baby. Now that Adi is growing up faster than before, I really want to see him eat without being fed or being fussed over. 



Adi liked having Sweet Corn Chicken Soup and Chilly Chicken for dinner. I always have to tell the chefs to make sure the chicken is not spicy because Adi has a very sensitive stomach. As you can guess, the last thing I want to deal with on a vacation trip is a stomach bug especially in summers. 



Thankfully, the food was delicious and the service was fantastic. So I have no complaints on that side. We enjoyed our holiday vacations visiting new places we hadn't gone to before and of course, sampling all the delicious food that was on offer for us.
