Anniversary Brunch & Ultrasound

Yesterday was our fourth wedding anniversary. And amazingly, it was the third one we've celebrated in Grenada! It's hard to believe we've spent 3/4 of our marriage in a foreign country. Unfortunately, the school does not recognize our anniversary as an official holiday, so Ryan had to attend class as usual and spent most of the evening in the library. But that is life, and we still found time to spend together, which is the most important thing.

The highlight of our day was getting to see our daughter on another ultrasound! Living on a medical school campus provides lots of opportunities for free ultrasounds, almost any time we want one. Yesterday, Ryan had arranged with one of the anatomy professors to use an ultrasound machine in the lab. Most students don't get to even see ultrasounds on pregnant patients until their clinical rotations. So the professor and a few friends were excited to see our baby. She was very active, probably because I had my glucose screening test earlier that morning and she was on a sugar high. But Ryan and the others were able to see excellent views of her heart, liver, spine, and other anatomical features that I can't even pronounce.

But the best part was that Ryan actually got to perform the ultrasound! It was his first time ever using an ultrasound machine, and he did great. We watched her little feet kicking and her arms moving all around up by her face. I love seeing how much she has grown in the past few weeks and seeing her personality start to show. We can't wait to meet her in just a couple months!

Instead of going out for dinner this year, we decided to try a new breakfast place this morning. We love going out for breakfast, but our previous favorite spot went out of business in December. We had heard great things about this restaurant, though, and were eager to give it a try. It's located next to a resort, under a pavilion next to a beautiful pool.

We began with glasses of freshly-squeezed passion fruit juice (which, by the way, is my absolute favorite juice here in Grenada). The menu contained so many delicious items that it was hard to narrow down our decision. But eventually we ordered spiced French toast with two flavored syrups, Eggs en Cocotte which came with sauteed potatoes and sausage, and a side of apple ricotta fritters. I also ordered a decaf latte, which was by far the best cup of coffee I have had in Grenada. It is nearly impossible to find a restaurant that serves decaf coffee, so this was a special treat.

The food tasted just as good as it looked. The service was incredible, which is extremely rare in Grenada. We loved being able to relax, talk, and enjoy amazing food. All in all, it was the perfect anniversary celebration. We will definitely be visiting this place again before we leave in May.
