Hidden Treasure

Tonight I got a great treat for the night-before-my-Birthday dinner. My in-laws came over to surprise me with a yummy chocolate cake and to baby sit so that my sweet Husband could whisk me away for a dinner out, just the two of us. We went to a restaurant we’ve driven past a million times and talked about going to as often. Tonight we did, and man! It was good! Talk about a hidden treasure! We wasted almost 7 years of driving past when we could have been eating here all the while???

The name of the restaurant is Omar Al-Khyam 354 Sunset Blvd N, Renton, WA 98057 Cross Streets: Between Houser Way Bypass/Sunset Blvd NE and N 3rd St (425) 271-8300 It is a small restaurant Family owned and operated. It’s been here for 30 years!!

As we arrived it was a slow part of the evening we walked in to a very friendly greeting by our waitress, Miss Leila. In the kitchen was her big brother, she has 6 big brothers. The menu has a great selection of yummy Middle Eastern cuisine. We ordered some hummus, which was to die for. I could eat this for breakfast! It had a large fluffy dollop of whipped garlic in the center over olive oil and served with 2 warm pitas… Mmmmmm So gooood. I also ordered a salad and ice tea, John had a lemon aid with rose water and the soup: Chicken Curry. All I can say is yum yum and yum.

For our entree we both ordered the same Lamb Shish Kabab with sautéed tomatoes and onions. The lamb was… perfect. The portions were huge. What can I say other than I feel dumb for driving past so many times… We will most definitely be back to this new found Gem!

If you are in the area I highly suggest trying this restaurant. Great staff, great food, and fantastic leftovers!!

This little man is my baby in training. He gave me the greatest honor of changing my life and title forever. He made me Mom. He made me important.

It has been a short four years that have blurred past of sword fights, super heroes and laughs.

Johnpaul is a Big Brother ask any one he doesn't take his title lightly.

One of my most favorite of many amazing attributes of Johnpaul is his idea of Honor Love and Family. He is a awesome little boy. I look forward in watching him grow.

Born November 21st 2007 He's my Determined Problem Solver
This guy was worry from within the whom. At week 15 I started to bleed. We were loosing him. It was that day this sweet one even before breathing air taught me one of my most precious life lessons.. patience.

Before I had little but while pregnant with him I was on strict bed rest for 172 days. I was more than worth it.

My image of him was he was the most Determined person.. boy was I right. He will because of this be anything he wants. Greatness is in his future.

Nathaniel is loving, sweet and considerate. He can melt your worst day with his smile.

My sweet baby Christian Michael

This little love. He's my last but in no where my least. He was not planned but was very welcome. He was an Anniversary Gift the best kind ever. Christian doesn't talk yet or walk but I can already tell he's a big thinker.

He is always watching. I can't wait to see how his personality unfolds... but at the same time hope he takes his sweet time. He is my baby, my last and I'd like to keep him sdmall for a bit ;o)
