Birthday Breakfast & Dead Lobster

Just a quick post today to give an update. Finally, we've gotten a chance to visit family - after almost 3 months of being away. We headed down yesterday after Lucas got off of work. What an interesting experience that was! The roads were AWEFUL - cars & trucks spun off into the ditch every 50 feet or so on both sides of the highway. I've never seen so many flashing lights, between all the tow trucks and police cars. At one point, a car that was FLYING up behind us, on its way to pass us, lost control about 50 feet behind us, spun around who-knows-how-many times, and stopped facing into the oncoming traffic. To put it mildly, I was glad he hadn't gotten any closer to us before he lost control of his car. Thankfully, once we got a little ways past the state border, the roads cleared up & it was back to normal traveling. But what should have taken 2 1/2 hours took 3 1/2. Oh well, at least we arrived safely.

After staying up way past my bedtime to visit last night, we all got up this morning & headed to Bob Evans for breakfast - even Shane got up & went with us, which was nice! Then later this afternoon we headed to Red Lobster for a birthday dinner. Two meals I didn't have to cook in one day!!! That was a great birthday gift!

One funny thing Isaac said at dinner, I think is worth mentioning. We were trying to decide which appetizers to order, and someone suggested Lobster Pizza. Isaac didn't miss a beat, and he said, "Mom, does Lobster Pizza have dead lobster on it? And lobster butts?" I didn't know what to say - it was such a funny question! I had to be honest - "Yes, honey, it has dead lobster on it. And maybe lobster tail, but no lobster butts." "Okay," he says, "then I'll try it." What a cutie. I think I'll keep him!

Okay, off to lounge around on the couch for the rest of the night, trying to sleep off all this food!

You forgot to mention that Isaac single handed ate 8 mozzarella sticks and a basket of popcorn shrimp and fries along with some lobster pizza with dead lobster on it. That's our boy!! He sure does enjoy life!!

Sorry we missed your birthday dinner. Brandon had to work as usual. Sometimes his schedule makes it really hard to do stuff. Carmen would have loved to see the kids. Happy late birthday. Maybe we can plan something sometime were we can meet somewhere halfway and do something. Tell everyone hi.
