Red Lobster

We went to Red Lobster tonight. For those that don't know us well -- we LOVE Red Lobster. We go there for every occassion. But, we've only been there once since Mara was born, and this was Mara's first time there! Sadly, I'm a bad mommy, and forgot my camera! Obviously, I love to document EVERYTHING with pictures, but, no pictures from Red Lobster. She even sat in a high chair for the first time there! (Well, she has used our high chair at home, and one at daycare, but never at a restaurant!). She looked so cute sitting there too. She was a pretty good girl, she sat ok for awhile, then we held her for a bit, and she sat in the highchair again. She grabbed my salad when I accidentally let her get too close, but otherwise it was a pretty uneventful dinner. Thanks to Uncle Larry, we had some gift cards, so that made it even better!! Mara checked out the lobster tank when we left, and giggled at the hostess when she said hello. She seemed to enjoy watching all the people, and checking out everything around her (can you tell we don't eat out much lately?) I did take a picture when we got home...she fell asleep in the car, and woke up in a smiley mood. I'll just have to remember to bring my camera on her SECOND trip to Red Lobster I guess...

I would be a happy camper if I got to go to Red Lobster too! Such a smiley baby!

I had a coupon I was going to give you for $4.00 off. I didn't know you were going tonight or maybe I would have remembered. Glad you had a nice time.

What? You mean you didn't give Mara a cheesy biscuit??!!?!!!?? O.k., I know she's only like 6 months old, but seriously...she would have LOVED it! Forget the darn peaches, give her a delicious cheesy biscuit! =-)

One of the times we took Steven to a restaurant when he was around 10 months old was a hilarious (now) disaster. I don't know what Nate was thinking, but he put his beer too close to him. Naturally Steven grabbed it and dumped it ALL over. The poor waiter just stared at the mess and decided to move us one table over. What does my darling husband do now? He puts my water glass just within reach of grasping fingers. The water went down, spilling it everywhere. We wiped the water up. Just as we settle down to eat, Nate, ONCE AGAIN (!!!!) let Steven get too close to the food. A whole plate of food went flying to the floor. Needless to say, we left a VERY generous tip.
Thankfully, your Red Lobster trip was much less eventful!
