We had such fun taking the younger two girls out to eat last night. Two things were particularly funny.
1. We had been telling Lauryn (aged 4) on the way to Red Lobster that they had yummy rolls. I didn't tell her this, but a few months back I had done an internet search for a copy-cat recipe for the yummy cheddar bay biscuits from Red Lobster. When the waitress brought our drinks and rolls to us, she finally got to try out these rolls. She bit into it, chewed, and then looked at me with a look of complete surprise.
"Mommy, you make rolls like these at home!"
Guess my copy-cat recipe is pretty good!
2. Kelly and I both ordered the coconut shrimp, which comes with a pina colada sauce (anyone know how to get the enya to show up over the "n"?). Kelly, being a typical dad, has to let Ashlynn try some of the sauce. He does this with everything - ice cream, ketchup, even picante sauce, which Ashlynn loves! Well, the pina colada sauce was a hit! She kept opening her mouth for more in what we've always called their baby bird face. Kelly fed her several bites and then finally said no more. Ashlynn did not appreciate his fatherly wisdom, and fussed quite loudly at him for more sauce! We are still laughing at her. :-)
The older girls had a great time. Kora tried to stay up all night, but did finally fall asleep for about 20-30 minutes. They all crashed this afternoon, and will be going to bed early tonight!
