Dinner was literally delivered all in the box. Corn on the cob, lobster bisque soup, fresh clams, lemon, butter, the whole works plus the lobsters. Even the huge pot to boil the lobsters in was provided. It was the best birthday dinner ever…and another highlight of the dinner was for us to take an intermission from dinner to go to the school to watch Hunter wrestle in his first match of the season. Just a few weeks when he literally hit the wall and we wondered if he would wrestle at all this season! For the first time in his life, he took first place overall in his division. And today the dentist took the wires off his teeth and is fitting him for a mouth guard to be worn in all sports…forever. The dentist referred to his teeth recovery today as a “miracle”. Three teeth are cracked but all thirteen that were originally loose are all back in place and stable. We’ll just have to keep going in every few weeks for some time and watch them. Regardless, a birthday lobster dinner and a gold medal was a grand evening for our family.
The plate I gave Elizabeth of french toast, fruit and yogurt was not that entertaining or yummy once she saw the lobsters. She didn’t eat one but touching and checking in out was fun. She also had a fun with corn on the cob. I cut corn off the cob for her to eat. She was more interested in the cob as a toy!
