13 years ago we started this journey together. Absolutely head over heals in love and excited about what the future would bring.
It’s been a wonderful ride as we have been blessed with four darling children and the opportunity to live all over the country. So many adventures and wonderful memories and we are still head over heels in love. I could be with him 24/7, 365 days a year and never tire of his company. We decided to celebrate our anniversary as a family and go out to dinner together. With 6 in our home it isn’t something that we do very often.
We chose Red Lobster since we love seafood and knew the kids would easily find food on the menu that they would be excited to try.
Lobsterfest is going on right now so there are so many wonderful dishes to choose from. Of course the girls wanted to stop by and see the live lobsters when we first walked into the restaurant 🙂
We placed our order (which is no small feat with 4 children, trying to remember what everyone wanted) and had fun visiting while we waited for our food.
Dallin was content to sit and eat biscuit after biscuit and we had to remind him that he ordered off of the adult menu this time and should probably save room. When did our little guy grow up? 11 years old and can out eat both of his parents. It’s fun to see him try new foods and not go for the basic kid menu items anymore.
Dinner was absolutely delicious and we ended up with leftovers for the next night. Derrick ordered the Ultimate Feast, a tender split Maine lobster tail, steamed North American snow crab legs, garlic shrimp scampi and Walt’s Favorite Shrimp.
Being a pasta and seafood lover I was immediately drawn to the Lobster Lover’s Dream, a succulent rock lobster tail and sweet split Maine lobster tail, roasted and served with lobster-and-shrimp linguini Alfredo.
Derrick taught Dallin how to crack open his crab legs and Dallin did a pretty good job. The rest of the kids ordered various seafood dishes like fish and chips and popcorn shrimp, but the best dishes were definitely the ones that we ordered from the Lobsterfest menu. Everything tasted fresh and wasn’t too salty at all.
It was so fun to include the kids on our special day. We even drove past the spot where we had our first kiss, much to the gagging and sighs of the kids. We feel so fortunate to be living this life and wouldn’t change a thing. I can’t imagine sharing these moments with anyone else!
Be sure to stop by Red Lobster, for a limited time, to enjoy the delicious Lobsterfest dinners! What “Lobsterworthy” occasion will you celebrate?
