we went on a boat
This weekend was amazing. Family filled weekends are the best. Sunday we did two things, we ate shrimp and went on a boat. Last week Mai, (my cousin in law) asked if we wanted to join her family on a duffy boat ride. I'd never been on a duffy boat, and since Ardo "usually" likes the water, we said sure. You know those days you have when everything goes just smoothly. There's no fighting to get out the door. Your toddler naps the whole car ride, getting himself a good hour in. (considering he doesn't nap anymore, this as a blessing) And you arrive at your destination on time! Our first stop was Killer Shrimp, I've never been but any restaurant on the water....I'm there. Ardo was pretty distracted by the water, and since he had just woken up from his nap he was HUNGRY! Killer Shrimp is known for well something on the menu called killer shrimp, which is basically a bowl of shrimp with either bread for dipping, noodles or rice in a spicy sauce. I was sharing with a toddler so I ordered popcorn shrimp and sweet potato fries....and we gobbled them all up. Then we were off to set sail. Even if we were going round in big circles, just being out there and doing something different, was so much fun. When we got on the boat the man helping us said, "oh the little guys need life jackets," it was Ardo and Mai's nephew. I saw the life jacket and thought Ardo wasn't going to have anything to do with it, but to my surprise he put it on with no problem. Amy (another friend on the boat) snapped a pic and captured this face... I tried explaining to him about the 3 hour tour (you know, gilligan) to make him feel a little better.
