Meagan Musing: Lobster Time

Meagan Musing


Lobster Time

Last Christmas Brian's mom, Janet, gave my family a gift certificate for a lobster boil to use anytime. We decided that playing with live lobsters and then throwing them into a giant pot of boiling water was just the kind of celebrating we needed to do for Brian's 28th birthday last week. We had all kinds of fun! Proof:

We were worried Brian and Matt might lose a finger, but they were saved by the rubber bands.

I think Matt was trying to stab them here. Because, you know, they weren't going to be dead enough in 30 seconds.

I thought they were a little scary looking.

Because you can't throw them into boiling water without making them try to fight each other first.

Dad could NOT WAIT to throw those guys into the water. The shrimp and lobsters, not Brian and Matt.

We got to wear bibs and everything! It also came with placemats so you didn't ruin your own with lobster juice.

The lobsters and shrimp were so yummy, but I can't decide if eating them was as much fun as watching the guys cook them!

  • Why do boys only like to cook when it involves being outside? It was only 40 degrees and they seem to be having the best time ever!

  • Had the best time! I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful family!

    And yes, real men cook outside...even if it's raining and a little chilly.
