It's still a little crazy for me to be around Lauren, and our kids. It's still- how did this happen? How are we not still little anymore? How are we both Moms? Sometimes I feel like when we're together we're stuck at age 11 and 15 in my mind, and to take a step back and look around at our reality is a strange sensation. Hopefully I'll still feel this way when we're 81 and 85, right?
Our days together though were so fun. Sister time, Auntie time, cousin time. And let's not forget lobster roll time, frozen yogurt time, and running around in the green, green grass time.
A few things:
1. Even though I grew up on the East Coast and spent my summers in New England, I've yet to have a lobster roll. Lots and lots of lobster yes (remind me to tell you of the time I almost made Hank simultaneously cry and throw up at a lobster shack in Gloucester one day), but no lobster roll. So leave it to me to have my very first one in land-locked Arizona. In my defense, our little town's newest (and only) seafood spot outside of Red Lobster is run by a Maine-native who gets the lobster flown in. So that's kind the same? Maybe? Regardless, it was so good. My sister and I are big on seafood and we both gave it two thumbs up.
2. May is here! It's my birthday month, and our wedding anniversary month. It also happens to be Shirley's birthday, which is wonderful because she's one of my favorite people in the world, so her birthday is very special to me. Hank and I also always do a fun little staycation to celebrate our birthdays (his is June 1st) and our anniversary (May 31st) and this year we chose a super neat place in Phoenix. Can't wait.
3. Frozen yogurt is delicious.
