last week, we took the fifth wheel for another trip, the first trip since we put it into storage after the sabbatical. we were all very excited to travel in it again! this time we took it up to seattle to spend time with my mom who was on a business trip there.
on our second night, we went out for dinner. being in seattle, we, meaning my mom and i, wanted seafood, of which, mitch was okay with as long as the restaurant had something other than fish. my mom had heard from a friend that the crab pot was a fun place to eat, so we decided to try it out!
we entered the restaurant into our nuvi and headed out. for those of you who don't have a talking gps, it can be very comical at times to listen to the voice pronounce some of the street names. well, this night was no exception. as we got closer to our destination nuvi says, "turn right on alice can way and arrive at crap it on left." we all started laughing!
after finding an excellent unmetered, parking spot, we were able to enjoy a very fun dinner at the "crap it"! this place was so cool! my mom and i order crab, or "crap" as the nuvi would have called it, and shrimp. the waiter brought it out in this big stainless steel bowl and dumped our food out on the table. then, he gave us a wooden board and hammer to pound the crab legs open. we put on our attractive plastic bibs, provided by our waiter, and went to town on our little crab legs!
as i'm sure you can guess, our dinner took a tad bit longer to eat than the hamburgers and chicken fingers that the others ordered. there was a lot more work involved for us!
as my mom and i enjoyed our crab and shrimp, mmmm delish,
the girls occupied themselves by coloring on the table:and climbing in the windowsill (it's a good thing this was a casual dining establishment!):
the other two members of our family were not quite as patient! while mitch was gripping about how long i was taking to eat and feigning irritation and boredom: the baby had lost all patience:
and mitch finally gave up and took a nap (pretty good self portraits of mitch, don't cha think?):
FINALLY, i finished eating all of the yummy crab and shrimp that my belly could handle and everyone was so relieved and happy (ok, so i know the baby doesn't look too happy in this photo, but she really was happy to get out of her highchair! i think she just wanted to get down to show off her newly aquired walking talent she had just mastered!))
all in all it was a great dinner at the "crap it" on "alice can way"!
so, who can guess what the street name really was?? (if you already have been there and know the name don't ruin it for others).
