My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

thoughts are the seeds, the harvest can either be flowers or weeds. — William

What is it Momma??

We went to Olive Garden Sunday with some long time friends of Subvet's from his first boat.

(Hi Pam)

I got the seafood portofino.

Sonshine, sitting next to me, was fascinated with these:

So, silly woman that I am, I stuck them all in my togo box and washed them off for the kids to inspect.

So now we're talking about clams and mussels and oysters. ~~ always an adventure!

What a great Mom to take a simple meal and turn it into a learning experience. Yeah!

Sara said...

But of course! Now you can use them for some great craft project, too.

The Olive Garden is just one of many classrooms in The School of Life, huh?! :)

And what a wonderful fringe benefit to that classroom! lol

Now, pass the salad and breadsticks, please!

One of my daughters kidnapped some of these after a restaurant outing and put them in her little-girl purse and left them in the car. Where they stunk it up good until we figured out what it was. &:o) That was another kind of lesson, I guess.
