This Week

This week has been busy. (and crazy)

So, when I got an email from someone I used to work with it made my day!!!

He shared a photo of his son in his Apple gear!  : )

Three years ago when I visited the Apple Headquarters in Cupertino I bought a gift for a future Apple user!  They had infant clothing items, but they were pink and yellow and I thought that they would be grown out of pretty quickly!

So I went with the toddler sizes.  Apparently I don’t know much about picking out clothes for kids!  LOL!

He’s just able to wear the tee shirt now!  But, it’s all good, since he is an Apple user and at four years of age has his own iPad! (cute kid too!)

On Tuesday night at Target I saw these Shark water bottles!

Where the heck were they BEFORE Shark Week I want to know?!?

Cape Neddick Lobster Pound

We visited Cape Neddick Lobster Pound twice this past visit.  We even had the same server both times!  She was excellent!

The first visit we ordered bowls of their yummy clam chowder.  It was the biggest bowl of chowder I’ve had in a long time! (the second visit we knew to get a cup!)

The twins and my Mom get the steamers her too.  They eat them so fast that it’s hard to snap a picture.  LOL!

The boys mix it up here too.  They rotate between the scallops and the clams!  Not a drop is ever left behind!

My Mom gets either the HUGE lobster roll or the lobster salad!

We love to eat up at Fox’s!

It’s amazing that my twin brothers and my Mom love the place as much as I do.  Love it when we all agree!

The view is awesome.  I never, ever get tired of the view from up at the Nubble Light!

The people that work at Fox’s are awesome too.  They all work hard to make sure you have what you need to enjoy your meal !  It makes me happy that they remember my Mom from year to year!  : )

The food at Fox’s is excellent.  That’s another reason why we continue to return!

The chowder is some of the best I’ve had!  The cups are just the right size and the bowls are huge!!!

The twins and my Mom love the steamers and usually get the order for two to share!

The twins usually get either the fried scallops, fried clams or half and half whenever they feel like mixing it up.  The portion sizes are super generous!

My Mom likes to mix it up.  She’ll try the lobster mac and cheese, lobster roll, baked haddock or lobster salad!  I’m sure she’ll try something different when we go back!
