Bubba Gumps And The Dancing Queen

Steamed Seafood

This weekend I was lucky enough to celebrate 3 birthdays. It started at a restaurant called Bubba Gumps. It's a family friendly, high energy restaurant that is based on the movie Forest Gump. I ordered the yummy steamed seafood. After eating the lobster claw and some of the crab legs I passed my plate over to Hubby, The Sgt. Major and my nephew Seth to polish off. I forgot to taste the Jasmine Rice but I'm sure it was good. We ordered some dessert to share and when our server brought it, he and 7 other servers sang a delightful birthday song to Grandma Dee and Tammy. It's a happy place with good food.

That night I went to a rollerskating rink for my beautiful friend Tina's birthday. It's been a long time since I was on skates. For the first 15 minutes I was desperately clutching my friend Chris's arm for fear of falling. Chris has his own skates and is obviously a pro. He talked me down and gently sent me on my way. I found my rhythm again and after an hour and a half of skating found myself grooving to Abba's Dancing Queen. It was definitely a moment that brought me back to my childhood.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
