• Quinn and I had the pleasure of celebrating my mom’s birthday yesterday! Her birthday was actually over the weekend, so we made plans to celebrate with my sister and Matthew over lunch at Legal Sea Foods.

    It was so nice to catch up with my mom and sister. We do our best to get together as often as we can, but it’s a little trickier now that we have little ones.

    Look how big Matthew is now! I still remember when he was Quinn’s size.

    Matthew (and Grandma) had a blast playing with that mesh bag! Haha!

    Right after we ordered lunch, Quinn started to get hungry, so I fed him a bottle, which he held with his tiny hands all by himself.

    We started with the Bang Bang Cauliflower as an appetizer to share among the three of us. As always, it was delicious!

    For my entrée, I ordered the Chipotle BBQ Chicken Pizza, which was made with cheddar, Gouda, jalapeno jam, bacon, grilled onions, and crispy kale. It was much spicier than I expected, but I really liked it!
