A lot of times on Friday night the hubs and I order pizza from our favorite little place, Ziggy's. Tonight I was feeling frisky...or brave...or having cabin fever...however you want to put it. Usually we don't go to restaurants much because O just doesn't like to sit still, but we decided to go out to eat as a family to a local Japanese place called Wasabi. I was thinking that it would entertain Owen enough for us to be able to eat and that he would actually like the food too since he loves chicken and rice. Well......I was right!!! He did so amazing and it was a lot of fun. I miss going out to eat so much. He loved the Miso soup! He even liked it after I added soy sauce to mine...cause that's how momma likes hers. :)
He wasn't a fan of the salad with ginger dressing, but that's okay. Not many kids I know would eat that I'm sure. After our soup, salad and a sushi roll the infamous chef with his cart came rolling out to the Hibachi grill! I couldn't wait to watch O as he made that big fire. He was a little scared/confused and a lot curious, but it was so cute. I think this is his face (so funny) as he was watching the first bits of steam rolling off the grill, not as the big fire came. I wasn't shooting that because I wanted to witness his reaction.
Here's one of he and Chris watching the show.
Owen loved the soup, rice, chicken and even ate a little bit of grilled shrimp, too. His little belly was bulging when he was done. I love it. I was so proud of him. We even got compliments by our fellow table sharers on how well behaved he is! What?!? We confessed that it had just been a good night. ;)
On our way out we topped his night by letting him look at a motorcycle in the parking lot. Oh how he loves cars, trucks, tractors, motorcycles, buses, etc so this was like dessert for him.
What a great family night! I told Chris we would be eating at Wasabi for the next year. ha!
