We celebrated our 29th wedding anniversary by eating dinner at our favorite local restaurant, the University Club. Ashley and Eric sent us the flowers in the middle of the table. It was lobster night so Bob enjoyed lobster bisque, a whole lobster and a special dessert. The chef made a huge dessert tray for Bob and I that had 5 different desserts: 2 bombes, a cheesecake with strawberries marinated in grand marnier, and a key lime pie that was scrumptious!
We had a blast doing a lobster boil for Bob on Father's Day. It was the first time we have done one. We bought that special pot to cook everything in. We created the "boil" of quartered lemons, white wine, water, a crab boil seasoning bag, fresh parsley from our herb garden, salt, pepper, whole crushed garlic and onion. We added new potatoes and corn. Then we put in lobsters and cooked them for awhile. Lastly we added shrimp, sausage and king crab legs. We had a wonderful table setting of lobster gear and to top it all off: We had fabulous company, Ashley and Eric!

A fun adventure to the new Cardinal's stadium during their Inaugural season. Both Bob and Eric have been to see if previously but Ashley and I enjoyed exploring the shops and restaurants. The Cards beat the Cubs 9-6. We were worried about this game when we learned that Pujols was out with an injury. To save the day Jim Edmonds came back after a 7 game absence. He did very well! We had a great time!
