Sometimes it's just good to spend time with just one kid..

When you have multiple kids, it can be hard to get that one-on-one time. Sometimes it's just good to take one kid out and give them a special time. We dropped the younger two and hung out with our super cool godmother one evening for sushi and froyo.
Sushi is a Japanese food of raw fish and vinegared rice. We obviously had "western sushi" (rolls), not traditional Japanese sushi. Our meal consisted of california rolls, shrimp, tuna and salmon rolls. Some rolls had tempura. Tempura is battered seafood or vegetables.
Taking hold of my adventurous side, I decided to try mussels, one of my least favorite foods to look at. You only live once, may as well live it to the max! These were cooked (thankfully). Not sure if I'll ever try the "uncooked" version.
Our fun evening concluded with one of our favorite desserts... froyo. Froyo is short for frozen yogurt. One of the original frozen yogurt places I remember growing up was "TCBY" (http://www.tcby.com). There are so many different kinds of froyo places. But honestly they all have frozen yogurt, they all have "mix ins" and they are all weighed by the ounce. The cool flavors and crazy "mix ins" or toppings make the experience super awesome and provide thousands of potentially different varieties. Our froyo place had board games and awesome music which made for a really great evening.
