Mellow Mushroom

Last weekend my mom came into town for the weekend. She got here late Friday night and was able to stay until late Sunday afternoon. It has been almost a month since she has been here, so she was really surprised at how much the babies have changed since then (more about the changes in a later post). We had a great time with Nana here. She really helped take care of them after their 6 month check up. They were all very puny and wimpish after getting all their shots. Saturday was a pretty rough day. All three had low grade fevers and were not wanting to eat at all. But we pushed through and by the end of the day they were feeling better.

Sunday morning I let Crystal sleep in and Nana and I did the early feeding. We fed and watched CBS Sunday Morning (a tradition). After we got done with feeding I got a wild hair and came up with the idea of taking them to lunch at Mellow Mushroom. My thinking is that it is a little loud in there and it’s wide open so if they do have a meltdown it won’t be as dramatic. We had not tried it yet and part of me was a little scared, but since we had an extra person we had a 1:1 baby/adult ration. As many of you know, you can’t let them outnumber you! They are out to get you and will take over! LOL!

We decided to get them ready, feed them at 11:30 and then quickly head out the door. They are usually pretty sleepy after they eat so they might be easier to control! Well, it worked. By the time we got to the restaurant, Kate and Jack were asleep. We decided to just carry them inside instead of breaking out the Limoux. They staff was great, they got us a huge table where we could spread out and have plenty of room. Our waiter, not too bright, actually came up and asked “are they all three twins?” Could have teed off on him but decided not too. Addi sat there looking up at me and fell asleep within about 10 minutes of walking in the door. Jack woke up and played in his car seat the whole time. Kate woke up about the time the pizza got to the table and got a little fussy so Crystal and Nana took turns holding her. Overall it was a great experience and will give us the confidence to do it again. Maybe even just the two of us!

  1. Yum! I was just talking about Mellow Mushroom earlier, and thinking I would love to have some this weekend. My husband and I joke that we miss the days when the girls sat in their carriers and napped while we ate! Once the little hands started grabbing at our plates, it began to get a little harder to go out to eat. We still do it, though...we love eating out!

    They are all getting so big!!

  2. I have never heard of the mellow Mushroom...what is it? The pictures looked great of the food and family:)
