The Jolly Oyster

Spread the love


Ho Ho Ho… time to have a jolly good time eating oysters!

P1350730

Boxes and boxes of them!

P1350731

Well…not that much, but we did order about 6 dozen oysters.

P1350732

Some raw, some on the grill.

P1350734

But before the wonderful meal is greeting the wonderful people that are coming today.

P1350741

Aiden was very interested in the first Chans that came by, because they had bikes.

P1350744

Aiden is geared up to be safe from the sun’s rays.

P1350745

Unlike Daddie who got a bad burn and Mommie who had a slight burn on the nose.

P1350747

Thanks to the worker at The Jolly Oyster to keep the damage down by lending us the “roof over our heads.”

P1350750

Poor Oyster Shuckers (Galen and Benny) were under the sun! Very big sacrifice!

P1350752

Even had to bring out some bandaids!

P1350754

Thank goodness TImothy and Rainbow are prepared!

P1350755

Benny brought things to mix some drinks for the guys.

P1350758

In the meantime, Timothy cleans the grill!

P1350760

We brought watermelon juice for the children!

P1350763

It was a hit by Aiden, he drank over 1.5 Ding Dong watermelon juice!

P1350764

Dominic had a little and Little Douglas even stole a few sips.

P1350766

The guys got the Jolly special of course!

P1350767

After that every dozen of oysters was only $10.

P1350770

When there were tiny oysters, they’d throw in a few….free!

P1350772

Aiden loved Nathan’s toy!

P1350773

I’d say all the kids loved this scooter the most.

P1350774

Thanks Nathan gor gor for sharing!

P1350777

These $5 knives purchased to shuck the oysters made it difficult!  We’ve heard the $15 ones were of finer quality.

P1350779

Other than the scooter, the kids also loved the ice chest full of drinks.

P1350781

They were kept occupied for a good period of time.

P1350782

Is AIden counting how many drinks belong to him???

P1350783

4 sodas?  Even 1 is too many little one!

P1350784

Aiden did so much walking that he was feeling a little hot.

P1350785

Basically, non-stop moving for the 5 hours we were there.

P1350787

It wasn’t all pretty.

P1350790

Aiden fell and hurt himself.

P1350792

We had to put ice on him which stopped the swelling.

P1350793

We tried to get him to sleep in his stroller during his regular nap time.

P1350796

But that didn’t happen, so we hurried to rent a ride to take Aiden around.

P1350799

But we didn’t go far as it was too windy and we headed back to grab Aiden’s sweater.

P1350802

Good thing Aiden had his blanket.

P1350805

So we wrapped it around him to keep him warm.

P1350807

Good thing he wasn’t too tired and was able to enjoy the ride he had been wanting to go on since we arrived.

P1350810

We passed by Toorima…beep beep.

P1350816

Jacket all set and we take off again.

P1350818

1 hour rental, Galen said that’s too long.

P1350824

But before we can tell the Jason, he went to rent one.

P1350825

Our photographer followed us along.

P1350829

So we had to take some photos of his hard work too.

P1350833

After all we were going at a very slow speed.

P1350836

Benny wanted us to ride all the way to the Ventura County fair.

P1350839

We might have gone along with his crazy plan, when I found out a big problem.

P1350842

The phone in my back pocket…gone.

P1350844

Oh no! Got to go find it!

P1350845

So we headed back.

P1350847

Not that Aiden knew or minded.

P1350849

But I was going crazy inside.

P1350850

And on the way back….

P1350852

We found Timothy rented one too!

P1350855

Hailey and Nathan seemed to be having a lot of fun!

P1350856

Long story short, phone is found.  Thank goodness Benny added “Locate Me” and we were able to retrieve my broken phone after someone picked it up.  We didn’t end up going to the beach because Aiden hadn’t had his nap yet.  Wonderful day even with the hiccup at the end.
