When in Rome…

..or in this case, when in the Maritimes, you must eat seafood. It’s no secret that Andrew and I love our lobster. In fact, we love it so much that our recent trip back East included a lobster poutine. Yes, you read that correctly, a lobster poutine (fries, gravy, cheese, hollandaise sauce and lobster).It also included not one but two feedings of lobster and a round of steamed mussels.

So considering his parent’s love for seafood you would think that Lincoln would be a fan by default. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on who you talk to) this wasn’t the case.

He did enjoy watching Andrew prep the lobsters.

But when it came time to eat the lobster, he had other plans (at least he didn’t feed it to the dog!)

We tried again at Nanny & Poppy Hicks’ with the same result. I guess we shouldn’t complain because it just means more lobster for us.

Lincoln was also given the opportunity to eat steamed mussels at Aunt Christa’s place but they were met with the same results.

He definitely enjoyed removing the mussel from the shell, and even put one in his mouth. But when it came to actually eat them, he was just as content to shell them for mom and dad. No complaints here.

What do you mean you’re supposed to eat these? Blech.

Maybe as he gets older he will develop a love of seafood. Until then, we’re just as happy to not have to share 🙂
