Yesterday was a great day! 🙂 I was able to spend the whole thing with Phil.
We started off our day with a quick run before we headed off to his company Picnic/BBQ. When Phil asked me if I wanted to go with him to his work BBQ of course I said yes! I would go no matter what but once he told me that the menu was steak and lobster, I couldn’t say no.
Phil works for a company that has the most ridiculous campus that I have ever seen. When I say “ridiculous” just think museum plus Disney world. To give a little over view, each building has a theme (examples are the wild west, heaven, dungeons and dragons and an Asian theme building). Each building is decorated according to that theme. It is just so over the top and a very nontraditional work environment. You could spend hours there and still not see everything. Every time I go back I see something new.
With that being said, I wasn’t sure what to expect for the company BBQ. The menu was pretty over the top, offering employees and their families steak and lobster, which led me to believe be whole day would be over the top. Let’s start with the food.
Watermelon, corn, steak, lobster tail, and cornbread is what I started out with. (Sorry about the picture of the half eaten plate). Being from Maine, I was unimpressed with the lobster (yes, I’m being a snob). I was expecting a full lobster with lots of butter to dip it in. I only know lobster one way, and of course that way is the right way. 😉
There was also dessert. I couldn’t pass up a root beer float. So good!!
The picnic had big blow up bouncy houses, a small area with farm animals, wagon rides pulled by a horse, volleyball/ladderball/other yard games, rock walls, and the list goes on. Phil and I opted out of participating in any of the activities. We really just went for the food and then got on with our day.
Phil wanted to go shopping for a few things. Of course I would never say no to shopping. One thing that we bought (which I’m really excited about) is tennis rackets! There are courts nearby and we have been talking for a while about getting rackets and playing once in a while. I can’t wait to use them!
It was a great date day. 🙂
