We by no means have all of our dental school debt paid off at this point(no he is not your typical dentist who only works 4 days a week...gasp!), but have realized that if Justin doesn't take a day for himself every now and again, that stress starts to consume him. So this month he took a day off and planned a day trip with Ryan and Grandma and Gramdpa Thompson to go clamming. His hygeniest Tracy, mentioned how fun it was, so of course he had to try it for himself.
So Justin set off in the morning to hit negative tide at Seaside, and with the help of Grandma, they caught tons! Turns out Grandma is the clam whisperer! I think for everyone involved it was a great day! Ryan still says "Beach...Clams???" with any mention of his Grandma and "Bi-pa".
And whats the point of catching clams if you can't have a clam bake? So yummy, we even got the kids to try them.
