One big Pizza

Robert's not one to stay home all Saturday long.  He wants to get out of the house and do something or go somewhere.  I am more content staying home... after all dragging 5 kids out somewhere is not always fun.  The car ride alone can be horrible enough.  Then there is the money of it all, taking 5 kids to dinner or an activity like bowling gets pretty expensive.

This particular Saturday was no different than any other, Robert was stir crazy and wanted to get out of the house.  We ended up at Pirate Island Pizza.  (I think.)  It is a pirate themed place with arcades and fun atmosphere.  It was kind of fun.  The kids liked it.  They have a BIG pizza, I think it said it is a 24" pizza, they call it the Kracken.  We ordered that, half cheese and olives for the kids and half something else for the adults.  When the pizza came, it was big.  When we were ready to go, we asked for a box for the left over pizza. 

When they brought the box to the table, they set it down verticle by Robert's chair it was so big.  It was HUGE!  We were laughing at how big the box was.  Robert wanted a smaller box and thought we could for sure squeeze the left over peices into a smaller box.  As we opened the monstrous box to put the pizza in it, it took box of us to hold the box and put the pizza in.  We kept cracking up how gigantic the box was.  As if it wasn't bad enough to put the pizza in the box, it was worse to carry the box to the car.  It wasn't due to its weight but just the size. 

We kept laughing and joking (and the kids were in on it too) about how it might not fit in our car if we got two of them.  The girls kept teasing me that the box wasn't going to fit through the door.  It was pretty funny. 

When we got home, the girls wanted me to get a picture of it.  Of course the pizza box wouldn't even come close to fitting in our fridge, so I had to take out the slices and cut up the peices so they would fit in a gallon size bag for the fridge.

Amber fits in the box too!

And of course, when does Amber not pose when I take her picture, even when she is in a huge pizza box!

That is HUGE! There was a pizza place near my home town that made huge pizzas like that. There is just something wonderful about an extra extra large pizza. Yum....
