Abe told me that we were going out to eat with our friends Mandy and Chad on Saturday. So we get both the girls ready and go to meet Mandy and Chad at there house. When I walked through their door....SURPRISE!! It was a baby shower for Lily Kate! I was shocked!! The shower was sooooo much fun!! All my best friends were there and it was just fun hanging out with them. I received way too many adorable gifts! I am so thankful for my friends and I love them all soooooooo much!! Thanks Mandy and Jen for throwing the shower!! I couldn't ask for better friends!
NOW LISTEN TO THIS!! After the shower some of us decided to go get Sushi at Atami- a new sushi resturant by our house. I took Kate with me and Abe took Elle home with him. We almost sat at the hibachi table but decided not to at the last minute. We had just finished eating when we hear a loud and scary EXPLOSION! I turned around and the chef at the hibachi table was on fire! His hair, head, all the way down to his feet. The entire left side of his body was on fire. I'll never forget the look of complete terror on his poor face. I can't get it out of my head! He panics and starts running around the resturant. We all start SCREAMING! HELP him! Help him!!! Then we start yelling, stop and roll, roll!! Everyone in the resturant is screaming and crying. He's still completely on fire. He finally manages to run back to the kitchen and one of the other waiters takes his shirt off and covers him with it. We didn't see what happened after that because they were in the kitchen. He was on fire a long time....4 or 5 min. My friends and I called 911 and explained what had just happened. A few minutes later the fire truck showed up and a helicopter. They had to life flight the guy to the hospital. Apparently, when he was making the smiley face on the table with the oil, the oil bottle got too hot and exploded all over the guy. All I could think about is what if we had sat at that table......what if Lily Kate had got hurt. I felt sick to my stomach all night and couldn't sleep. Thank goodness Elle didn't come to the resturant with me. She would have been horrified! I don't know if I can ever sit at a hibachi table ever again.The only funny part of the night was Lily Kate slept through the WHOLE thing!!
