Peter and I both celebrated our birthday last Thursday. I am glad that Peter is finally 24, but he is not catching up because I turned 27! We had birthday dinner and cake at our house on Thursday and then celebrated by going out on a date Friday night and dropped our baby off at a friend's. It is the first time we have been just the two of us since Laura was born.
My parents called and made reservations at a Korean restuarant and paid for us. The food was awesome and thanks to my parents, Peter didn't have to choose one thing and was able to order everything he wanted. The food was excellent. When we finished and asked for our ticket, the Korean lady told us to wait. 5 minutes later she came out with a Wal-Mart birthday cake with lighted candles and announced to everyone in the restaurant, in her broken english, that it was our birthday and everyone sang to us.
i'm not quite sure what my mother said or paid to that little Korean lady, but it was such a fun surprise.
