happy birthday to me

we went out for my birthday on friday night. the boys are having a fun time learning all about japan, so we decided to splurge (hey, it's my birthday) and go out to a japanese restaurant. the boys loved sitting on the floor, having our own little room! big d and i enjoyed the yummy food. the boys mostly did to, i think.

learning how to eat with chopsticks

sitting on the floor, enjoying the big window

successful eating with chopsticks?

remind me next year NOT to take the 2 year old. man, he is a handful.

mmmm sukiyaki, my favorite dish!

it really went well, considering it was sort of "last minute." the 8 year old found out he loves warm mugicha, and the baby loves tofu, at least half the time. it was sad, because we were too poor for the sushi. we decided it needed to be a yearly tradition, eating japanese food. not that we don't eat it at home frequently, but the experience of being in a japanese (well as close as we can get in utah) was well worth it.
