Another Birthday Celebration

We didn't just get to celebrate one birthday this weekend but two, well actually three. Justin's mom, aka my MIL, was celebrating a BIG birthday and we had to do something special for her. We decided that instead of any type of surprise party that we would take her to dinner and then we would meet a few of her friends out at a piano bar for some drinks.

We decided to pick a place that none of us have been to, so Fogo De Chao it was. We had reservations at 6:30 and after endless supply of salad bar and Brazilian meats, we were on our way out. Before loading up and heading down to Ernie Biggs we stopped for a quick family photo op. By 9:30 we were surrounded by 10 of Janet's closest friends and we were all well on our way to a fantastic evening. We did a celebratory shot (lemon drop, doesn't get much easier than that) and we sang our hearts out. I know I always talk about how lucky I am to have Justin but that extends to his family as well. We always manage to have a great time and Saturday was no exception, one of our best family outings. I need to give special props to Becky, who is celebrating a birthday on Tuesday-thus the third birthday, she was a trooper and met me drink for drink, which wasn't a lot but I believe the last time she REALLY drank was before Colton and he is now 2 1/2! Anyways, back to the party, I am not sure if I know many people who would celebrate such a big birthday at Ernie Biggs but Janet did it well. We all had such a great time and you know, its pretty neat when you can go to a bar with your MIL and her friends and have just as good of a time as you would with your own friends.

Happy Birthday MIL and Becky. Thanks for always, ALWAYS making me feel so welcomed into this family. May the upcoming year bring you both so many, many wonderful things!
