31 and Still Having Fun

Saturday was Jesse’s 31st birthday. Neither of us can believe he’s 31. It seems like just yesterday that I was saving up my lunch money so that I could buy him a Fossil watch for his 18th birthday. I know I say this all the time, but seriously, where did the time go?

Last year for his 30th birthday, we got a big group together from the embassy. I was about 5 weeks pregnant at the time- thing sure do change in a year’s time, don’t they?

This year, since we knew the munchkin would be with us, we decided a low-key celebratory dinner was in order.  There are tons of yummy places to eat here so we had a hard time choosing where to go but we finally decided on Trader Vic’s.  We had never been to one and had heard that the food and drinks were really good.  We knew we were going to love it as soon as we walked in. The atmosphere was awesome and we were pretty much the only ones there, which is always a plus.


Emerson Week 19 010


The food did not disappoint! Jesse got Wasabi Crusted Sirloin and it was amazing!  Seriously, my mouth is watering just thinking about it! I got Chicken Chow Mein and it was also really good, but it surely didn’t compare to that steak. We were too full for dessert but we did get fortune cookies. We couldn’t help but laugh at Jesse’s:


And mine was pretty fitting, too, considering the week we’d had:


After dinner, we headed home to watch a movie.  I think we only made it about halfway through before we were all ready for bed. Man, we’re party animals these days.

No complaints here, though. I think it was the perfect celebration for our little family of three!image
