Friday Night Feast

No, your eyes are  not deceiving you- there is no Project Life post this week. It was birthday bash weekend at our house, and in the weeks leading up to it, I was focused on prep for it instead of Project Life and scrapping. Sometimes you actually have to make memories if you want something to scrap. 

On Friday night, we went to a Japanese steakhouse. It was the first time for the kids. Ian really enjoyed it. Annaliese, not so much...

Fire at the other table
Before our chef  arrived, Ian was awe-struck by the chefs at the other tables. His fingers were in his mouth- a habit he has when he's super excited/nervous.
Chopstick Light Sabers
The chopsticks made great light sabers- an excellent way to spend time waiting for the chef.
Hot Fire
And the chef started off with a big fire.  Ian pulled back from the heat.  Annaliese was hiding her face on Darrin's lap. 
Bowl Flip
Flipping a bowl of rice before handing it to Darrin.
Trying out Chopsticks
Annaliese liked playing with the chopsticks...
Resisting the Rice
but wasn't excited about the food. She loves rice at home, but refused to eat basically anything here.
Catching the Shrimp
And the shrimp toss. All the adults attempted it. I was definitely not as talented as Darrin was in this department (the shrimp is the streak headed straight towards his mouth). 

It was a fun place to go for Ian's birthday. I loved watching his face as he took it all in.  He ate ALL his shrimp and was amazed at what the chef could do.  It was a great way to kick off the weekend of celebrating.
