Topher's Birthday

For Topher's Birthday, I took him to Anniversary Inn in Logan...the nicest one there is!! And we stayed in the Oriental Gardens room. He of course loved it. There was a little Zen Garden he could play in, the tub was awesome, there were Chinese lanterns everywhere, the wall murals were all like asian gardens....it was a lot of fun.


After our romantic weekend, we went home and a couple days later, we had the family over (minus Emily :( ) to have a big Birthday dinner. We did it Korean style just for Topher! This means that we made a special trip to the Korean store and spent over $100 on food!! We bought tons of side dishes and the meat to grill, the special Korean drinks and the whole works. We then went home and got to work making the table as full as possible!! In Korea, the more full the table, the nicer the meal is supposedly. I'd say we had a pretty full table. We both had been slightly nervous because so many members of the family are such big babies when it comes to spicy food...but...it actually went really really well and we're pretty sure everyone found something on the table they liked. :) Alan was our master griller...Jen really liked the mushrooms...Dacia was funny because she really liked the soup, but every bite complained she needed more milk and it was too spicy...go figure she's the one that ate the most of it! Daddy seemed to really like the salad. Alan I think liked everything. But hey, he's Alan. :)

He also got some really cool presents! So thank you to everyone! He loved all his gifts!!
