happy 28th birthday to Ryan - or is it 29th?

Ryan thinks he just turned 29, but he really didn't. You do the math: 1981-2009. He's 28.

His parents came in town on Thursday night and treated us to a delicious dinner at Benihana on Friday. We opened presents (Julia and Jona you'll be glad to know I got him a remote control shutter release for our D80). Three cheers for Maren: I got him a guitar. Only he gets to pick it out, so pictures of that later... Leah got him a biking jersey.

We had pink cake and ice cream (Yup, Ryan...I only see 28 candles on the cake).And I decided that from now on, he will be referred to as Valentino. I don't know why I didn't think of this before. He was born on Valentine's Day...isn't it only fair?

Saturday after my run, I made heart shaped pancakes for everyone. The 4th time's a charm, right!?

We went to the Tech museum in San Jose. You could honestly be at that place for hours. We only scratched the surface. It was a lot of fun! But...naptime called. Leah really enjoyed the drawing station. Check out those dots. She's a pro.This is a picture of our family. I'm leaning toward using it as our Christmas card this year. What do you think? I only hesitate because of my apparent thunder thighs. Hmm...

I think you are amusing to read... I love reading your blog... and by the way... NO you do not look like Carlos Santana or Oprah... but you do have some facial similarities with Norah Jones... You are definitely prettier... but there are the similarities.

K, super congrats on the remote shutter release. That's gonna be AWESOME!!!!

And the first year we were in CA we had an E&Y Christmas Dance at the tech museum downtown and loved it. So fun you guys were able to go. And yes, the thermal picture thingy should definitely be your family picture. Definitely.

Happy Birthday, Ryan! I'm just going to tell everyone you're 38, since it looks like you're dying to be older.

Happy late birthday Ryan!! Maybe when you guys come to Utah next, we need to plan a little photo get together.

I could never keep track of how old I was in my late 20's. I am pretty sure I told people wrong on several occassions. Why is that? Ever since I turned 30, however, I have not had a hard time remembering...
