Birthdays This Decade

Last night we went to Fuji-ya in Uptown for my birthday dinner, which was a surprise party planned by Lauren!  She invited Liz and Curt, Tim and Kate, Christian and Jaime, and Jason.  Though the secret that there was some sort of gathering was leeked to me, I didn’t know any of the specifics until we left for the restaurant last night.

I don’t have photos prior to 2002 readily available at this time, but I’m sure I could dig some up.
