Zak turned 30 on Sunday. Gettin' old, though he loves to remind me, not as old as I am.
His entire family was in town, so we celebrated together with a dinner out at Tepanyaki and an ice cream cake. I think Zak ate 1/4 of it by himself. We weren't able to find someone to watch the kids, so they came along to dinner. With food cooking right in front of us, I figured it would go one of two ways-Jakson would either by totally entertained or have a complete meltdown. As soon as we sat down, he immediately covered his ears, a sure sign that he was incredibly nervous. Fortunately, after the chef made a volcano out of vegetables, he warmed up and even moved over to Grandma and Grandpa's table to watch their "food show." The only issue came when the chef tried to throw some food into Jak's mouth and he dived under the table to avoid it.
Storey, on the other hand, completely jumped out of her high chair when the flame went up on the cook top. Oops. We were so focused on Jak's anxiety, we didn't even think about her. Poor neglected child.
Overall, it was the best behaved they have ever been at a restaurant. Their birthday present to Zak, maybe?

While he was smiling for the camera, Jakson snuck in and blew out his candles!
