A Birthday Celebration

Yesterday would have been Matt's 36th birthday. This picture is typical Matt.

So, Lincoln (Matt's bestest friend) got a big group of us together to go eat sushi (Matt's favorite) and celebrate him and his birthday. This pic is of Lincoln and another friend Emily.

Jenee and Ivan (Matts other bestest friend, though he apparently had a lot of best friends). Look at her, such a poser. She HATES sushi, so this was an act of love on her part.

Guess who ate REAL sushi for the first time in her life? Yeah, that'd be me! I've had California rolls before, but that hardly counts. I ate a piece with raw salmon on top. Not my favorite, but I did it. I actually enjoy some of that stuff. I was proud of myself.

Guess who REFUSED to even try the tiniest bit of sushi? Yeah, that'd be Jere. He was so disturbed by it all, he'd just cover his face when i ate some. Wuss! hehehe

Jenee had this birthday cake made. Matt played Charlie Brown once, and it was his favorite roll ever. We all went to Lincolns house afterward and sang the worse rendition of Happy Birthday ever (apparently that's how the Hills do it) and then ate cake. All in all, it was a very lovely evening. A time to be with friends, to honor Matt and to enjoy the time we have.
Happy Birthday Matty!

Sounds like a wonderful evening. Matt I am sure was glad to see you all together having some fun on his special day.

I laughed out loud at Jere's sushi disgust, as i probably would have done the same :) Joe loves it, and i fear it...sushi that is.
