twinkie family birthday dinner

tuesday night we were finally able to get my side of the family together in honor of celebrating karla and i's 31st birthday. we ate dinner at our local jim-n-nick's and requested to sit on the outside patio since we tend to be a loud obnoxious bunch. yes, really. our wonderful waitress surprised us with chocolate pie towards the end of our dinner, but before i go any further you must know this next detail...

apparently sweet baby jemma was sitting a bit too close to tita karmie's plate because while no one was looking she grabbed a jalapeno pepper, began to eat it, then began to obviously gag on it since it was definitely not the flavor she was anticipating. next thing we know projectile vomiting occurs and dinner is cut short. at least for me. nothing about my fish tacos seemed appealing. i honestly don't think i'll ever be able to order them again at future visits. oh well. needless to say, afterwards she was completely fine and bouncing around in my lap.

we all closed out our tabs and laughed at how lyla and carson are so addicted to the educational apps on our iphones. what did kids do before these handy distracting little devices? we have no idea. also, we watched as all the kids smothered tita karmie with begs and pleas to ride with her in her jeep. since our house is only minutes away, the "best tita ever" gave them a joy ride home. all in all, it was a great birthday dinner. sans the puking baby. but oh how i love her. happy birthday to us!

What a fun birthday dinner! So awesome that you have such a close net of family and friends around you to celebrate and have fun with. Poor Jemma - that was not the flavor she was anticipating I'm sure :(
