Date 147 - Belated is Better.

Date: Saturday, March 21, 2015
Type: Travel, Family
Cost: $$
Planned By: Michelle

My sisters and all our husbands celebrate our birthday together every year. For mine and Jim's birthday we had to postpone the party because of terrible weather. We did finally get together a month later.

First, Michelle made a special lunch for all of us. She made BBQ Chicken Avocado Quesadillas and Chicken Parmesan Sandwiches. I love Michelle's home cooking. It was delicious!

Then we competed as couples in Minute to Win It. Adam and I crashed and burned. We did come in second place in a bunch of the games, but you only get points for winning. So we came in last.. which we took surprisingly well for how we normally act when losing.
Then Jim got to decide on a board game to play. Ultimately, we all played Settlers of Catan together. Most of us had never played, and normally that means Michelle or Jim will probably dominate.. but not this time. I won! It was a pretty close game at the end, but I have to say that I dominated.

Before dinner, Michelle, Manda and I had a mini photo shoot with eachother in Michelle's backyard.
For dinner we went in to downtown Columbus to eat at the Japanese Steakhouse. The food was delicious and our hibachi chef was hilarious with all his silly puns.

After dinner we returned to their house and enjoyed one of the most delicious birthday cakes! Michelle made us an ice cream cake! There were layers of chocolate cake, mint ice cream, chocolate ice cream and fudge. It was so so so good!

It was a long fun day, and we all were tired so we retired to the couch for some cat videos and other funny things on YouTube and then went to bed.

The next day we all got up early to head back home. We had a great time and can't wait for Amanda and Adam's birthday party in the summer!
