Perfect 10

The oldest - double digits!! It's really hard to comprehend how quickly time flies. It's painful sometimes, but mostly a joy~

For Charlie's surprise dinner, we wanted to take him for seafood, could not figure out a place, and finally decided on Cheeseburger in Paradise, since we thought he could at least get shrimp there, and the atmosphere would be fun. When we uncovered his eyes in front of the restaurant, he said, "Oh, I love this place! But I've already been here." (The birthday dinner tradition is taking the guest of honor to a place they've never been before). Apparently, Grandma had taken Charlie a while back. This development left us with a scramble to come up with another place, and quick! Scott had the great idea of "Ditka's". Scott and I had gone about a week and a half before Mary was born, and the food was really good. I was just a little concerned, though, that Charlie would be too young to know who Da Coach is. But when we uncovered his eyes for a second time, he immediately knew where we were, and was really excited. Charlie was also impressed with how fancy it was. he actually whispered to us that "he should have dressed up". No worries though, the place wad dead on a Monday night.
The waitress surprised us with a delicious flourless chocolate cake. Charlie loved the raspberry sauce~
