Last night we left these guys with a babysitter and went out to dinner for my birthday. Jansen's been having a hard time when we go out lately, so we try to make the night fun for him and Natalie by throwing some treats in a bowl and letting them watch a movie. Lately they are loving a fighter pilot documentary called Operation Red Flag. Out of all the movies we have, they just keep wanting to watch that one. It cracks me up.
Nate and I went to Benihana. It was in a hotel near the Strip, and the ambiance inside the restaurant was really awesome. It's fun to be entertained while eating.
I got yakisoba and Nate had filet mignon and scallops. Our meals included onion soup, a salad, vegetables, rice, some shrimp, and a bowl of ice cream. And I just now remembered I have some leftovers in the fridge. Excuse me for a minute.
My ice cream had a candle in it, and after they sang to me and I blew out the candle, our waitress asked if I had made a wish. Some cheesy part of me put my arm around Nate and I said, "It already came true." Hahaha. Well, that's really how I feel though. :) The Japanese waitress was just incredulous that we had kids at home. 3 of them! She thought we were both single and just on a date. I laughed because if we had been at a Benihana in Salt Lake, everyone would take one look at us and think, "I bet they are Mormon, married, have a few kids, and have been married for 5-10 years." But not in Las Vegas!
It was a wonderful night. Couldn't think of a better way to start off my 30s!
