お誕生日おめでとうございます or, Happy Birthday Alex

To celebrate Alex' birthday at home, we had miso soup, vegetarian sushi, nori maki rice crackers and Tamanohikari Omachi Junmai Daiginjo Sake.

Followed by red velvet cake and ice cream, of course!

Sat with Penny and Alex after the meal and went through baby photos.  There was a shot of Rob at 13, which we compared to a shot of Alex at the same age. What a difference between generations. Rob at 13 looked more like a young businessman, buttoned down for his school photo with hair cut short. Alex at that age with his skater-boy long locks, arms akimbo.

We don't pull the old photos out often enough, that's for sure! So many wonderful memories. I can't believe we didn't snap a few photos for the digital age. Too busy celebrating, I guess.
