When we finally came home from Utah, it was already May, which meant Jake's birthday, our 6th wedding anniversary, and the upcoming birth of number 3. First, Jake's birthday. We went to Miyama, which is a totally cheesey, Beni-Hana-esque Japanese steakhouse. It was fun, though. I took a totally cheesey picture of the two of us, but there were plenty of other people with us: the kids, Maki, Jake's parents and brother and sister. Jake's big B-day gift: reinstatement of cable television, including the Fox soccer channel.
I had no idea that later that night, Jake would blow out his knee in a game of indoor soccer and require major surgery. Yeah, does life ever get less complicated?
Finally, here we are at the latest event in our fast-growing family. This is our newest pride and joy.
