Happy Birthday to Steve

If you want to ensure that everyone in the family will give your husband proper attention on his birthday, send him away for a few days (five, to be exact) immediately before the special day.

He was missed. And we were all very happy to have him back home.

On the way back from picking Steve up from the airport, I told him that his dad came over and helped me with his birthday surprise. He guessed the project right off. (The hanging up of our television.) I suppose that means it was exactly what he wanted? He also scored some really cool gifts from the kids like Doritos and Peanut M&Ms.

We lucked out and were invited by the SYSCO representative to dinner and a Jazz game on Steve's birthday. What more could he have asked for?

We went to Bambara in Salt Lake and feasted on Blue Cheese Potato Chips, Calamari & Shrimp, Potato Gnocchi with Mushrooms and Hazelnuts, Bacon Roasted Brussel Sprouts, Grilled Organic Chicken and Scallion Mashed Potatoes, Lemon Pound Cake, and Chocolate Bundt Cake. It was delicious. And, as always, food seems to taste a little better when it's free.

And that's all, folks. The Steve Ballard Family winter birthdays have now concluded.
