Ben turned 9! We always take the birthday kid out for dinner. It's a tradition Mike and Elaine started that we love and carried on. This year Sophie and Shayne were both gone so Ben asked if Josh and David could come too. So it was us and the boys at Ben's favorite place, "Chuck-A-Rama." He actually likes Golden Corral better but Joel talked him into "Up-Chuck" because he likes to make Rootbeer floats and you can't get your own drinks at Golden Corral. Anyway, it was fun.
