Over the holiday weekend I went to Oak Creek for Jessica’s 10th birthday party. We grilled out and played yard games. The weather wasn’t as great as it could be, but it wasn’t terrible either. Jess requested brats and hamburgers, so my brother grilled those up. Dallas went to our friend’s lake house the day before and made up a bunch of Korean kalbi ribs. He gave us one bag to grill up and everyone seemed to like them. Jess got a ton of presents from Dallas and I, my parents, Brian and Sheila (and Ashley and Jason) and Amanda’s parents. I hadn’t seen my family since we went to Japan and had a bunch of little gifts for them. Some souvenirs, lots of candy and crackers, oragami sets, bonsai tree, some kokeshi dolls. Good to see everyone! Happy birthday, Jessica!
