so as i said this morning, saturday night was zane's long awaited (and delayed due to an insanely packed schedule) birthday dinner at buca di beppo. it was super fun! evan, raven, and raven's mom agntprovocateur joined us after spending the day nerdwatching at wondercon.

we spent about 2.5hr eating. part of this was not intentional, our waitress disappeared for about 50mins at one point despite repeated expeditions to try and find her hidden retreat. it was a really wonderful evening. happy birthday again zaney!

next year i will officially have 3 teenagers and no more kids!

looks like so much fun!

happyhappy birthday! please tell me teenagers sleep more than little kids. you can even lie. i desperately need something to look forward to as the boys grow older. ;_;
You really have some great looking kids, Hep! I can't believe how they've all grown!!

You are such a cool mom. I hope I can be like you when Kieran is older.
That looks awesome! What a great birthday dinner =)

And you were right, they all look like you. You, gurl, are dominant!
Happy Birthday Zaney!

I have a big ol' soft spot for Buca di Beppo - our wedding reception was there (the one on the Northside of Chicago). they closed it however :(
I was so sad that they closed the only Bucca in town. We used to love going to the Pope Room with a big party of people.
next year i will officially have 3 teenagers and no more kids!

I will arrange to buy you a goat to solve that problem.
