As the kids get older we have started just going to dinner as a family instead of always doing big parties at the house. For Rachel's birthday we went to Fujiyama's in Olympia. The kids had a great time, we requested a specific cook that Mike had seen before and he was awesome. He kept posing for pictures and calling me the paparazzi. He had Rachel come up behind the grill and pose for a picture with his hat on, it was hilarious. The food is awesome and the show is pretty entertaining, give it a try if you are in the Olympia area.
