Last Friday was my 26th birthday, and quite possibly one of the best birthdays I have ever had. First, I took Thursday afternoon off and my Dad came up and met me in Salem for an afternoon of golf followed by dinner! It was a lot of fun and I’m so glad we could get out together. Then the following night my fantastic wife organized a surprise birthday dinner for me with some of our friends who live close by. We had dinner at Benihana, a place I’ve always wanted to try (kind of like Shojis in Medford where I grew up but not quite as good). It was very fun and we topped the meal off with a vanilla bean cheesecake that Casey ordered special for me!
As we were about to leave the restaurant somebody made a joke comment about the go-cart track around the corner, this gave me the idea to thank everyone for coming by offering 3 laps each on the track. We spontaneously headed over to the go-cart track and had so much fun racing around. I was so happy everyone came, I had such a great time and it was a complete surprise!
Also, for everyone who sent me wishes, cards and gifts thank you all!
