Yesterday was Bobby's birthday, and although we couldn't do something like last year, we did manage to have ourselves a pretty good time.
First up was dinner with the family at Crab Cooker in Newport Beach. It was nice to go out to dinner with everyone - we don't get to do that very often.
After dinner his brother, sister, and friends Jon and Oahn came back to our place to hang out for awhile. A few more friends came by the house and we had dueling rock bands for a few hours. The boys were in the back room jamming, and the girls were in the front of the house playing Rock Band on the XBox. We had to turn the TV up a little loud just to hear ourselves.
Luckily for us, our neighbors are very tolerant of noise. They are often pretty loud themselves, so they don't seem to mind too much if we are loud either. We played until after midnight, and just enjoyed the company.
