Happy Birthday HoagieBear!

Andrew turned 28 years old on Friday.
Here is a picture of us from 10 years ago when he turned 18... feels like yesterday.

Andrew's 18th Birthday 06.24.2001  @ AJ Spurs

We celebrated Andrew's Birthday this year much the same... with a yummy dinner!  We went to Kona Grill at the fabulous La Cantera shopping mall last night.

Kona Grill has a beautiful indoor fish tank.
I love watching all the tropical fish...
makes me get even more excited to snorkel in Maui next month.
You'd think seeing the pretty fishies would have deterred us from ordering fish entrees, but we still did.
We love this restaurant and have eaten there a few times. They even gave Andrew a complimentary Birthday dinner (up to $20 :) and threw in a delicious red velvet cupcake for dessert. Score!  Our bill was only $25 + tip ~ don't worry, I tipped on the price of the whole meal. It was still a really good deal!

Andrew and our dinners: He ordered sweet chili glazed salmon and I ordered miso sake seabass.
Both excellent choices! Especially his, because it was free!  Happy Birthday Andrew!
This yummy red velvet cupcake was just icing on the cake :)
This June 24th was very bittersweet for us because Andrew shares his birthday with my precious cousin Ryan, who would have turned 18 on Friday. Ryan went to be with the Lord last October and we miss him soooo much.

We love you and miss you everyday
We think about Ryan and his family everyday and they are always in our prayers. I'm pretty sure he had a rockin' birthday party in heaven, but we still wish he was here with us.
