Nine IS Fine!

Griffin turned 9 today!

 He opened presents

 He got a compass; then instructions to follow to find his last present:

That made one happy boy!

Then we went to the beach
 He caught sand crabs
 Quinn went out to catch a few waves
 Griffin followed his lead
 Oh, we saw Wonder Woman and Captain America!
 He got his birthday cake
Yellow cake with white frosting with some of the cake with no frosting.
So many candles on fire, you can't see the cake!

 All gone. I don't think he had anymore.

Our Meal AFTER the Drop Off

We usually go and eat at Chili's after a missionary drop off, but this year we ate at Chili's the night before the drop off so we wanted something different. The eating helps take our mind off of the missionary that we just left! We decided to go a little more upscale and we found this Japanese Steak house! It was very good.

 Griffin asked to finish everyone's fried rice! He loved it!

Quinn enjoyed eating off of Kylie's plate.

Hmm, I wonder what we did next....
