More Birthday Celebrating

Since I want my birthday to last as long as possible, here's another post on some of my birthday activities...and some of the things I ate on my birthday.

The day started off with a Dunkin Donut:

Unfortunately, I can't say it was purchased for my birthday specifically. Patrick and Kyle's girlfriends with both in town for the weekend, so we had a full house. They bought a dozen donuts on Sunday morning and luckily this one was leftover for me on Monday morning.

In the afternoon, Katie and I met up for a 2 mile rollerblading adventure. I am happy to report that neither of us fell, which was surprising to me since I haven't rollerbladed in probably at least 12 years. It was a lot of fun and I can't wait to rollerblade again!

And in the evening I met my parents, Kyle, Erin, and Danny at California Pizza Kitchen for dinner. We had a few issues overall with the quality of service and staleness of the tortilla chips, but everything else was great! 

We sat outside, which was nice for a summer night.  A little chilly, but not too bad.  And we had a nice view of the mall parking lot.

I had the fish tacos as my meal.

I of course had a lot of the bread and butter. Our main problem with the service was that the bread and water did not appear on our table in a timely manner, even after asking for it. The best way to judge a restaurant is how fast they bring the bread and water (or tortilla chips at a Mexican restaurant). And then we treated ourselves to dessert!

So that was a lot of the birthday fun! I took another few days off from running again... I did a short run yesterday though and have mile repeats on the schedule for tonight. I am also definitely getting in a long run this weekend, hopefully 18 miles!

And I got an iPad!  So now I'll probably be using it to post instead of my regular computer.  I can't seem to get the pictures centered from the iPad though, so that's just something we'll have to deal with.

  1. 1) That donut looks delicious.
    2) You go to California Pizza Kitchen and you don't get pizza? Crazy, but those fish tacos also look delicious.
