Happy Birthday, Kristen!

First..I must touch on the fact that SOME people's greyhounds seem to snuggle much more than others. I wanted to set the record straight that my dogs snuggle...In their own way..weird way...they even kiss on occasion..
Henry says this is what he thinks of snuggling.
but enough of that. On to Kristen's birthday festivities! 'Cuz you know we didn't just have cake and ice cream!!!
We went to Washington DC (yes, that is two hours away for dinner) to eat dinner at Marakesh!
it was a load of us..
Kristen and Gyeongher dadScott and Iva (of Beau and Belle fame)and Doreen, Allen and MeganIt was a really neat experience..we first had to wash our hands.
B/c we were going to eat everything with our handsKristen got a cool certificate that said something we couldn't readAnd we each got to sign the back..after a few bottles of wine I hope i wasn't too sappy!
And we even got to have a photograph with the host
and I must not forget...the entertainment. Every few hours (and the entire meal took 5 hours), a table was put in the middle of the restaurant and we were treated to about 20-30 minutes of belly dancing!
All in all it was a great experience. The food was OK, the wine was Ok, the experience was unforgettable and the company was superb! Happy Birthday to my bestest friend ever!

am i the only one that thinks in the photo of you washing your hands, you look all of 16 and jason is the naughty professor? i'm raiding your bathroom for your face creams.

looks like a fun night. two hours? i think if we drove two hours, we'd be nowhere.

You guys look like you had an awesome time. I'm sure the boys enjoyed the belly dancing while there was much debate over which one had the best abs :)

The kissing pic is fab. Much love to old man Henry. That's how my girls feel about snuggling. Maybe they need a man around the house.
