We had a very nice weekend of good food, nice weather and celebrating . . .
We had our stoic neighbors over for dinner to celebrate Ross's birthday. Thank you, Anse and Esther for knowing how to properly pose for a photo. After nearly five years, we give up on the other three!
Then we really celebrated in Brussels . . .
in this area called Quartier Saint Catherine.
We even stayed one night in this cute little hotel that's been around since 1896.
We were assigned to the Tahiti Room. Interesting to say the least.
Then we went to this little bar called Cafe Merlo . . .
where Ross's two good friends, Laurel and Jenna, hosted a surprise party for him.
There were lots of decorations and fun "extras" (thanks to Randi!) like mustaches, glow bracelets, a photo booth and all Ross's favorite candies.
We even had Randi and Hannah join the celebration on Skype!
Naturally, Winslow was there.
Jenna made two delicious cakes and speculoos tiramisu that was the best we've ever eaten.
