Happy Birthday Adam!

Adam celebrated his birthday on Saturday and we had a blast. Some of our best friends, Beth and Mike, came to visit from Boston and we got to show them some of our favorite places in the Triangle. Several of us went to dinner on Friday and to get Everett ready for the festivities, he got his first haircut! It was long overdue as he had plenty of hair reach down to his earlobes.
Trying to cut those sideburns so they won't be tickling his ears!

Everett was not so happy about the results

Everett was a lot better once we got him in his party outfit and realized everything is going to be okay!

This is the best coconut cake I've made so far. Every year, Adam gets to pick what kind of birthday cake he would like. He chose coconut for this year and turned out much better than I was hoping! It was accompanied by homemade pineapple ice cream! In my ice cream making attempts this week, I also made a caramelized banana ice cream. I rarely ever like banana flavored anything, but could have eaten a bucket of this stuff. We drizzled caramel sauce on top and it was one of the best ice creams I've made. Yum yum!
And if homemade desserts were not enough, I ordered Adam his own set of beer glasses. Thanks to Hosea for designing the awesome logo!

Celebrating Adam's birthday together!

Random Fact from Adam: "An average of 1,231 new cars hit Beijing's roads every day from January to July 2009, according to the Beijing Traffic Management Bureau. Beijing has 5.5 million drivers, out of 17 million residents."
