The girls had cheer on Chase's birthday, so it was just the two of us celebrating. I took Chase to a Vietnamese Restaurant in Evergreen called Saigon Landing. He has soft shelled crab and crispy duck. I stuck with pork and shrimp. I baked his favorite, homemade Carrot Cake...with extra frosting. Mike is still in Toronto, and will be home next week. We will have another celebration when he gets home. He is taking Chase to see Metallica. Mom wasn't invited...should I feel sad? Or glad?
