Birthday party.

My father-in-law is turning 75 on Monday so tonight we all met at a restaurant for dinner. First time in ages that all 25 of us have managed to be in the same place at the same time. My father-in-law's brother, who lives in Germany, was also there.

Ice and I were at opposite ends of the very long table so I think we managed to catch up on everyone's news. And dinner was good although I think that particular restaurant chain is too expensive.

The wait staff did the whole singing/clapping thing and then the family did their own rendition of Happy Birthday. Which made the birthday boy cry. Which led my sister-in-law to declare the dinner a success.
