Melanie's birthday was on Thursday, but we had a school function for the kids on that day. So we had her birthday dinner tonight.

20071006_MelsBirthday0 We had all our available family. However, Alan was out because he was in school in New York, and Andrew was out because he had to work.

The meal was delicious. It was one of the best roasts ever.

20071006_MelsBirthday1 Alan did get to show up though. We held a video chat with him for most of the meal. He was quite sad when we told him how good the food was. However, it was a lot of fun and the technology worked very well.
