Adam and I are both September birthdays, so it tends to make the celebrations fairly easy. It was also "birthday month" for another one of our close friends Michael, so we decided to make a festive affair of it, and plan a Friday brunch at Koi (It also turned out to be bday month for Brynnen and Sara...it must had been a cold/boring winter for our parents). We were excited to have our friends join us for a wonderful afternoon of great company, sushi, and free-flowing libations. The party even continued over to the Lebanese place well into the evening.

|Me and Allison, can you tell who hates sun?|
|People "run" their camels apparently, he is tethered to the spare tire and running along side the SUV...best sight of the day!|

After spending the morning being hot and sweaty, it was decided that it would be best to spend the afternoon poolside, cooling down and relaxing with friends. We lost some friends to this plan and gained others, so it was a nice day spent with many amazing people. Leisure time by the pool was followed by librations in the apartment before the hunger struck us. With that, we descended on this INCREDIBLE Moroccan restaurant "Almaz by Momo" in the mall next door...and the food is SO delicious. We had never experience Moroccan cuisine before, but it is not on our "favorites" list.
