For Jack's birthday dinner, we went to a local favorite place that specializes in birthdays-- the same place where we had Harry's 2nd B-day party. Only instead of going to the restaurant in the burbs like we did for Harry, we went to the one by campus tonight. I had colloquium and then Ben brought the boys downtown and we met at the restaurant, which is 2 blocks from my office. Would have been as perfect as it sounds, but there was some sort of sporting event, and the places was P A C K E D. We waited for an hour, but the kids were so good. Unbelievably. Ben bribed them with pieces of cheese he had in pockets, which was weird but effective.
Jack really didn't mind the wait-- he made googly eyes at a lot of people in the bar.
Harry was pretty affable when we finally sat down
When Harry's teeny ice cream sundae arrived, he carefully removed the whipped cream then attacked it with a spoon.
Jack sampled his sundae with one tentative finger
Then he dove right in, much to the delight of everyone seated within 3 tables of us-- Jack was a big hit with his fellow diners tonight, which made Harry a little hot under the collar.
Harry declining our request to smile
Jack tried to put his head in a to go box
This is his only bottle of the day now-- I think he'd happily trade it for a sippy, but a sippy just isn't as cute.
And now a prolonged clip of Jack eating his ice cream

Yes, Ben totally picked it up and gave it back to him. Yum.
