Happy Early Birthday!

Since I'll be in Bulgaria for Galina's birthday, we celebrated it early.  As a new tradition, John and I are going to take each child out to dinner to celebrate their birthday.  Galina loves sushi, so we took Galina to all you can eat sushi. :)
First we took a few pictures to commemorate the day .
Galina is growing up into such a beautiful young lady.  We are so proud of her!

I am not a sushi fan but Galina and John sure are.  I got a kick out of watching them try all the different kinds.  Near the end, I tried one bite of a heart attack.  It is a sushi roll with albacore, cream cheese, and jalapeno deep fried in tempura.  It wasn't too bad.
Galina's favorite was the crab roll.

Galina even got to open her presents early!

Happy 16th birthday to our amazing, outgoing, beautiful, smart daughter Galina!  We love her so!
