This is Charlie's brother, Rob. His birthday was August 3rd. We had a great time celebrating his birthday with the family. We first went to Nonna in Dallas. Great, fresh Italian food. Nina (his fiancee) surprised him with a birthday cake for dessert. It was made by the same bakery that will do their wedding cake in October. It was chocolate cake with Kaluha icing in the center. It was divine! Little does I think he know that Nina had even called ahead to make sure they could have his favorite dish on the menu that night. It is the type of place that has a menu that changes almost daily.
The Heavenly Cake
After dinner, Nina had arranged for all of his friends to meet at a bar in Dallas. Charlie's dad suggested that we all go out for a drink after dinner since it was still early and Rob fell hook, line, and sinker. Nina did a great job arranging it all because he was surprised and ecstatic to see all of his friends there. He made the comment several times during the night that all of his favorite people were there and how great that was. Fun times!
