D'Anne celebrated her birthday with family at her favorite eatery - Benihana Restaurant in Dallas. The food is great. But the showmanship is, in the words of the children, "awesome!"

James and Elizabeth tried to master the chopsticks. Lizzie got pretty good at it, while James thought the sticks made a cool sort of sword. William, Weston and Evellyn came along with their Mom to join in the celebration.
