Today is Kevin’s 24th Birthday.
One of our little family traditions is that every year on each child’s birthday, they get to pick a restaurant and we go out to dinner.
Since we lost Kev, we pick a restaurant for him and go out as a family.
Tonight we went out to Fire and Ice in Cambridge. Kev had talked about going there with his friends, I don’t know if he ever made it, but he’d been planning on it. For those of you who haven’t been, it’s a concept restaurant where you pick food from a “market” along with spices and sauces and then it is cooked on an open flattop. It was pretty good. Drew and I seemed to have a knack for it (It’s all in the spice and sauce combo).
There was another “birthday” party in the restaurant and they brought out a cake and candles and sang happy birthday.
Right at that moment I focused in on the music playing and turned to Lisa.
“Do you hear the song?”
Do You Remember by Jay Sean was just starting to play on the loop.
I think Kev appreciated our choice this year.
