Saturday night was family night. We had been to Madison during the day for all sorts of stuff related to picking out tuxes and getting our engagement photos taken. And after the night we'd had trying to fly to Milwaukee, we were pretty tired after the trip to and from the People's Republic of Madison.

But that wasn't going to prevent us from playing with babies! That's right, Brian and Nikki brought their whole crew over and Meena, Mrs. Roell and I made some dinners.

I got things started with a little wedge salad:
- iceberg
- tomato
- bleu cheese
- bleu cheese dressing
- red onion
- bacon

And Mrs. Roell and Meena finished off the rest with a wonderful beef tenderloin wrapped in bacon and some fantastic fruit salad. Mrs. Roell manned the grill and Meena did most of the chopping for the fruit. Lovely.

At the end of it all, we were treated to some birthday cake in honor of Brian's 29th big day. Mrs. Roell picked up a nice one at Sendiks and had it decorated with some fancy black icing. Very chic.

Anyway, it was a great night full of babies, laughter and grilled meats. I couldn't have asked for a finer Saturday night.
