Amit's Birthday Bash - Part 1

More like bashes... as in more than one. (Yes, Amit really is that loved!)

On Friday, Amit's actual birthday, we headed to the Keyes house. Abby's third birthday was on Thursday so we had to have a little celebration for the two of them. Silly me, I forgot to bring my camera. Tamsen made us pad thai. Delicious! It was like we were at a restaurant, she's an amazing cook. We will definitely be making pad thai night a regular occurrence. I had fun helping make some chocolate butterflies while the boys played Wii. You can see the cake here. Thanks again, Tamsen!!

Now on to day 2 of our 3 day celebration. On Saturday afternoon we headed to Hartford, CT, which was the closest BWW to Boston.
On our drive out, the skies look nasty...
but Amit didn't care. 
He loves storm clouds!
After checking in to the hotel, we headed to the restaurant.
He was so happy! 
(It was bright, so he drove with his eyes shut.)
We played some trivia while we waited for our food.
His friends picked names so that the scoreboard looked like this...
(Flea was not one of us... He was our enemy. Still don't know who he was.)
Before we knew it, our wings were here!
Amit got 24. Then ate 2 of my boneless.
Time to dig in!
He also tried a habanero wing (bringing him to 27 wings total)...
Unfortunately it wasn't as spicy as we thought.
(We were hoping for a funny face!)
If the hat fits, wear it.
Here is the BU crew that drove all the way to CT for some wings.
Thanks guys, you totally made his birthday!
Amit and Seth had special hats.
(Too bad I didn't get a picture of Seth stomping his feet when his hat blew away,
he did run after it and caught it, so it was okay.)
(Amit is also very happy after several beers - too funny!)
Oh BWW - how we love you!
After the rest of the crowd headed back to Boston, we headed out to a bar. Amit was super excited. We ended up going to the same bar where Derrick had danced with Amit on his shoulders, but that's a story for another time. Amit had a few more drinks, enjoyed hanging with a couple of his UConn Dental friends, and danced. A lot. When he's had some drinks he gets crazy about his dancing, its too funny! Too bad I didn't get any pictures of it. He stole my camera and took a few shots. So here they are.
He and Seth wanted a picture of Kirsten smiling...
so here she is laughing at them. 
He also took a picture of us girls... 
Liz (3rd year at BU), me, and Kirsten.
This photo is so much nicer than the one with Seth's hand in it!
After all the fun at the bar, we headed back to the hotel. We were exhausted. Here's some proof:
Kirsten looks ready for bed.
 Totally unrelated - check out the welt that Dee gave Amit 
during paintball. She shot him in the back before she realized who he was.

And then I realized that I hadn't taken a picture of just me and the birthday boy... So here it is.

After all that photo fun, we headed to bed... Had to get our rest so that we could enjoy Newport the next day. Yep, we celebrated Amit's birthday over three days in three different states!
