I may have mentioned it in the past, but late April/early May is birthday season for my family. My sisters and I all have birthdays within 15 days of one another (April 26th, May 1st, May 6th). This year we really just wanted to spend a celebratory day together so we went to an early bird showing of Water for Elephants (so good!) then drove to San Mateo for lunch at Pasta Primavera.

As most of you know, I've never been one to turn down Italian food so this little lunch was perfect. I can never resist ravioli but the tiramisu for dessert was the icing on the cake (or rather... the cocoa powder on the tiramisu...). I think it's been a while since we've gone out to eat with just the four of us, but sitting and sharing bites of everything always comes naturally. We are sisters,* after all.

*Technically, Kristine (bottom left) is our cousin, but we always include her in our "sister activities."
