Happy Birthday Chris!

Today we helped celebrate Chris' birthday!

Jackie surprised Chris with a flight lesson first thing in the morning. It took months of planning and secret emails and text messages, but she totally surprised him. We meet up with them at Pomegranate Bistro in Redmond to hear about this flight lessons over brunch.

Chris not only got to fly the plane, but he got to taxi down the runway, take off, and make turns up in the air. Jackie even got to ride in the back of the plane while he fly them from West Seattle, to Salish waterfalls, and back around again. It was pretty exciting to hear all about it!

Happy Birthday Chris!
The food at Pomegranate Bistro was great! Featuring classic comfort foods, the menu was so appetizing. I finally decided on the Pom Benedict and Joel went with the French Toast.
Pom Benedict on toasted scallion cheddar biscuits, poached eggs, and house hollandaise with ham,
with a side of the Old Guilford Mill Stone Ground Grits.
House waffles (it was the special so I don't have a fancy description),
with a side of the rosemary hash brown potatoes.
The layout of the restaurant was pretty interesting. There were large glass windows that you watch the kitchen staff as they worked. It was entertaining to try to guess what they were doing while waiting for our food to arrive. I would definitely recommend stopping by if you are ever in the neighborhood!

After brunch, we headed back the Odell house to hang out for the rest of the afternoon. We played some killer bunnies and enjoyed each other's company. It is always a good time when Chris is around!

Happy Birthday, Chris!
