today is ray's birthday. we went to lunch at dukes in malibu to celebrate. i love going to dukes. they have the best view of the ocean, and it is really laid back. the food is simple. nothing fancy. i had a super yummy shrimp and crab salad. mason loved watching the waves. it was so nice to go in the middle of the week when it is not crowded. i was sad to leave. i love people waiting on me. ahh. nice.
we went back to jen and ray's house for champagne and chocolate cake. yum. i love this birthday tradition. mason was so excited to have cake and ice cream. no champagne for him. happy birthday ray.
