They Watched the Watchmen

Max and his friends celebrated his upcoming 17th birthday (March 9) last night by ditching the Junior Prom and instead dressing up and going out to a sushi dinner -- all eleven of them -- and then going to see "The Watchmen" on opening night.  Everyone came back here for the birthday cake (baked by Nat, Ned, and me, as usual) and champagne glasses full of orange soda.
