The Weekend

On Friday night, we had dinner with The Parents.  Dave's dad had been up to Juneau on the ferry and had spent a couple of days checking in with people and places in Alaska.  We ate some family-caught red snapper and got the report from his trip.  They also came over for a visit on Sunday.

There was brunch at a barn on Saturday morning - eight former Alaskans eating quiche and fresh sausage and swapping stories. 

The teenage boys opted for a Nerf war - a Humans vs. Zombies event at Washington Park.  We fed them later at a waterfront restaurant opened this week by our neighbors.  How did they find the time to open a full service restaurant in six weeks when they already run a huge catering business and two other restaurants?  The liquor license alone would take forever.  We are friends because our kids are friends.  The two women are a college chemistry teacher and an engineer; the men are Naval officers.  We had great conversations all day and the boys had deep-fried Twinkies.
