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.
