A summary

Right then. I have been neglecting this blog. Can I offer excuses like being busy? Lots of travel for work lately? Other stuff getting in the way? Too many video games on the go? Connie still manages to post great stuff on an almost daily basis so I am being feeble here. But enough of that. I just pulled a bunch of photos from my phone so here goes:

This was almost a month ago now but still worth mentioning. The annual Spot Prawn Boil, usually at Refuel but now by it's successor, The Fat Dragon. Fresh spot prawns cooked with chinese sausage, bamboo shoots, baby corn, cabbage and other delectables. Dumped onto the table for hands-on devouring. Brilliant.

We squeezed in a quick weekend visit to LA to see our old friends Tim and Jo. Connie elaborated on this one here. This is a picture from one of our many delectable cafe visits:

Next up, a visit to the new 49th Parallel & Lucky's doughnuts location on 13th & main. Coffee and doughnuts done to a high level of quality. I had a salted caramel covered doughnut as well as a pistachio-orange doughnut. So good...

One of Vancouver's premium car dealers, Weissach, hold these 'coffee and cars' events every month in the summer. People get together at Spanish Banks, park their cars and well, geek out over them. Kai and I like to go to check out the fancy cars. The last visit didn't disappoint with a Lamborghini Aventador present:

Amazing car.

During a business trip to Redmond I treated myself to dinner at John Howie Steak in Bellevue. They had deep-friend bacon...I couldn't resist...it was interesting but so overwhelmingly rich that I probably won't order it again.

I took Kai to Lucky's Doughnuts, needless to say it was a success!

Lastly, a painfully bad picture of Kai's big science project at school. I bet Connie has better ones on her blog. The project was about a week's worth of work, a scale model of Jupiter and a board full of facts and information, collected and written by Kai. He certainly worked hard on this one:

That's about it! Three weeks worth of stuff in a single post. I'll try to be a bit more diligent in the future. The parents arrive this week and things will be busy so who knows. I do have a road trip planned, another 3 day sojourn into the BC interior. That will be later in July but I am already very much looking forward to that one!
