One Hot Summer Weekend

So it was one hot weekend to be sure. 90′s in Seattle? No thanks.

On Friday I took a ferry home to my parents house and spent the evening with family. I made cupcakes my cousins. Or rather, ate cupcakes my cousins made. My Dad even busted out the sparkling cider for the ocassion, hah. It was a nice chill night in PO. (Albeit I was panicky at first with nothing to do before cousin Mia showed up. ;))

The West Wing - The Complete Second SeasonSaturday I went to my Kung Fu studio early in the morning. This is the second weekend I’ve commuted back for class after almost a two-year hiatus. I finally decided to take one course there this summer: Knife Defense. It’s been very challenging but fun…we’ll see how this quarter goes. Afterward I went home to have lunch with my parents before taking a ferry back to Seattle. Once there, I met up with Ryan and we went geocaching! It was a lot of fun, but soon we were hot, exhausted, and hungry. We ended up going to Rusty Pelican in Wallingford for a pasta dinner and ended the night watching West Wing. We’re finishing up Season 2 right now. (No spoilers, please.)

On Sunday we went out to dim sum @ Purple Dot for Ryan’s birthday. (See previous entry.) And then left with Darrin and Bree to Safeco to watch the Red Sox game. It was our first game in sunny weather so that was really nice and our shade in the stands was great. So were the garlic fries. The game was actually the best we’ve seen so far and they actually won this time, so double plus. We had to leave a bit early though to return to the car, although it was starting to get wicked hot where we were anyway. Afterward we went on a Costco run and I got a haircut (which was refreshing after a day under the blazing sun). Later that afternoon we ended up getting some Red Robin to go and watched s’more West Wing. Good stuff.

Then Monday was Ryan’s real birthday (and a golden birthday at that) so we made use of his new grill and had a pretty sweet steak dinner, complete with potatoes, grilled corn on the cob, salad, and lava cakes. It was muy fantastico.

Now the weather’s thankfully cooled down. I have a feeling I’m going to melt though when I go to MN next week!

    Sounds like you had a fun weekend. I can’t take anymore M’s games though. Every game I’ve been to this year, they’ve been shut out! It’s quite a streak I got going. Purple Dot is open late so it’s a great place to hit up after a late night of partying on the town. Their Portugese Baked Chicken tastes pretty damn good at 3 in the morning.

  1. Geocaching huh? interesting!
