Here we are halfway through summer. To entertain ourselves we have engaged in a myriad of activities. We went gold panning a couple times over on the the raging river. While we didn't strike it rich, we did find a couple specks of gold. Katrina and my younger sister, Hayley, had lots of fun in the water trying to catch fish in the river.
Other days have been spent looking after my garden (including corn, pumpkins, zucchini, nappa cabbage, bok choy, beans, peas, peppers, onions, cucumber, ect.), playing with Hayley's chickens, ducks, and goats and going on walks.
Eric, Sharn, and Sharn's sister Sarah came up for the Fourth of July and we ended up hanging out with them and the Wan's going around Seattle and eating. We had lots of fun. We also celebrated my birthday, a little late, with mint chip ice cream cake. Yum.
And just this weekend we went to the Bon Odori in the International District. We got in and did a couple dances with fans, ate some yummy food and took in the atmosphere. This was our second year attending and we hope to continue making it our tradition.
