I'm home now and will be here until the 26th. Wanna hang out?
My sister and her family are here right now too. Thomas is here and has so far been really excited to see me, which is a pleasant change from our previous meetings. He's right smack dab in the middle of the terrible two's, so it's a big operation keeping up with him. As a result, I think my parents are sleeping about 11 hours a day.
This weekend Allan was in town, and with Shankar now a postdoc at UBC, we got together and had a grand old time about Vancouver. I took them around the Seawall and to Granville Island, as well as to the fireworks. Yesterday we went to Deep Cove and walked around Robson a bit. Good times. The most important parts for me though were taking them to Jiro, so that they can describe first-hand the experience to our friends in Berkeley, and taking them to Japadog, which was also my first time. I had a great time, and they claim to as well, but I wouldn't be surprised if they later look back on that weekend as just eating a whole lot of Japanese food. Which, honestly, is how I prefer to think of Vancouver myself.
