Busy Weekend

Last weekend we had an extremely busy but fun weekend. we were all ramped up to go to the opening of the new Academy of Science in Golden Gate Park, but when we got there it was sold out. bummer. We decided to stroll around nearby Hayes Valley and as soon as we parked the car, we saw our friend Bryant walking up to us. Bryant moved to Philly about a year ago, and was in town for a few hours during a long layover from Vancouver! None of us could believe our luck that we would run into each other. It was so nice to have a drink with him before he left for the airport. That's him in the picture above, drinking a comically huge latte.

Later on Saturday we celebrated our friend Ed's birthday at a BBQ at his apartment. Ed and Ineka have a video game called Rock Band, which I know will need no introduction for about half of our 6 readers. For those who are unfamiliar with it, it's like karaoke but with instruments that you get to play too. The photo above is Isaac rocking out until late into the night. :)

On Sunday everyone at the previous night's party decided to meet up at Folsom Street fair, a yearly San Francisco institution where S&M meets street fair. There were naked people who probably shouldn't have been naked. It was not sexy. But it was interesting, and Ed and Ineka had German friends in town who had fun taking lots of pictures that they won't be able to show their family back home. Sunday night we had dinner with our Indiana friend Rachel whose folks were in town (her dad fixed my car brakes in college, shout out Steve and Cathy!). overall an exhausting but fun and event packed weekend! I'm off to take a nap......
