The long weekend was pretty good. Because our new family friend Sheila and her partner Jeff recently had us over for dinner, my parents figured there was no better time to return the favor. Mom also invited Howard's family as we really enjoyed their company last time. The dinner on Saturday was lots of fun, especially with all the food. You can go here for the pictures.
I spent most of Sunday listening to online lectures. There wasn't much else to do besides play RuneScape and Angry Birds Epic during breaks. However, yesterday was nice as we went hiking near Woodside. The plan was to go to Half Moon Bay afterwards, but the heat made us change our minds. The rest of the day was uneventful, although I watched The Amazing Spider-Man 2 on the Amazon Fire TV after dinner. The action was intense!
Summer in review
All in all, this summer was incredible. July began with a visit from my aunts Jill and Yu-Hua. Dad took all of us to Reno and Tahoe just after they arrived. The five of us went to Pasadena for Connie's wedding two weeks later. Seeing my cousin get married to the love of her life made for wonderful memories.
August began with the annual Lab126 family picnic and the party at Sheila's house. That was followed by a field trip to San Francisco with Henry's film club. The LAHS reunion was great too. Then there's this weekend. Just because I had to work didn't mean we didn't have fun!
In other news...
I recently joined the World Financial Group's money management program at the recommendation of Min, my former supervisor at Cisco. The classes cover topics related to personal finance and are pretty useful.
