.....Brisk beach

Yesterday we all went to the beach. It was a nice family outing and Raquel brought her bf Sammy. We didn't stay long though because it was a bit chilly and the wind picked up, but we had a nice picnic of veggie wraps, hummus, and fruit and then we laid out and took a nap on the sand.

These last two photos are Lina's.

......Ikes place

Ah, San Fransisco, you never cease to provide me with amazing food and good times.
For example, Ikes Place, thee most amazing sandwich place in the world and you know why? Vegan sandwiches!! I received my hot, toasty, and yes melty, vegan Tom Brady sandwich and I was nearly overcome by the sheer heavenly-ness of it. (did I mention they give you free chips and a pop?)
Then we went for a walk in Golden Gate Park and had a fun family day which we then followed up with a Burmese dinner that was wonderfully yummy even to our still overly full tummies. We started with a salad covered with tea leaves imported all the way from Burma, fried garlic, dried bits of lentil, sunflower seeds, and peanuts. Then samosa falafel soup, samosas, this AMAZING coconut rice, wine and garlic broccoli, noodles with chili sauce, some spiced lentil dishes and then they gave us peanut butter cups with the check! :)

Today was such a lovely day that we decided to have a picnic in the backyard. 
We made pasta salad, (vegan for me) and had crisp sweet watermelon slices. 
Then we laid out on a quilt and sunned ourselves like cats.
