Rob and Mina's Wedding

Yesterday we were able to go to our friend Rob's wedding. I have known Rob for 10 years. We met when we took Genetics 334 together and then started working together as RA's at UBC. Gary actually got to know him better when Rob worked at our school for several years. Rob is such a good friend to me, he's one of those guys that you can talk to like a girl ya know? His is very sensitive, understanding and caring. Oh ya, he is also the funniest person that I know. I am very thankful for having him in my life. I am so happy for him and it was an absolutely beautiful wedding. Mina is a fabulous girl and they are a fantastic team. Her last name was already Kim, so she doesn't even have to change it! There were some great speeches which had me laughing A LOT! It was great to see old UBC friends and just celebrate such a wonderful occassion.
Between the wedding and reception, Gary and I drove out to West Van to go the Salmon House for lunch. I had a some salmon and Gary had tuna and it was YUMMY! It was to celebrate our birthdays this month, so it was nice to do so with food. I guess the proper names for our dishes where: Seared 'House Rubbed' BC Coho Salmon with scalloped yams, meyer lemon apricot glaze, and purple mustard vinaigrette. Gary's was Tograshi Chili Albacore Tuna Nicoise seared rare, with new potato, haricot vert, and olives.
Here's a picture of Kai proudly showing off his brother or sister. He def. understands that the baby has to stay in mommy's belly because its growing. He wants to play ball with the baby when its born:)
Here's Gary teaching Kai how a baby is born. Sort of. I love our son, he is absolutely amazing to me. Also, Gary is an amazing match for me. I have realized that we have been together way too much these past 2 months but if I have to be with anyone for 2 months straight, it would def. be him. I hope he'd say the same:) I think it may be healthy for our marriage to have more time apart. I don't know of another couple that is together as much as we are. It's not on purpose, its just that we work together and are both introverted.
Well, I'm going to have a nap! Our neighbours new basement suite renters were ridiculously loud OUTSIDE last night til 1:30am...grrr...the downfall of this neighbourhood!
