Benjie’s Birthday Week

DSC_0913

My first born just turned three!!!

This week was a great week – my family from NYC came to visit for Benjie’s 3rd birthday, which we celebrated during the Victoria Day long weekend. The weather was pretty awesome with very minimal rain in forecast so we got to go around and check out some places my Mom, Kester and Linda have never been. We actually got to eat at this fish & chips spot near Granville Island/False Creek called Go Fish.

As the day went by, there’s this special saying – Great food brings in great company. So we headed to a nearby Chinese dim sum place in Willowbrook called Luxe. We’ve been here several times, but my brother specifically requested this place again so that kinda tells you how good this place is.

As the birthday week continues, the day finally arrives for Benjie’s 3rd Birthday party. We celebrated his “Curious George”-themed party at Captain Kid’s Fun Centre. Here’s a look back to that day and other random shots through the past week:

Skagit Tulip Festival

We finally made it to the annual tulip festival and checked out the most amazing, vibrant colors of this tulip farm in Tulip Town, located in Skagit, Washington. The sight is definitely one magnificent view, even my pictures can’t do justice and you have to be there to believe it. Enjoy the photos of our family day out before heading to downtown Seattle.
