Celebrating two events

Maria and Lisa decided to treat me and David to a belated Mother’s and Father’s Day dinner at CPK (California Pizza Kitchen).  It was very nice of them to do that.  I enjoy these family gatherings, because they soothe my soul and bring much happiness.

Here are some family photos to record the event:

Maria and Julia.  My granddaughter proudly showed me her two new adult teeth.  Her dentist had extracted four baby teeth (bottom front) and made the whole procedure painless by administering laughing gas:

Grant and Rylan.  While Maria and Grant were in Japan for two weeks in June, Rylan cried almost every night, because he missed his parents.  He and Julia had been staying with Grant’s parents.  You can imagine how happy he was when he saw his mom and dad at last:

Lisa and Elvin.  Her new boyfriend seems pleasant and easy going:

Me and David.  We always know how to have a good time.  I don’t know why my lips look so red in this photo, because I don’t wear lipstick:

David and I ordered the Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Pizza.  Always a favorite, because it contains pineapple:

Our waitress took this photo:

Finally, these are the omiyagi (gifts) that Maria and Grant gave me and David after their trip to Japan (Mt. Fuji chocolates and two pads of paper, designed by Japanese artists).  Mahalo, Maria and Grant:

And thank you, Maria and Lisa, for a splendid Mother’s and Father’s Day dinner! Your parents love you!
