This past June 6, 2015 Alyss turned 19. Yup. Welcome to adulthood. We started her birthday with a quick trip to Starbucks for coffee, where she got her birthday refresher for free :)
Trevor and I had a lot to do....shopping and getting what we needed for the next day -- the day we would celebrate with the family with a lunch at the condo clubhouse. So we went about doing the errands -- Costco, etc.... it was a full day and we still had dinner plans that night! Trevor wanted to take Alyssa out for her birthday and we all enjoyed dinner at Rogue Wetbar & Kitchen on Broadway. We announced to our waiter that we were celebrating Alyssa's 19th and I told him that I had brought her passport as I.D. as she doesn't have any picture I.D. yet. We didn't have to show it though, as he took our word for it. HA! Alyssa's first legal drink as an adult is below. Behold: Alyssa and her Bellini!
Hmmmm...... this is delicous!!
We had a wonderful dinner to celebrate her entry into adulthood! We wished Jordan and Erika could have joined us, but they had already made plans for that night :(
Now that she is 19, Alyssa is studying the driver's license book in preparation for her test to get her learner's permit. Then she can start practicing again, as she had already started learning with Trevor when visiting Bellingham. The streets there are less congested and not as daunting as the crazy streets of Richmond, B.C.!! Zain just recently passed his test, so now he has license. These kids are growing up way too fast!
The weather this past weekend has been hot, hot, hot! It cools down a bit at night, but I still found it hard to sleep last night. And look at this coming week's weather ?!?!?
Still hot!!! .....look at those temperatures. However, I live in this beautiful city and there are many parks and green areas to enjoy, and the pool at the condo is always available...so I can't complain
Have a great week....be kind and spread joy :)
