week in review (saturday - sunday)

On Saturday I woke up early to get a haircut and then Rachel picked me up so that we could go to Bellevue for dim sum with Elena, Charles, Sam (their 2-week-old baby), and Charles's mom. This was two firsts for me -- meeting Sam (who slept most of the time, as is the custom of the newborn) and having dim sum. Really, I only had a few dishes on account of not wanting to eat random meat products, but there were still a few tasty items. The experience was kind of fascinating, I wondered if the servers worked on commission.

After lunch, we went to Damian's birthday party in Redmond (I think) where his mother had made a huge amount of food. Because we didn't really know any of the other attendees, we raided their games closet and eventually convinced some of the non-Argentinian co-workers to play Settlers of Catan. Without a brick factory, things didn't go particularly well for me, but I pretty much always enjoy playing. By the time the game was over, it was time for cake and there were suddenly a lot of people at the party. Many of them pregnant or with small children.

After I got home, I caught up with Peter at Victrola for a while before calling it an early night.

On Sunday, Betsy, Carolyn, and I made a trip out to the Farm in Snohomish to spend some quality time in the Washington State Corn "maze". It was just about as awesome as last year [lj]. This time, I knew to bring boots to better enjoy the muddy paths.
