Hanami!

| | Comments (0)
After we got back from Japan I decided it would be super awesome to have a hanami in our front yard this year when our weeping cherry was in bloom.  It was indeed, super awesome :)

Had our Japan travelling friends - Nat and Andrew, Natty and Sandra over and ate lots and were quite merry.
Had a brilliant day for it.  If anything a little too hot heh.  There was even this storm that came through *after* we'd finished up.

This random dog turned up and stayed all of lunch.  No idea where it came from - never seen it before!  It was very friendly but kept threatening to steal the food ;)

The food - sooo much food!  Lots of leftovers!

After lunch we played Trivial Pursuit.  We actually started with my very lame 80s trivial pursuit (which wouldn't have been so lame had any of us actually not been just kids in the 80s), but switched over to "real" Trivial Pursuit.  Lots of fun.  I think Stu won :)

And then everyone went home.  And I got depressed cause I had to come down off somewhat of a high :(

But then we watched this cool documentary on Yellowstone National Park, and followed that with Fantasia 2000.  Really must get myself a copy of that Bluray some time.  Except for the very minor detail that we don't have a Bluray player .. hrmmm.

And so endeth the weekend.
