Independence day !

This is the first time I celebrate Independence day as an American Citizen. (felt the same as last years though !!). The family spent the weekend in Seattle and Portland with my brother in law, and we all had a great time.

Thanks to the Softee (Microsoftee uncle) and his ever increasing baby sitting skills we had a great time. Went parasailing in Seattle taking turns watching the kids. It was pricey but worth it. You get to be all alone by yourself above the Seattle skyline and get to ponder about the insignificance of your being !! It is in a way like meditation, at 5$ a minute !!!

I wasnt planning on going first, but mommy and grandma had such a great time that they insisted I go. The boat had already returned, but they were nice enough to take the boat out one last time, just for me !!



Managed to take these two pictures with one hand, while clinging on for dear life with the other !





Then we went on to Mother's Bistro (that is another post!) and the Portland Zoo and topped it all off with a whole day of Whale watching in San Juan Islands off the US Canadian Border.. More to come.. stay tuned..
