May Visits

May was the month of parents and guys.

Brian and Ben came to visit during Memorial Day weekend. It was a guys’ weekend, and although I tried my best, there’s just no way I can keep up with their drinking abilities. Last weekend Adam came for a visit. Poor guy, brought his sweater (it’s 50 degrees in Seattle!) and ended up in the sweltering weather that punished NY this weekend.

On Sat night we met up with my friend Corinne, who was here on a work trip from Seattle
