Another HOT HOT day! When Aric and I slipped out for some ice cream, it was over 100 degrees outside! We spent a nice lazy day just hanging out at home with my parents.

Tonight my mom, sisters, and I hosted a huge dinner banquet in celebration of my dad's Hole-In-One. Usually if you hit a Hole-In-One, you're supposed to (but not required to) buy your friends or golf club members a round of drinks. But my family likes to take things to the next level...we invited about 150 of my parents' closest friends for dinner at China Stix (the same restaurant Aric and I had our wedding banquet in Santa Clara). It kinda felt like a wedding. We had seating arrangements, flowers, dj, speeches, toasts, dinging on glasses, and parting gifts/favors. The only thing that made it different from a wedding was the attire....everyone was encouraged to dress in a Hawaiian/Tropical theme (basically anything loud). hehehe =)
