Happy Friday! Today Aric, Ashlyn, and I met up with Rich, Millie, and Joyce in Albany for lunch. We met up at the usual Pacific Rim Plaza, and had lunch at Sheng Kee Bakery. It's been a while since we gotten together with Rich and Millie and we had a lot to catch up on.
Rich recently got a Subaru WRX, so the guys talked shop most of the afternoon. After lunch we walked around El Cerrito Plaza ducking into a few stores here and there because the day was rather gloomy, chilly, and drizzly.

Afterwards, we went over to El Cerrito Honda to check out the Pilot. We're just looking, but the salesman was such an arrogant ass so we took off after that.
Thanks to Rich, Millie, and Joyce for a fun day! Can't wait till we get together again! =)

Aric and I made it back in time for dinner at Wil and Tony's. Ivy, Olivia, Aaron, Mayu, and Wing came over. It was a potluck, and the dish I made took very little preparation and cooking time. Dinner was great and we were all stuffed. After dinner we sat around talking and playing UNO. Gawd, I haven't played that in a looooooong time! Wil and I recently got re-introduced to it by Marisa, so we went out a got our own deck of UNO cards. The rules to the game is so simple, but it didn't prevent anyone from asking a million questions. HAHAHA!

Aric and I left around 11:30. We had a really long day and Ashlyn was really tired. Have a great weekend!
