Let's Go Near the Water

Came to Deer Lake on early Saturday afternoon.

We'll do Kayaking here.

It's Fiona's first time.

And his second time.

Wow, it's far away from the shore already.

" Yay, we are almost reaching the other side of lake!!"

"Yeah right, I'm doing most of the work."

A lot of water lilies, kinda pretty.

See dragonfly too?

Nothing but relaxing, he wishes he could bring snack and wine with him.

Okay, U-turn.

Fiona was hot and tired, but she enjoyed her first experience.

Late afternoon, came to North Delta to see our friends.

Nice to know a family whose house has a swimming pool.

But need to warm up first, the water is pretty cold.

And he jumped...

Sooooo ****ing cold!!

It's dinner time, Oden in summer!!

But it warmed us up good.

That was one sweet Saturday

The First Good Times

Kenneth and Taddy, looking at USS Shoup.

We went to Naval Station Everett in Seattle for Ship Tour on July 3rd.

Before that, had breakfast in our favorite diner.

He is curious about everything.

Love their potato pancake, sooooo good!!

That's USS Abraham Lincoln behind.

On the deck now.

The key, please.

Top Gun!!

Hey, watch out...

Another tour for USS Shoup.

Kenneth with daddy.

In front of the destroyer.

After long waiting, we finally got inside the ship.

It's Japanese flag up there.

Peeping Tom.

Yes, he is the MAN.

She uses only two fingers to control the ship.

Feels unreal to see this.

We normally see this kind of thing from movie or TV.

These stairs are unbelievably steep.

After going down several levels, we reached CIC. It's out of the world cool. Too bad, photos are not allowed.

Yes, the size matters.

Dinner at the Crab Pot.

"Order in the Court."

This is how they serve the feast.

4th of July:

David and Taddy went to a shooting range.

Only one target was bought.

Masking tape indicates shots done by the first shooter.

First time for Taddy to hold and fire a real gun.

Aiming the target.

Bullets on the floor.

It's still hot!!

What an experience!

Driving along the beach.

After dinner, went to down town Bellevue for fireworks.

First time for Kenneth to see real fireworks.
