Yesterday I went home to have dinner at my parent’s house. My mom didn’t have much food around the house, so she picked up some steaks and salmon and declared we would have a grill night. I don’t have a grill at my campus house so this was especially nice– grilling just makes me feel like it is summer. I helped my mom choose a recipe for the salmon, and my dad taught me the proper way to grill a piece of fish (you leave the skin on and don’t flip it). What great family bonding time.
Visiting my parents is always nice because it is much nicer there than at my house. They have a grill, air conditioning, unlimited food… a garden…!
This is my brother. I was snapping some pictures around my backyard and this was the only decent picture I managed to get of him. (He is still learning to smile and pose properly for pictures).
