It was special to go to Platinum Suites in Banani with my good friend for their breakfast buffet!  The buffet included omelets, beef bhuna, chicken sausage, pancakes, sauteed potatoes, alu bhuna, conjee soup and other items.

While the parents were at the hospital Candace and Chayla spent 36 hours with us!  I took them to a tea stand on our street and then to a playing field near our apartment building.  I kind took the place of their real Grandpas as best as I could. Their little brother, Carver Tate was born at 9:07 pm on June 25.

I couldn’t resist taking another sunset shot at this location.  I’m almost sure I took a shot here three weeks ago and likely a year ago as well. I love this flood plain for sunset photos.
