on sunday, we celebrated my dad's 70th birthday a little early!
his birthday is actually the 12th, which is almost always smack in the beginning/middle of the lychee harvest, so he's always so busy working on his 14 acres. this year, we scheduled it so that we could actually celebrate it and let him relax. as it was, he was still apparently grumpy that he should have been cutting the grass. close friends, family, delicious sushi and bottle upon bottle of wine made the lack of work and heat and sweat just a little bit better.
