Gerry and Val Get Married
Olivia and I went to San Diego last weekend for Gerry and Val's wedding at Mission Beach. What a great time!

We got there Wednesday night and enjoyed some late night dining at Saska's. Even though we were quite hungry, everything we ordered there was great from the raw oysters to the calamari strips to the crab chowder and rare ahi tuna steak. Oh yeah, the garlic bread was really good, too.

Thursday morning was the golf outing, but not before hitting up Roberto's Taco Shop, which is apparently a Mission Beach institution.
After some bacon, egg, potato, and cheese burrito, and hibiscus flower tea (Olivia had a torta and tamarind juice), it was off to Mission Trails Golf Course for a round of golf.

Golfing was great, and it also included a BBQ lunch, a couple drinks, and some prizes. I got to meet a bunch of Gerry's friends and Val's relatives, and everyone was really nice.
We followed that up with some soondubu chigae at some Korean place by Gerry's house, then wrapped up the night for another big day Friday.

Friday morning we went to the beach again for a little while before hitting the sloshball BBQ at Sunset Point Park. Note the beer bong wrapped around Jojo's neck - he was pretty much married to it all afternoon.
Jersey also had so much fun that he had to nap it off at the base of a palm tree.Sloshball was a lot of fun, and the BBQ was a huge success with lots of people coming to eat and celebrate.

The wedding rehearsal was later that afternoon.

After that, dinner was at Jasmine Chinese seafood restaurant.
The food was pretty good. As usual, Tom drank too much.
The rest of the cousins went to Gerry's place to play mafia after dinner, but Olivia and I were tired (and had to drive some parents back to the hotel) so we called it a night.

Saturday was another opportunity to hit the beach before the wedding.
Before that, though, we went to National City where there was a Filipino strip mall with bakeries, a grocery, and ChowKing - great Filipino food.

The wedding was great, and it was a lot of fun being a part of it.
Here's a little clip toasting to my brother and Val.

Everyone there had a great time, and I can't wait for the next wedding in November.
