What an exciting Father's Day I got to celebrate with my Daddy! I got to go to Redmond (Russia) home of Bears, Tsars and Dostoyevsky. But more importantly I appreciated meeting Vladlena.
The great thing was, I was able to ingratiate myself to her entire family fairly quickly. Despite the broken English everyone appreciates the universal language of Toddler, just start talking about Dinosaurs and all cultural and language barriers disappear. Sad people didn't realize this during the Cold War.
After that we went to celebrate Father's Day at the Marymoor Park Beer Festival . . .
