Out to Dinner

Rachel is over, visiting from England. She is originally from New Zealand, a Kiwi, but now lives in England with her partner, Ade. She work at a design agency and he does computer work, don't ask me what, I am illiterate to all that. She is such a fun and vibrant person. Really lights up a room. I always saw her user name and thought that she must really like the kiwi fruit or the color. So of coarse I asked and she told me that all people from New Zealand are called Kiwis. You learned something new everyday.
We decided to take her out to eat and Luci immediately thought of Sakura. It's a Japanese Steak House. We absolutely love eating there. The atmosphere is awesome and out cook was hilarious. We have taken the kids in the past and they love the fire and the show. As I was sitting there I realized that I am just like them, the food is awesome but I go for the show. LOL
It was funny, Rachel has a big nice cannon camera with the huge lens, looks like a professional. She asked the cook if he minded her taking pictures. He said it was fine but that he hoped he didn't break the camera. So she is shooting away and I reach into my purse and pull out my little canon camera, when you looked at us both, I looked like I was in training and couldn't handle a big camera yet. LOL I guess I am, I am slowly working my way up. It stinks though, about the time I get a camera figured out and can work it properly, it's time to get a new one and I am fumbling all over again. I need to get out my owner's manual.
We had a great time and I hope we get to do it again before she leaves to go back home.
