SAPA SUSHI BAR & ASIAN GRILL

IMG_5928-2

Our good friends in our ward, the Nelsons, are moving 😦 Can’t tell you how sad we are!  We are going to miss them so much! So, we obviously had to have one more Sapa night.

 (Family style of course)

It’s a great value and it’s good.  what more can you ask for?

NOT PICTURED: the two vegas rolls we scarfed down at the beginning. oops.

My father went to Japan on his LDS mission.  From that i’ve grown a love for Yaki Soba Noodles.  I love them because they have a grilled/crispy texture.  Add chicken to it!! SO GOOD.

Capitol Croquet

The Capitol building has acted as a backyard since we’ve lived downtown.  There have been numerous occasions where we’ve need some grass for picnics, star gazing, and of course croquet matches.  It has a gorgeous view and plenty of space.  It’s quickly becoming one of my favorite places in the city.  Fortunately, the capitol is barely one minute away from our apartment!

If anyone wants to play a friendly/really competitive game of croquet give us a call.

thanks for playing today julia & lance
