Sunny in SLO

We made it! After a mostly-uneventful 11 hour trip (with connections, and our trip from San Francisco to Chico was delayed by about an hour and a half due to fog), we landed at Cami's parents Tuesday afternoon a bit tired, but otherwise no worse for wear. We went by Grandpa's store on the way to the house and let everyone say hi. It's so good to be here! Everybody's so excited! The kids were up until around 9:30 local time -- well after midnight by their internal clocks, having been up since around 4:30 am Eastern. They're troopers... Wednesday was pretty kick-back -- a chance to recoup a bit. Cami and the kids went out shopping for stuff for Sarah's wedding before going to see Ratatouille -- which gained rave reviews from our 4- and 7-year old critics. Meanwhile, I got in my 3rd-ever round of golf -- a.k.a. "wack-a-ball". (I won't divulge my score so as not to embarass those I played with -- or mostly myself... I think I was 10 when I played my first round; my second, a couple years ago with Bud.)

Darienne has (re-)discovered the piano at Grandma and Grandpa's. Whenever she's not playing video games or check out the momma and baby deer out in the back yard, she's been playing. Might be time for piano lessons... So then yesterday we rented a car (a new Dodge Charger -- Darienne liked that it is a "jazzy blue") and drove about 7+ hours down to Sarah & Kristin's new house in SLO. The beautiful coastal weather immediately had Cami and I sitting back saying "um, so why aren't we living down here?" It's just wonderful... Tonight, we get to go visit with Jill and Patrick and their kids Connor and Katherine. (They were a fellow RD family before moving out here, and good friends whom we miss dearly...) We can't wait to catch up a bit with them!
