Steve and I were pretty impressed with the kite surfers. They get their kites going and then jump on the boards and take off into the ocean at amazing speeds. Some day, I tell myself, someday. I noticed that most of them looked like older guys, healthy, but at least 50-60 years old. Geof. and I have time..
We went to a park the first day and the air felt so cool and clean. You miss that coming from muggy, hot Richmond. Dayne and Cole were obsessed with little Peggy Sue, the Call's dog. She looks like a little Mexican street dog. She put up with my kids carrying her around by her neck and burying her in the sand, so I think they'll keep her. (; Dayne was in heaven with cousin Daphne braiding and brushing her hair constantly (why is it that anyone and EVERYONE else can comb and style her hair but she screams and cries every time I even get near her hair?!). Each night they all slept with a different cousin. Pure heaven.
Brother in law Steve drove us down to Folsom after our time in the bay area. We spent a day or two with my parents before heading up to WA. Things were warmer our in Folsom and we were able to see my gparents at their home where I have so many wonderful memories, go out to chinese food (a definite family tradition) with them, my parents, and my aunt and uncle, and then skip some rocks with Grandpa George at American River. Oh, and I did get to go to the Sacramento temple. Beautiful. Hm...this just doesn't sound very interesting, does it? Too distracted with my kids running all over the place. Well, enjoy the pics.. Stay tuned for more WA trip details!
