Long day!

Today was a very long day. It began with our going to church services at 8:30 this morning with our daughter and son-in-law. We left Merced about 10:00 for Santa Rosa to visit our son and daugher-in-law. It has been about a year and a half since that group was last together.

We enjoyed a delightful afternoon, most of which was spent sitting around a backyard table, eating, chatting, and watching the children play. I especially liked seeing our children being able to talk and enjoy each other. Because of living across the country from each other, that is a rare occurence.

At about 7:00 PM we left to take Angela and Derrek to a hotel in Burlingame, near San Francisco International. It is always sad to drop them off, but we’re already planning the next gathering.
