Ryan and family stayed some extra time and included a lot more activities. Above is our trip to the tidepools. So much good stuff to be found!
We had our traditional bounce house, and after the bouncing tired everyone, Jake read stories to the kids inside.

We also went to Rose Hills to visit Ted's grave after the new headstone had just been placed.

The Briggs and the Bosleys gather for a picture after the blessing. Missing are Jon's family, whose son Matthew was sick, so only Jon could come, and Andrew's family, being so far away. But we missed you! Afterwards we all came to the Bosleys for dinner and enjoyed Stacy's famous recipes.

Here are some cute pictures of Andrew and Maren's family in NC. Such a fun visit!

My trip to North Carolina was so much fun! It's such a beautiful place and it was really fun to see those cute grandkids again. Nate is a great walker now--usually in the wrong direction, as he was pretty shy around me. He did warm up about the time I had to leave.

Ivy is NOT shy. She has a darling, sparkly smile which she flashes most of the time, especially when she has done something she might get in trouble for. It works every time!

Hyde still has those great eyes and is soooo cute. He LOVES the Wii. We can get him to do most any chore if the reward is to play the Wii or the "compuder."

Will shows such a warm, caring personality. He is old enough to show his intelligence and young enough to ask the darndest questions.
Hi from California! I'm not sure if I'm up to this new tech stuff, but why not. Thanks to Maren and Andrew I now have this blog. I hope I can publish a few things that will be of interest for you to look at periodically. What a challenge!
