It's been a while since I've posted, so this ought to cover the last 3 or 4 weeks... sorry for the excessive scrolling! Brent and I met in Sierra Madre for a weekend back in March - it's a good halfway point between Santa Cruz and Las Vegas, and he had a cycling stage race in San Dimas. We of course hit all of our favorite spots... Taco Lita, the pub for a cold one and cottage pie, Bean Town for chai lattes, and Dad and Kim's cozy cottage living room complete with a warm fire.Mom and Kathy happened to be camping down in Dana Point that same weekend, so we drove down to spend the afternoon on the beach with them... Brent and I were both very happy to see Parkerboy. Don't they look studly together? :)
...and I enjoyed smelling Kim's freshly blooming sweet peas. I always say Dad and Kim's house in Sierra Madre is the only place I go where I don't spend the whole time wishing I was back in my cottage. It's truly a home away from home.
Back at the homestead things are just about the same. Lots of farmers market goodies...
We had an enchilada party at Steve and Maggie's casa with my favorite Johannes-es (and plenty of tequila)
