Birds... and a cousin come to visit.

This week sure has gone by fast!
I can't believe we are going home
on Saturday already!
This morning we were
entertained by the blue jays
that congregate outside the 
dining room window.

My Dad loves to feed 'his'
birds...he throws peanuts
out to them every morning.

I did some running around
with Adam, helping him 
get some things straightened out
at the CA DMV. That's 
always a pleasant way to spend the day!

When we got home to my parents
house, my cousin Kalene came a bit later.
She drove up from Morro Bay to visit.
She's a hoot :-)

After dinner, we took a trip
into town, and walked
through 'The Streets of Bethlehem'.
The First Baptist Church puts
on an amazing recreation of 
the birth of Christ.
There were sets recreating different
scenes of the journey to Bethlehem.
It was pretty incredible.

On the way back to their house,
we stopped off where my son
works as a barista. He
treated us all to specialty 
coffees, yum!

We all had a fun night!


  1. Yes, that week sure flew by. Don't they always when you are having such fun.

  2. Laurie and George,
    Now that you are in CA, will you be any where near Sacramento in your travels? I sure would love to meet you if you're in the area.

  3. Glad you have had such a nice visit with family.

  4. Sorry I couldn't meet up with Merikay or Susan this trip :-(
    When we come out & visit family it's so hard to see everyone, I even
    have family in Bakersfield I didn't get to see this time.

    We will be back next time - in October 2011, to get married!!

  5. Wow, what a great looking trio, Ted, Leanne and Kalene. They are soooooo photogenic. Had a great time visiting. Looking forward to next October....

  6. Hit any Walmarts while you were there? ;)
    That website MADE MY DAY!! Not that I'm a fashionista or anything, but at least I make sure I match when I go there :) :)

    Love the Journey to Bethlehem you got to see! That would definitely get you in the Christmas spirit!

  7. Great pix of the Christmas story, how cool it was done by real people (that guy with the wings was human, not an angel, right?).
