VACATION'S OVER

My family has been visiting me since June 8th.  What a great time.  We took a road trip up to Northern California to see cousins near Sacramento and across the Bay Bridge to see more cousins near San Francisco.  We stopped in to Saratoga for lunch with my dear friend, Sue; and showed the Grands the house Mom grew up in. We had a side jaunt to Morro Bay, a favorite spot and even took the kids to Bob's Big Boy.  Kalani, my 8-year old grandson, ate a cheeseburger at each restaurant we visited.  And, like all good grandsons will say, Grandma made the best cheeseburger (I think it was the guacamole).
Uncle Rich and Aunt Janet managed to visit from Utah and Idaho last weekend.

Lauren, my 15 year-old granddaughter asked me if we would be able to make it to Ruby's since it IS tradition.  So, yesterday we had lunch at Ruby's on Seal Beach Pier. Ruby's makes the BESTEST milkshakes.

Today they are on their way back to Florida.  Sigh............................... :-(

Think I'll take the rest of the day off and quilt tomorrow.  Noelle, age 4 designed a quilt on her Leapster and asked that I make it for her birthday in December. 

Quilt happy,
Marilyn
