The kids and I took a road trip to San Francisco, Monterey and San Jose (to visit my sister and her family). On the drive we stopped at Peggy Sue's 50's Diner. They had this "animal park" out back with a gorilla & dinasours.
Eventually, after much driving, we got to San Francisco. I hear a bit of Otis Redding in my head when I look at this photo.
We took a boat ride into the harbor the evening of the first night.
I was lucky enough to fly in on Thursday night (thank you Dad & Linda for watching Hannah & Simon) so I was able to supervise the making of Diane's egg nog (aka jet fuel)..
Wayne came over on Friday and Diane gave him a Christmas Giants hat. This is cool for Wayne since he is a HUGE Giants fan.
After much fun in the kitchen, we made cucumber, salmon, herbed boursin cheese and dill.
Salami, cheese and basil in a roll. It was yummy!
Scene's from the evening....the table inside the front door.
Me (pretending I am REALLY REALLY tall) in front of the tree.
Diane striking "the pose" (ha, ha, ha!)
Cathy, myself & Diane. Cathy & Diane have been friends since kindergarten.
Dom (Cathy's hubby) and I. He wanted to make sure he looked shorter than I did. I took a lot of crap for wearing 4" heels that made me 6'2" for the evening. Dom is also taunting Diane by taking off his glasses....it became the running joke of the evening.
Diane's daughter, Jennifer, with their friend, Thelma. Thelma and her hubby brought yummy bbq sauce!
Bill, Lindsey and their beautiful daughter,
Wayne (who did not match his outfit to his Giants hat) and his lovely girlfriend, Diana.
David (the host) & Avril
Fred & Cathy
A good time had by all. Can't wait until next year!
