We're Back!

We're back from our trip to California where we were able to spend time with two of our four children: son Brandon and daughter Niki, and our dear friends the Rogers family.

We lived in California before being transferred to the midwest three years ago. Our son Brandon decided to stay in CA when we moved. We flew our daughter in as she lives in another state too attending college.

We headed for the coast right away and spent time in Monterey, Carmel and Pebble Beach. When we lived in CA, we often went there on the weekends so we were no strangers to the beautiful coastal areas but you can just never get enough of it.

It was a beautiful day in Carmel and the weather was so warm we played in the waves and enjoyed the sun.

In front of our favorite Monterey Deli. Their sandwiches are yummy! We are so proud of all of our children and want the very best for each of them as they venture into life taking new paths and following their own dreams.

Our dear friends the Rogers, their son Josh and daughter Rachel. Sherry is also an illustrator. We met through an illustration board several years ago. We were both members and found out that we lived just 15 minutes from each other. We met one day at Starbucks and became fast friends. It's all been a lot of fast talkin' ever since! :)

The four of us share so many mutual interests that we've enjoyed so many good times together and we are so blessed to have such wonderful friends. We all went to dinner and had such a lovely time celebrating being together again and Kevin's birthday. Pictured here are Kevin and Dale.

Thanks so much Rogers family for the great time and for your generous hospitality. You will always have a special place in our hearts!
