As many of you are aware, we are traveling right now, and as a result, getting to put a posting out on the blog is a bit challenging. The trip up to Livermore was uneventful, just the way I like travel to be, and yet still faster than anticipated. I thought it would take close to 8 hours and it was closer to 7 hours for that long drive. We even had an opportunity to stop in and visit with Linda's parents, Joe and Jess, for about 90 minutes, and it was both an nice rest as well as refreshing for us. It is always good to visit with them.
We made it to our favorite Mexican restaurant at about the time we wanted to and had a great visit with Steve and Yolanda, and then finally pushed on to our final destination in Livermore. We got to bed at a reasonable hour, so that we would be sure to have enough rest/sleep for today's activities, with Sean.
We did, in fact get up when we wanted to and made our way over to San Francisco, to spend some time with Sean. He is looking great (pictures tomorrow, I hope. I need to either find the cable or possibly purchase one, so that I can transfer pictures to the laptop). He has a couple of dogs, he calls them his boys, and they are looking great too. We all took them for a nice walk, and visit around the city, and it turned out to be a very nice day for all of us.
We finally had to leave and head back in, where we had dinner with Larry and Joyce, Linda's brother and his wife. They treated us to a nice dinner at Outback Steak House, and it wasn't too far from the hotel we're staying at. The time with them was enjoyable and the conversation was basically all about catching up on the different things happening with us, as well as those happening with them.
Finally, we got back to the hotel and I got on to my email, and saw that I had a couple hundred waiting for me. This is always a time consuming aspect, yet it is one of the best ways to keep in touch with all the friends. One of the emails was from Gary Sinise Foundation, and it was an invitation to the ground breaking for Jason's new home. It is officially set for the 27th, and at 10:00. We will be sending it out to a bunch of our family and friends, close by and even some who are farther away. It should be a fun time for all, and I promise, more pictures. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
