We spent a few days in Livermore, staying at a friends home, Hugh and Julie K., and that became our home base. We did several things in Livermore, and the girls had a great time while there, and we also happened to be there at the same time our house in Livermore closed, and we are now without a house in Livermore. It was both good to sell the house yet very sad to say good-bye to our home of 28 years. Perhaps I'll write more about it later. As it was, we signed the papers on Tuesday and left Livermore on Friday.
Our trip back down was with a stop in Monterey, where we stayed with our long time friend Larry and his wife Arlinda. Larry's son John was also there, and we visited with him for a little while, but he was studying for the bar exam, so he was pretty busy most of the time. We spent one night there and the next morning we went to the Aquarium and the girls were totally amazed. The Aquarium is an amazing place, and I wish we had more time to spend there, but we needed to get going. Our next stop was simply a sleep over in Ventura, and then on to David and Miriam's place, for Ethan's birthday celebration.
We stayed for several hours and had a great time at the party (they always have great parties, with the best food and lots to drink - though no alcohol - and that's a good thing). We'd been away from Fallbrook, and Jason for about eight days now, and we needed to get home. The drive the rest of the way down wasn't too bad, though there was some typical LA traffic, and we managed to get here in the late afternoon, and our vacation was over. There were some pictures taken, and I still need to load them on to the computer, so instead I'll post a few other pictures I was supposed to post earlier. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
