Comments for Family Visit

Sean and Harriet at the parkFamily Visit: 02/09/08

Judy and Charlie are visiting. They arrived last night just before we put the children to bed.

Today they spent the whole day with us. We had our usual breakfast at Baker's Square in Castro Valley. We spent most of the day at home, lazing around and playing video games.

After lunch Judy and Charlie walked the children to the local park so that Ian and I could do some well needed chores around the house. We did a thorough cleaning of the kitchen and we got rid of the old high chair. Harriet has now graduated to a booster seat which frees up a lot of space in our tiny kitchen.

Once the high chair was gone, I rotated the table ninety degrees and pushed the skinny end up against the window. Rotating the table frees up more well needed space.

For dinner we went to Chevy's in Pleasanton. We're now finishing up our day watching the original 3:10 to Yuma (1957).
