Family is Awesome

We had a nice little visit from our oldest niece (we keep bringing that up, don't we?) on my side over the weekend.
KM is such an even and fun girl to be around. She has grown into a good mother of 4 and is just plain adorable. I'm sure her little people missed her, but it was probably a good thing for her to be able to enjoy a weekend with "the girl(s)." I think most mom's need a little rejuvination once in a while.
She brought a nice friend for a visit to the magical city of San Fran, and they were able to stay with us. "Wicked" was the entertainment of the night on Friday after they enjoyed the city during the day. On Saturday they went to the beach Boardwalk in Santa Cruz. That is just over the mountain from our cute little town, and easy to get to for a nice afternoon.
They brought us this
from Gayles Bakery in Capitola. YUMMY.
That bakery has such a beautiful assortment of amazing treats. They also serve up a mean breakfast and lunch for your eating pleasure.
Thanks, Kel. You've grown into a beautiful woman.


  1. Ooooooh....Gayle's is THE BEST. My fave is their Princess Cake (which you probably know from my obsessing about it on my blog). We're going to be home for a week this summer and I can't wait to go and get some goodies!

    Icing on the Cake isn't too shabby either...

  2. That dessert looks wonderful! It sounds like they had a great time. All moms need a little r&r once in a while.


    PS. I just got back from Dallas and will post the rest of my talk from the conference tomorrow. =)
