California or Bust!

On Weds, June 5, Dave and I flew to Sacramento.  We were heading to the 50th wedding anniversary of my cousins, Marion and Ron.  We went a few days early so that I could introduce him to the Sacramento cousins.

We spent the night with Ted and Louisa on Wednesday night.  It was so great to visit with them.  We also got to see Kevin and his family and the grand kids. They fixed us a delicious dinner.  We were able to get a lot of visiting in.  Dave commented on how nice everything was and what a great guy Ted is.   I agree as Ted is one of the finest men I know.

Thursday morning,  Ted took us on a tour of Sacramento.  He knows so much of the history and little known facts about buildings, etc. It was great.

We then went to stay with Jan and Tim.  In addition, Jean came up from San Jose to meet Dave.  We had another wonderful visit and a great dinner.  It was so nice for Dave to meet the cousins.  He has a lot of family so he "gets it" which is really nice!   For some reason, I didn't take any pictures.

Friday we picked up our cousin, Mike, from the airport and drove to Turlock for the celebration of 50 years of marriage for Marion and Ron--more cousins.  It was a small celebration with just the "sisters" invited.  I am always so thrilled to be included as a "sister" as my Phoenix cousins are like my sisters.

We had a nice dinner with just our generation at an Italian restaurant in Turlock Friday night. 

Saturday we moved to Modesto.  Got there a bit early and couldn't check into the hotel so we went bowling!!  I haven't bowled in years and it was fun!!!

Saturday evening all of the family went to 5:00 Mass and then to a restaurant with a special room just for us.  It was so great to be with all of the family and we had an absolutely wonderful time celebrating Marion and Ron.

We drove back to Sacramento Sunday afternoon and checked into our hotel by the airport.  We met one of Dave's cousins for a late lunch.   Dustin is a delightful young man who works in the area as in special education administration.  

It was such a nice trip.  Came home to two puggies who were so glad to see us.  Got laundry done.  I had a board meeting on Tuesday.  

We left for Butte Weds. and had to get everything packed for that trip.  I will write about that soon.
