Back From Cali

Alex and I spent the weekend in Northern California with my sister, Lori's family. We had a great time. We arrived Friday morning enjoyed watching my 5 year old nephew's swim lesson. Now that boy is a fish. Then dropped Alex off at Google, where my brother in law works. Alex thoroughly enjoyed his visit there. While Alex was on the Google campus Lori her three children and I enjoyed the farmers market and the mall. When Alex was done with his tour he watched the kids so Lori and I could go to the Museum of Textiles and Quilts. No pictures were allowed in the gallery but here are a few I snapped before we went in. I love the scrappiness of this quilt. Here is some fiber art they had hanging in the window. You get me and Lori as a bonus in the refection of the window.

And these were in the sidewalk out front. And you get a peek at my toes. Sorry I didn't notice that when I took the pictures.


On Saturday we enjoyed the beach. Alex surfed with dolphins and seals. Lori's kids played in the surf and made sandcastles. Sunday we enjoyed each others company. It was a fabulous trip. Thank you Lori for a wonderful time.

  3. It sounds like you had a lot of fun. It's a shame that places don't allow inside photos or have a web tour for people who can't visit the country. I get frustrated about that when I am trying to share the great places in the UK.

    Ooo swimming- love it! You couldn't get me out of the water as a kid.

  6. Em,

    Great trip, loved the pics you were allowed to take (cute toes). I was really excited to read about Alex surfing with the Dolphins and Seals. That's like being with God.
