This trip has been filled with so many wonderful things:
- Obviously the highlight of it all was the arrival of Georgia Capri and being able to spend all this time with my son and his family. Hard to believe she'll be one week old tomorrow.
- Surprising my sisters and attending my niece's graduation party. It was great spending time with all of them.
- Going with my sister, Linda, to meet our Uncle Jerry, and going to our beach
There were pictures of old family homes--and lots of history. Not so many names, but lots an lots of stories. I would love to figure out how many of my relatives were administrators or worked at the different missions in California.
I'm so glad that I have been here so long and have had the opportunity to connect with members of my mom's family. I am sure many of you spend time with family whenever you have the chance--keep doing it. Family is so important. I'm going to tell you all a little secret--about 20 years ago my mom's family had a reunion and part of my family attended. I don't know what was wrong with me, but I didn't take a single picture and didn't really visit with anyone. (I think something must have been wrong with me--4 of the family were still alive and I didn't even talk to them ; ( I'm so glad I've been able to connect with these guys.
And--next week I'm going to see the Giants play--I haven't been to a Giants' game in years. In fact, the last time I was there they were playing at Candlestick Park, so I'm excited about going to I can't wait to see my little granddaughter in her Giants outfit.
Sidenote: I'm going home next Friday. It will be great to see my husband again--it feels like it has been A REALLY LONG TIME.
