Like I mentioned in my previous post, my sister Deirdre and brother Jesse recently visited: Deirdre from Az. and Jesse from Ut. Deirdre came first and we got to show her Hawthorne Blvd. Jesse came a couple of days later and we got to show him heavy rain and thunderstorms :(. Fortunately, that weather only lasted one day and the remainder of their visit was quite nice. We played games, picnicked and played at the park on Father's Day, enjoyed a gorgeous day at Otter Crest beach, shopped, ate/drank fresh strawberry/raspberry milkshakes from Aspenwalls and ate LOTS of good food. Their vacation felt like my vacation: It was very fun and I did not want it to end. The only downer was that Jesse didn't get to play tennis with my brother Paul or I--that was the day the storm blew in. Oh well. I guess he better come back and visit again soon :).
I wish I had take more pictures of them while they were here, but I didn't. The kids always seem to be the focal point--whether it be for attention or the camera lens. Here's a few photos from our trip to Otter Crest.
