Well. isn't this what Christmas is all about...giving us all an opportunity to get together? Lauren, and the rest of us, enjoyed some time with Claire who grew up with Lauren and lives 2 houses away from us. She had just returned from spending Christmas in England with her grandparents (and experienced some nightmare airplane travel) and we dragged her along on a venture to "The Counter" in Walnut Creek. Kevin joined us since he lives there (and since he knows his Mom and Dad love to see him)
Dave is surprised at how much hamburgers can cost :) Have you ever been to the Counter??? They either count calories or dollars ...not sure which!
And we had a very special visit with Boomp...just a few weeks away from turning 98. He continues to amaze us! I remember when he and Ging took care of a young, newlywed Navy wife, whose husband and parents were far away.
Love you, Boomp - enjoy the Baileys!
