Dad's Visit

My dad has arrived a few days ago with some friends.  They've been staying with us and exploring the area.  Brett and I weren't sure how it would go; we only have one functional shower -- and there are six of us including my dad and his friends.  But, shower coordination has been no problem and we've had a great time.  I'll let the pictures tell the story -- which of course involves many wonderful meals (at area restaurants and at home) and good wine.

Roasted beet salad with oranges, goat cheese and toasted walnuts

Dad requested that I wear some of my mom's jewelry at dinner.


  1. What a great visit! Your Mom sure had good taste in jewelry (love the photo of you)...and of course your meal looked delicious. So sweet that your Dad was able to travel with several friends...I bet they had a ball.

  2. the jewelry is sweet. you treat them like kings. :)

  3. Girl, do you have any idea of how blessed you are to live where you do right about now? Just the thought of sitting outdoors any time of the day seems foreign to me.
    Your mom had great taste in jewelry and you look very happy.


Thanks so much for commenting! I love the conversation.
