Nothing makes us happier than being able to visit our kids! It’s uncanny how many times we are asked to speak in places where our kids live. We marvel that we get to see four or five of our nine every month for one reason or another, even though only one lives close enough to be with on a regular basis. We are truly blessed!
Last week we spent a few minutes with the Looslis on Monday on our way up to see Grandma Ruthie up in Logan. We took the twins along and they joined us on our radio show on Satellite Radio on the way. They were adorable telling everyone about how they saved up for their transformers.
On Wednesday morning we headed for San Francisco where we were picked up by our darling baby Charity and taken for a quick tour of her house (for dad’s sake) and then on to a truly spectacular (I know I use that word a lot, but there is just no other way to describe it) view of her beloved San Francisco from a hilltop above the city.
Then it was on to a dinner to die for at the Slanted Door at the Ferry Building. I don’t think I’ve ever had such a wonderful variety of divine food! It was so fun to be with our baby!
We were there to speak to the Entrepreneurs Organization of San Francisco. We had a terrific time talking about parenting with about 110 dedicated parents doing all kinds of interesting things in the San Francisco area! Of course the presentation is always a lot better when we have a child there. Charity was spectacular as well as lending some credibility to what we had to say. It was so fun to have her there with us!
We had all three been reading Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, the book so one of our goals while we were together was to see the movie. So kind of crazy, but we went to a 10:15 show at a theatre in the area after the presentation. It was so thought provoking and fun to compare it with the book. It’s really worth seeing.
Charity thinks I’m so funny for taking this picture but it was good proof that we went. It was 12:30 when we walked out and Charity still had to take us to our hotel and get back home to get ready to get up in a few hours for work. It was worth it!
I just have to say that the food in San Francisco rivals the food in New Orleans. This watercress salad was one I’m going to try to copy. Delectable!
On to Gilbert AZ where we get to see our adorable grand daughter baptized!
