We spent the summer in San Francisco, not nearly the coldest winter ever - it was remarkably temperate and even hot. For three weeks Aunt Cob & Uncle Mark indulged our vagrant ways with a bed and many wonderful meals and talks. When Pam and David arrived in May we relocated to their house on Clay Street and settled in for reading, eating, socializing, and doing it all again the next day. We also got to meet many of the adorable children born while we were traveling.

We had two weddings to attend this summer: On June 5 Sean and Sasha got married outside Iowa City and we traveled there via Kansas City with Julie, Kevin and Venice. Mike's brother Tom married Corynn in San Francisco on June 19 which meant a round of preparatory crafts weekends, family gatherings and a wonderful wedding.

We closed out our summer with a farewell party at Clay Street and a get-together at the Pig & Whistle.

After a luxurious summer of wonderful friends, excellent eating, and great enjoyment we loaded up a rental car, said goodbye to beautiful San Francisco, and set out for the mysterious East.
