Dave's childhood home has a gorgeous back patio including an extensive flower garden and pool area. I spent the better part of the early afternoon soaking up the sunshine on the patio while reading my latest book.
Dave's sister and brother and their families joined us today for a pool party. Well, I never did hit the pool, but I enjoyed the hot tub for awhile. Something I wouldn't even begin to consider back home, but the high here was in the low 70's, so hot tub it is!
Of course there was also TONS of great food - baked ham, potato salad, broccoli, veggie salad, corn on the cob, french bread, strawberry pie, blackberry pie, chocolate cake, and fruit torte. Mmm, mmm!
We had a few silly gifts from a party we attended in San Jose (one of which was a tin of bacon flavored gum). Um, no thanks. So we gave one to each of Dave's nephews. The tins were promptly opened and passed around the room. Just about everyone spit them out within the first few chews, but the looks on their faces were just priceless. Nasty! Glad I skipped that one.
Well, I'm exhausted and am going to relax and enjoy my latest mystery. Tomorrow we have plans to see Harry Potter. Woohoo! Vacation rocks!
