Visit from Colleen and Deke – Mon. July 4, 2016

Colleen called yesterday afternoon saying that they were at the Embassy Suites right on the river in downtown Sacramento. They were exhausted after a week of traveling along the California Coast from Santa Barbara to Jenner, which is about 90 miles north of San Francisco. The month before they had rented a house in Montecito (Santa Barbara area), where Deke could work in Carpenteria for the company he contracts with. They came over this afternoon to hang out at the pool, buying an enormous number of snacks at Trader Joe’s on their way over. I had thought they would come back to the house for supper, but they enjoyed just hanging out at the pool and then were anxious to get back to the Embassy Suites before crowds of people gathered to watch fireworks.

Clark and Erin joined Colleen and Deke for the last hour at the pool.

Clark Erin Deke Sam Colleen and Max after a relaxing afternoon of swimming and snacks at the Campus Commons pool. Wheeler swam for awhile, but by the time this photo was taken, Wheeler had left to join friends to watch fireworks.

Colleen, Deke, Max (15 1/2), and Sam (14) leave in the morning for a flight back to Boulder.

Happy 4th to all!
Barbara
