Day 3 Family Reunion.....




Day 3 also started with a walk to the store, I got everyone except the kids to go, actually, that is not true. Guoda got up and went with us and she ran with me here and there for exercise, as if she needs it! We planned our adventure this day to go to Turtle Bay and explore the Museum and the Sundial Bridge. It was so much fun, we also went into the Butterfly and bird exhibit, they land on you and in the Bird exhibit, they give you food sticks so the birds land on you and eat out of your hand. The Sundial bridge was really amazing and also the Lego exhibit. We had our lunch there and I think we were there for a total of around 4 hours. Since it was Friday, Jay would be heading up after work. The kids and Aunt Pat and I stopped at Safeway on our way back to the lodge and got food for dinner, we had fajitas. Jay actually made it by 6 pm which was amazing to me, but we were all happy he made it up so early. My mom made her famous London Fogs for everyone (I had mine with a weight watchers smoothie and saved 14 points) which are half gin, half vanilla ice-cream. It was fun to watch all of the "Adults" enjoying themselves, even Aunt Lita, who shares an alcohol allergy with me had a WW smoothie with gin with me. We started to play Trivial Pursuit as we waited for Cory and her family to come up and even thought Stevi and I got the first wedge of pie, Guoda and Aunt Pat started to dominate the board, thankfully we were saved when Cory, Brian, Nat and Ethan showed up around 10:15pm. As Jay and Brian sat outside with their cigars and got to know each other, we sat around and figured out who was going to sleep where, and because we were sure they were exhausted from working all day and driving 4 hours, we let them go to bed. It was a wonderful day, beautiful weather and great family bonding!
