The Kids Visit

It’s always hard to get excited about writing an entry when the kids have just left as it always leaves me feeling so sad since I get to so seldom see them. Eric & Rachael are due back at work tomorrow however, so left this morning on the three-hour drive back to the San Diego airport. It’s raining right now, adding to my feeling of depression. 

All in all, the visit was fantastic and we enjoyed lots of catching up chat, evening al fresco dining and fires, and a ton of good beer and wine! Neighbors joined us for a brat dinner to welcome them to Yuma and celebrate their recent engagement.
Sunday, we planned for the day in Algodones, as Eric had never been to Mexico and Rachael had a wish list of things she wanted to shop for. The colors are so enticing--bursting forth from every vendor’s booth and I was able to find the new stained glass window I wanted for my little trailer. Wandering worked up our appetites, which we satisfied over lunch at El Paradiso, a consistent favorite of ours.
Marc has a big week coming up given his job trailer was finally delivered last week. Electric is supposed to go in today and the official groundbreaking ceremony will take place on Thursday. The project is finally underway!
