We have many things to do while here in the Reno/Carson City area, our former home, including seeing our children, grandchildren, put our former home on the real estate market for sale,

One of the surprises we had was a call came from Rebecca's brother Tim asking us to witness his wedding to Sandi. They decided to get married in Reno, they're from Eugene, while we are here. We do it and spend a couple days with them before they drive back to Eugene. We love surprises ! ! !

The next weekend we drove over the Sierras to Sacramento for a weekend with Dave's brother Gary and Kathy. The three of us went to San Francisco for a day. We stopped by a art museum, later had dinner at the famous Cliff House. After dinner we drove down to the wharf to get some bread at Boudins Sourdough, one of our favorite stops in SF.

While in Reno, of all the things we had to do most important was time with kids and family. We had a good time but we were bittersweet with the lack of time available to see the kids. Ugh! Since they all work and go to school and we have appointments. Oh, the choices.

Finally, when the two weeks were done, our former home was sold, we saw all the kids, brothers, loaded the stored items in the shed into a "Ya'all Haul" .

Heading to our vacation home in Brenda, AZ and the Desert Gold RV Resort, space D-28

Thank you to our grand and great friends the VanEmmeriks for using one of their sheds all these years and for their hosting us this time with little visiting.
