San Francisco


This week Ben (Jonathan's brother), Laurie, Sam, and Aiden McFarland are visiting from Seattle. On Monday, we went into San Francisco for the day. We met up with Rob and Lucy at their new place on Russian Hill and wandered over to the beach in front of the Golden Gate Bridge for a walk. Wow, what an amazing place...

All smiles with the beach in the backdrop...

Both boys are exhausted with their their tongues out, mid-way through a beautiful hike...

Jonah's Cycling Adventures

The top two pictures are from Jonah's first bike ride. We rode about 25mi and daddy and uncle Stephen each pulled for half of the ride. Jonah was a real trooper and we all celebrated w/ smoothies at the end of the ride.

Erik, Katrina and Rider visited from Phoenix. Jonah and Rider went for Jonah's longest bike ride when Erik pulled both of these little studs for 45mi. We stopped half way at GP's house for a quick swim and some lunch. What a fun day!
