We're Back!


hi! we made it back from california last night...we had a wonderful time...a much needed adult getaway! but of course the time went by way too fast and before we knew it we were on a plane heading back home. terry had the trip pretty much mapped out for us by the time we arrived. we first flew into san francisco and met a colleague of terry's along with his wife. it was a pleasure meeting both of them and spending a few hours together. they took us out for lunch at the slanted door....which, those of you who are from california know that this restaurant is absolutely amazing. the food was so good....if it had just been terry and i, i'm pretty sure i would have gorged myself! we then walked along the bay shore (which is where the first photo was taken) our last stop was an eclectic little coffee shop surrounded by row houses (so san francisco)... the next day we headed to napa....(terry even rented a convertible..he thought of everything!) napa was perfect! the weather was beautiful, the scenery was amazing, the wine, the food......it couldn't have been a better vacation....other than maybe an extra day or two. we managed to see a lot in just 3 days. and would you believe we even took a cooking class together at the culinary institute. it was so much fun. we ate lunch there also which was probably the best meal we had... we went to several wineries for tours and tasting! (we came home with 16 bottles of wine!) it's probably a good thing our vacation was short as the food and wine could easily cause one to gain a good 5 lbs in a very short amount of time! the only thing we didn't do that terry had planned was our couples massage! when he called to make the reservation the spa only had male's giving massages on the day and times we could go. terry just couldn't quite get into having another man give him a massage so we had to nix that idea. ha ha.... so anyway, i could ramble on and on about our amazing trip but i had better close up. i tried to post a few more photos but it wouldn't let me. so maybe tomorrow i'll share a few more....
ps...donna...thanks again for taking such good care of our girls and for keeping them busy with fun projects, shopping and picture taking! they miss you already!

Sounds like a wonderful time. Nice picture of you and Terry! Can't wait to see all the other pictures, and taste some of the wine!

I miss them too! The flight felt like a weeklong journey in itself.
Terry was so right on about the Chicago airport! Midnight before I got to the Fargo airport. Loved being there with the girls, and so very glad that your trip was every-thing you hoped it would be.....are you ? Kidding!!!!!
Make copies of the pictures for me. Not often to get updated ones of you two together! Sorry I had to leave that last project unfinished.....but it will be good for Terry and you to help the girls do that some quiet evening.
