"A Gift and The Visit...."

Anna is also a knitter and Friday night gave Andy a knitted set of Alphabet Blocks for he and Angela's unborn baby. They are very soft and will be nice for "Ocean" to chew on when teething. :)


My youngest son, Sean, and his girlfriend, Becky, stopped in Madison, on their way to San Fransisco. They are both doing their chef internships in "the city by the Bay". He will be at Rubicon's and Becky will be at The Greens.

I had knitted/felted this bag for Becky and sent it to her for her birthday last January. Unfortunately, I was so excited to get it in the mail when it was finished, that I'd forgotten to sew the accent button on before packing and sending it. I remedied that soon after they arrived. :)


Rob knew the kids were planning on visiting, so he'd kept his "eyes peeled" and came over to say hi when he knew they'd arrived. He lived in San Fransisco and had some "pointers" to share........


He "shared" his sage advice over a few beers....... :)


We took our "culinary kids" to Tex Tubb's Taco Palace on Saturday night, and Pasqual's on Sunday night. For some reason, it became a Mexican Food themed visit. We also took them to the new shop, Vom Fass (http://www.vomfassusa.com/), where they were able to taste flavored oils and vinegars, settling on purchasing one vinegar that was made from fruit found in the Philippines.

They left Monday morning, planning on driving 12 hours, then camping for the night. Their next visit was to be in Boulder with Kim, our cousin Jill's daughter.

Their road trip will soon come to an end, as Sean starts at Rubicon this coming Monday. Becky has another week before she begins her internship at The Greens, so will have some time to get acclimated to the city.
