Kelley, Melissa and Jennifer were in the Bay Area this weekend. Their parents, Tim and Jean, were sometimes surrogate parents for me when I lived in Germany. Even though I have lost contact with them all over the years, I still think of them with incredible fondness. Amy, the boys and I drove down on Saturday afternoon for a really nice evening in Palo Alto. They were all willing to meet us somewhere between Roseville and San Francisco, but unfortunately Fairfield and Cordelia just aren’t too exciting as destinations. We figured that Palo Alto would be the perfect place to meet them as there are plenty of neat restaurants and University Ave. is a beautiful place to walk. It was really great seeing all of them again and I hope that I do a better job of maintaining contact with them in the future. Yes, ladies, you were indeed worth the trip!
