We live by rivers, lots of them in fact. When it
rains it tends to flood a bit. It is ok until it floods a lot. Well
this week family has been in town and we have gone everywhere or so it seems.
Train Museum and the river, on Friday of last week, followed by the
quick trip to Fairfield, CA home of the Jelly Belly. Where on Saturday
we took jelly belly tour with the Things. Then we went to a humble
little city called San Francisco and played in the sand, gobbled down
chocolate, and indulged in seafood. Sunday was church. Monday was a
