Visiting Grandma Furnare

We always love spending time with Grams.  On this trip, Grandma Hertzing also joined us for dinner and told us all about her trip to Italy and Greece.  She brought back hand blown Venetian Murano glass heart necklaces from Venice.  We had a great time catching up and sharing our life stories!

Visit With Grandpa Bill And Cathy

We had fun visiting with Grandpa Bill and Cathy for the weekend.  We had nice dinners, a fun beach day with the Morales Family in San O and met Cathy's cousins Ron and Eli.  We always love spending time with family and wish we could see more of our family on the East Coast.  Thank you for a wonderful time and look forward to our next visit!
