Birthday weekend

Although Terry and I had a packed schedule last week and undone chores at home, we still took off early Friday morning to get to the Bay Area in time to join our daughter and son-in-law at Judah’s preschool to celebrate his 4th birthday. Jen made these fruit kabobs for his class:

We continued the birthday celebration with a party in the park with Judah and Leeya’s friends on Saturday. There was a gale-wind warning. Fortunately it rained a bit in Fresno while we were gone.

Sunday was Jen’s 37th birthday so there was a small celebration for her after church. My baby:

 The October birthday celebrants.

Now we are back home to all those chores and making preparations for the next two weeks which are filled with activities. The grandkids will be getting a two-week fall break but we probably won’t see them as our schedules don’t mesh. School has changed the way we plan our times together.

Rain update: since October 1 we have received .07 of an inch. Not much, but it’s a start. Too much rain at once will cause some major disasters in the area that have been devastated by forest fire.
