Guests... and more guests

We were pleased to have some of our family come through Bakersfield this week and visit us. Barry dreamed up the whole thing. In anticipation of his mother's (Barbara's) 90th birthday later this year he wanted to talk to some of the relatives to get some interesting facts about her younger years. So... Barbara hitched a ride from Sacramento with Buffy and Lance who had been up there visiting. They all landed here for a fun couple of days. Barry and Lee drove up from Escondido and joined the group on Friday. We had a Bunting style feast to celebrate.

Levi and I cooked up some Peach Cobbler for dessert. We served Tri-Tip, Relief Society Potatoes, Carrots, French Bread and Green Salad.

Saturday the Delgado's joined us again and we had a great time talking more over breakfast. Lots of pancakes and Bunting's organic brown eggs were consumed.

David and I had met up with Nadine, Deanna and Susie in the L.A. Temple on Tuesday. Nadine was scheduled for back surgery Wednesday, so Sue and her mom drove down from Northern California and and met Deanna, who flew in from Utah. They arrived a couple of days early and stayed in the temple apartments. Tuesday is my day to serve at the temple, so while I served my shift, David , Nadine, Deanna and Sue went on sessions. Afterward we had lunch together in the temple and visited awhile in their apartment before heading home to Bakersfield. After surgery, Deanna flew home and Sue and her mom came to Bakersfield for Nadine to convalese at Nadine's sister' home. Sue came over Sunday night to chat awhile. (See above pic) Nadine's doing well and David is planning to take her to her follow-up appointment next Thursday.
Lee and Barry came back to Bakersfield on Monday after their sprint up the state to Sacramento to take Barbara back home and see Aunt Helen. We all went out for Italian food. I probably gained back everything I lost the beginning of the month.
