San Diego Part 2

Pin It Now!

We went back to Grams house Saturday night. Sunday we drove to Newport Beach and stayed with the Olson family. They have two little boys. One of them (Jake) is Elijah's age and they are buds. Keri Olson was one of my roommates and best friends in college. We left the kids with the dads and Keri and I drove to LA for a birthday party for Natalie Nuce. Natalie was the Athletes in Action staff gal at UCLA and discipled both of us.

Now I will give you one hundred thousand doll hairs if you can guess what kind of restaurant we went to for the Birthday party. This was the remnants of our communal meal. Don't worry, we washed it down with Diddy Riese (hot spot in Westwood where you get two fresh baked cookies with ice cream in the middle for $1.50).

We spent the night at the Olson's and then returned to Casa de Grams on Monday, but stopped at the Brown household on the way back. As you can see, Lydia had a great time with Chris.


Had New Years Eve at Caleb and Kate's house. Partied like rock stars...or more like old people that don't even stay up until midnight. Then Shiloh made his Mom do this lame pose with the glasses and we left.

Pin It Now!

IMPRESSIVE Solecki. 100 doll hairs will immediately be deposited into Ella's account! How did you know it was Ethopian?

I was going to guess some sort of Indian cuisine. You are sooooo international! How old is Shiloh? 12? His mom looks no more than 32. Seriously, I thought it must be his sister.

My guess was Ethiopian, too.
(Master Sleuthing skills-> check out the background of the picture of you and Pheebs, under her arm.) Is that cheating??? :)

Crud, I didn't notice the pit poster either otherwise I would have blacked that out. Oh well, sounds like Brian won despite his lack of due diligence. He's just a genius. Probably from eating a lot of Ethiopian food.
