Cousins Come For A Visit...

We were so happy to have my cousin Dale, his wife Kim, and their two boys, Dylan and Kai come for a visit this week...

Here they are, with our dog Nikki, on Snoopy's nose at the Snoopy Labyrinth at the Charles M. Schulz Museum that I designed in 2001...

We had a barbecue on our back deck with corn on the cob and Cesar salad and my dad was able to join us! That's my step-son Orin on the far left, visiting us before he leaves for France and Switzerland at the end of the month where he will be doing his physics doctorate research at the CERN, European Consortium of Nuclear Research, Lab!
