In September we celebrated Rachel's birthday with her friend, Milan,
and her former San Francisco roommate, Kelly, at Mill Valley Beerworks.
A few days later, Ellen sent us a great picture of Austin, Ashley, and Alex having fun in Ventura.
In October another trip to the Aquarium with Maggie, Jason, and Carson...
...then a weekend trip to Mariposa and Yosemite (snow at Glacier Point)
In November, a surprise birthday party for Shane...
where Kim and Che's new daughter, Aaliyah, shared the spotlight
The Acevedo family arrived first, then Joe. and then the Neibers:
The old librarian read stories, took pictures of Thanksgiving dinner, and blew out 69 birthday candles
Time to leave electronic devices behind for fun at the nearby playground:

MISSION SAN ANTONIO
We missed Bill and Lana's old home but remembered the way to the Mission nearby:
A long, crooked road to the coast road offered a fantastic view of the ocean below:
Ragged Point, Butterflies, and Beyond
From the Mission to the coast and then towards San Simeon,
we had lunch at a favorite spot just north of Cambria.
There we found the butterflies that eluded us in Santa Cruz and Pacific Grove:
