This past week we've had some of our oldest and dearest friends in town, all the way from the land down under. It had been almost 2.5 years since I'd last seen these guys - back when Oliver was just a little bubba and we pulled off a pretty special Christmas surprise.

As well as just spending time catching up and reminiscing on adventures past, some sightseeing was in order. Over the Memorial Day weekend, we did a big drive around some of the San Francisco landmarks - checking out the view from Twin Peaks, driving down Lombard Street, a picnic with a view at Crissy Field, a drive around the Marin Headlands & of course, a walk through the giant redwoods at Muir Woods.

I wouldn't change our decision to live here for anything, but boy - having these guys here made me homesick. Skype is a pretty fantastic creation, (and one of the reasons I think Oliver was instantly so comfortable with our friends; normally it takes him a little time to warm up to overnight guests, but not with these guys), but it sure doesn't compare to spending time together in person. I'm so thankful for friends like these; friends that no matter how far apart you live or how much your lives have changed or the time lapsed between visits, the moment you are in the same room, you are instantly at ease & can just pick up where you left off. I've been blessed with a handful of these people in my life and for that I'll be forever thankful.

And with more good friends from the land down under flying over in June & July, 2014 is looking to be the year of the Aussie visitor... I couldn't be more excited :-)
