We spent three wonderful days with our friends the Dowers. Joel and Mary moved to Arroyo Grande last year, and we have missed them. Chloë and Louella had a fabulous time together, as usual.
Petite Elaina (almost 14 months) and Humungous Hugh (almost 5 months) next to each other.
Since Mary cut my hair for four years, I was eager to take advantage of her hair chopping skills. It turned out perfectly.
We explored the little Danish village of Solvang.
We went to Santa Barbara, and had to check out a little place that was apparently well known in the area: La Super-Rica Taqueria. We stood in line for about a half hour just to order our food. Shortly after we sat down, Mary said "I think that's Rob Lowe over there. And maybe Gwenyth Paltrow?" I was sure she was wrong, because I'm from Idaho, and we know celebrities don't really exist in person. But I glanced over at the table 20 feet away from us.
Our last stop at the beach, even though it was pretty chilly.
It was such a great vacation. Maybe we'll do it again sometime.
