We had the privilege of watching Charity (Tim's sister) graduate from Cal Poly with her Master's Degree in Counseling and Guidance this weekend. She has worked very hard for the last three years to accomplish this task. She was one beaming grad. We all celebrated back in Shell Beach with a BBQ. It was nice having both sets of parents in town this weekend to celebrate Father's Day as well. Happy Father's Day Frank and Scott!

You might be wondering just where our weekend travels landed us this time. We headed South to Cherry Valley (appropriately named) to pick some cherries with Tim's grandparents. Tim's grandpa owns some land there, and from what I hear, used to have quite the cherry orchard. When we arrived, it was every man for himself as we headed out with our buckets to about the last 10 remaining trees on his orchard.
We were able to pick about a bucketful each. I think Tim only contributed about half a bucket. He ate them as fast as he picked them! It was great to see a lot of family members that came out, and meet a few new ones as well. I guess I didn't quite meet them all at the wedding. We celebrated Tim's grandparents 61 wedding anniversary! Wow, that's a lot of years! They were thrilled to have everyone at their place.

Well, we needed a little break from house projects for the weekend so we headed out to Plaskett Creek to do some camping. This is the first time Tim and I have been back to Big Sur since "the big proposal" so it was a lot of fun. It was pretty cold but we managed well with plenty of smores, hiking, and, down jackets. I don't think I took my beanie off all weekend. Ryan and Camille surprised us by showing up Saturday evening, so we got to hang out with them and battle over a rousing game of "adventure croquet" filled with gofer holes, downhill slopes, and tall weeds in the campsite. The Romanos did win, however.
