We spent Monday night in San Jose, and travelled home on Tuesday, to get home before Daniel has to start the new school year on Thursday. On Tuesday morning, we visited with Daniel's family.
Aubrey trying on her grandma's glasses.
"A spider!" Aubrey kept saying there was a spider there. None of the rest of us could see it. She seemed genuinely scared at first, until we saw what it was: the light shining through the crystal on the window in the door. Once Aubrey understood what it was she stopped being scared and started joking by yelling "Bah! A spider!" and running from it.
After visiting for a while we headed to Fresno. In Boston we had left some of our souvenirs with Catherine's parents, so this gave us the opportunity to recover them. Luckily, they were watching Calista and Cecilia and Gabriel. Throughout our trip we have been buying gum everywhere. We've bought gum in Portugal, Spain, Boston, San Francisco, and Kauai. Calista and Cecilia love gum, and Catherine had told them that we would get them a pack of gum in Portugal. They were surprised and delighted by the large amount of gum that we actually had for them (Gabriel, who isn't old enough to chew gum, got tic-tacs).
Finally home after our long journey. We have one full day to rest before Daniel has to go back to work. We have loved our entire time away, and can't believe that we had such a beautiful opportunity.
