For Your Weekend

What a glorious week it has been here in Northern California! Days of clouds and rain finally gave way to temperatures in the low 70s and partly sunny skies. I’ve been trying to leave work early to get an afternoon walk in with my boys and dogs. My husband and I even had lunch on […]

Highlights from Our 3-Generation Cruise
