After three days of exploring the coast we made it to our friends' home in El Cerrito, California. We became friends with Charles and Swee Peck back on Prentiss Street in Cambridge when both Swee Peck and I were pregnant. Since then we have both moved, but try to see each other once year. Ben had not yet been to see their new home in California, so we decided that it would be worth the beautiful drive down the coast to see them for a few days before heading back to South Dakota. Juliana turned two on our drive, so when we arrived in El Cerrito last night, Swee Peck had a wonderful birthday dinner waiting for us. The crab was amazing! It rivaled lobster for this New Englander. And we can see that it is just the beginning of a few fun days of playing for the kids. We are so happy to be here!
