Troy’s birthday dinner
We get all fancy pants and go out to Farina. Best Olive Oil Ever.
John, Stacy, Matt, Anthony, Jax and I camp up in Napa. The park was cute. The pool freezing cold. The food excessive. [Sadly, this park is now closed to the public due to state budget cuts.]
We take dear Matthew out for dinner at Perry’s. Too dark for us to take pictures, really, but still a good time.
Summertime at Grandma’s
Matt, Jax, and I go up to the grandfolk’s house to swim and be in the sun. SF was too chilly. I took a bunch of videos but they’re not posted here.

Pedro Tournament and Mello Reunion
Ah the joys of the big family reunion. The card playing was part of a tradition in this Portugese clan: Pedro. Always amazed at how many folks travel so far to come to this event. Mel and Evelyn hosted, as always. Sadly, it was probably the last tournament of it’s kind. The first one was played in 1970 or 1972. And grandma has all the trophy plaques to prove it. Continue reading “Pedro Tournament and Mello Reunion”
Copperopolis Family Gathering
Before the big Pedro party, the Robertson/Anderson clan gathered at Mel and Evelyn’s place. Darryl and I stayed at Saddle Creek’s condos for the weekend, which was a nice respite from the crowded “air mattress” scene over at the grandparent’s house! Continue reading “Copperopolis Family Gathering”
