The Hamiltons Visit California


We received a visit from the Hamiltons over Independence Day long weekend, their tour of California took them from LA to Disneyland, Yosemite National Park, San Francisco and finally up to us in the Sonoma County wine country. Some magic weather for their visit and such fun to have a full house for the long weekend, all the kids had a blast together. I’m pretty sure Max is going to be missing his little blonde haired, blue eyed girlfriend when Alyssa makes her way back to Australia!

The Healdsburg Independence Day festivities were a lot of fun on Saturday, arts and crafts in the square, a New Orleans-style jazz band, face painting, duck races, as well as a parade for the kids. We took a bike – or in Max’s case, an electric truck – for each munchkin to cruise the circumference of the plaza for the parade, Max and Alyssa had all the oldies with grins from ear to ear as they made their way along the route. Thanks for visiting Hamiltons, great to see you all!

    Looks like a lot of fun. Your spot on the river is beautiful. Is it a secret?

    No secret, but I don’t want to put exactly where it is on the web!

    I second Damian’s comments! Thanks so much for sharing your home and showing us around – we had such a wonderful time. Rory and Alyssa are definitely missing their playmates & already starting to say “when we go back to California …” 😉
