Elsa has arrived

A lot has happened the last two weeks. On father's day Dan and Carmen took us to the Pacific Pinball Museum where we got to play pinball on machines dating from the 1930s up to current machines. While we were doing that, Steve cooked a father's day dinner consisting of prime rib and delicious side dishes. We celebrated with Dan too as a father to be. On June 21, Steve and Emily invited us to walk up Bernal Hill with them to celebrate solstice day. It was a mile from the house and a steep climb after we got there but we saw some spectacular views of San Francisco from the top. We helped Emily work on the house some during the week and spent some time at the RV park exploring the area on our bikes. We rode along the ocean and found a place called Mori Point that is part of the Golden Gate National Recreation area. There were paths that led us through fields of flowers to overlooks where we saw great views of the ocean. We also spent time sitting by the pier in Pacifica watching the ocean waves break over the rocks and drinking coffee at the Chi-Chat cafe. Carmen and Dan went to the hospital on Friday evening and our first Grandchild was born on Saturday afternoon, June 25th. Her name is Elsa Louise Dunham and she is truly a cute baby. While Carmen and Dan were in the hospital, we stayed at their house and kept Enzo (the dog) company. They brought Elsa home on Wednesday June 29th. Right away Enzo accepted her as part of the family. Thursday we met Steve at his workplace and went to lunch with him. After lunch we painted on Steve and Emily's hallway and then stopped in at Dan and Carmen's to see Elsa before going back to the RV park. We spent Friday in Pacifica catching up on stuff at the RV. Today we got to baby sit Elsa while Dan and Carmen run errands. She is opening her eyes more now and is really a cute baby.
