My Long Genealogy Weekend - Friday to Monday, 2-5 December 2016

This was Linda's birthday weekend, and we had big plans that went off without a hitch, thanks to my daughters ingenuity and energy and love.

Thursday -- I picked Lori and the boys up at 9:45 p.m. for the weekend.

Friday -- Lori and the boys went out in the morning and back in the afternoon.  They went to Little Italy for dinner.  We went to dinner with Jim and Diane from Kansas, Linda's childhood friend from San Francisco.  They surprised her!

Saturday -- Jim and Diane came over to see the house and yard, we had lunch, and left us in the afternoon for a nap.  Tami and her family came.  Lori and the boys did errands, and went to the restaurant to decorate and organize the party.  We got to the restaurant at 5:30 and there were 30 people there and they sang Happy Birthday to Linda.  We took lots of photos and had good food and great fellowship.  Nice Costco cake, another round of HB, hugs and kisses all around.  At home, she opened cards and gifts.  Tami and family went home after the dinner.

Sunday -- Took Lori and the boys to the airport at 9:45, then home to watch football and Jim and Diane came at 10:30, and after Linda got home we went to Imperial Beach for lunch and a walk on the beach.  Jim and Diane left for their next stop at 2 p.m. and we watched the Chargers game.  Chargers lost 28-21.  Drat.

The blog was on automatic from Friday through Sunday.  I did write the Amanuensis post on Sunday night for Monday morning.

Monday - 5 December:
