So far we've had a lovely day. Alura and Stephan came to stay last night so they could attend her 20th Sonoma Valley High class reunion. We watched the grand-doggers for the evening. It was a real hot one, but the review this morning was that they had a lot of fun and were really glad they went. Alura looked absolutely adorable at 32 weeks pregnant. I'm sure she did not think so, but I'm so glad she went as she was very apprehensive until the last minute. I think my pressure worked, and she seemed very pleased to reconnect with her childhood friends, many going back to kindergarten and before. They headed back home early to beat the heat and take in the festivities close to home.
This morning we took in the fabulous Sonoma Fourth of July parade. It was another hot day sitting there on the pavement (in a chair, of course), but great fun to spend time with our dear friends the Sperrings, and their daughter Jen (& family), who is Alura's good friend from Jr. High all the way through rooming together at UC Davis. Sarah walked down to join us too. I must admit that the heat made me a bit light headed before the 1.5 hour parade was over, but it is always such a fun event and great time to see friends.
