Visit to Southern CA, Orange County, for wedding of Emily and Kyle, 7/6-7/10/22

We arrived Wed, 7/6, spent the night with our Aunt Gloria, visited in the morning, and then met Marta and Sue from Harbor/UCLA days to get all the latest poop on the big names from back in the day

While in a city with an Asian store, Merle wanted to stop to get some things we don't have in Albany.  She also had a great urge for a Filipino dessert that she hasn't had for years:  Halo halo.

A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.
After eating, and eating, we went...where else?...To eat!!  Here we visit with Salomon and Paula

Friday am, 7/8, we picked up Lori and Emily from the airport and went on a hike in the OC on the CA coast.

We had beautiful weather and views, but something about hiking apparently gives us an unexplainable urge to wish others peace.  Or count to two.

Friday evening was the rehearsal dinner.  Here we are with cousins Terry, Chagit, and the star of the show, Emily.
