We have visitors this weekend. My niece Jessie and husband Evan are here from Milwaukee. My sister and brother-in-law are babysitting their two kids. I’m not 100% sure, but I think this is their first childfree trip since forever!
Since moving to California we’ve found a lot more people are passing through or in the neighborhood. That’s good for me, because Helaine bakes. Too self centered?
For Jessie and Evan it’s a very quick trip so we’re squeezing in as much as possible. This afternoon while I prepared and delivered the forecast Helaine took them to Balboa Island in Newport Beach for a whale watching trip.
Actually, this started when I called Jessie in Milwaukee to ask what they wanted to do? I threw out whale watching as a suggestion. She said yes before the words were fully out of my mouth!
Tonight, between newscasts, we took them for dinner at a ‘build-your own’ burger place, The Counter. Once again, success.
The trip ends Sunday morning. By late Sunday afternoon Jessie and Evan will be back in Milwaukee… back to reality.
