See how much fun we had! Rick showed us videos he made during the trip...the streets of Delft, the Musical Instrument Museum in Utrecht, the canals of Amsterdam, the Museum in Eindhoven. Mom felt like she was there withus.

SUNDAY JULY 30, 2005
Grandson Tim (far right) came up from San Diego so that his two boys (smallest is Ryan (19 months) and six year old Dylan) could visit their great-grandma. Dylan's "best friend", Julian, and Sara, (far left) the babysitter, are happy to be with their Nana too! See more about Tim's visit to Santa Barbara

Sunday, July 17, 2005 Seanie came from new Paltz, New York, looking forward to hearing stories read by Grandma, like when he was a child. They had some time alone at her place, she watched a family swim at our condo pool, then a family dinner at the Cafe del Sol, and finally stories and dessert back at our home. See more photos

Mary came to our Santa Barbara home for dinner and fun, Sunday July 10, 2005. She loved how pretty our place looked, thanks to her grandaughter Colleen's preparations. She enjoyed a salmon, sweet potato, toasted baby potatoes and asparagas dinner that Kathy made. A cup of tea, a relaxing look at "Santa Barbara magazine, and a peek at Kathy's web sites brought a satisfied smile.
