Well...like I said it was wonderful having my parents here. I enjoyed spending time with them by myself on Friday afternoon as we went to Livermore and enjoyed a little wine tasting at Steven Kent Winery. My boss's boss pours over the weekends and he gave me 2 VIP wine tasting passes, which we were able to enjoy a sampling from both the general "flights" and the reserved "flights". It was most enjoyable (thank you boss's boss).

While grilling the meat, my mother thought it would be nice to have some fresh lemon in her tea, so we had the boys try to harvest some...did you know that a hockey stick is also a good device to harvest fruit?
I thought it might be fun to see if any of our oranges would be ready too...but had second thoughts about letting the hockey players harvest them.
On Saturday, we all went to see the movie "How to Train Your Dragon" in the Imax 3-D. It was very entertaining. Afterwards, Grandpa took his grandsons golfing for a couple of hours while my mother and I went shopping.

Our destination was Moss Beach, were, during low tide, there are these wonderful tide pools that you can investigate and see things like:
