... we get excited to show them around our city, and even more excited if they have an extremely adorable child like this wonderful couple does.
It's a nice feeling to host people in our home and our city. It helps me look at my surroundings with a fresh, appreciative eye. We have an imperfect little home in a backyard, but we try to make it loving and welcoming. We have a beautiful city with so much character, and it's always fun to think about what places to take people and how they will see it.
It was lovely having this family spend some time in our home and our city this past weekend. We enjoyed a backyard bbq, homemade berry waffles courtesy of Matt, cappuccinos, a long walk through our neighborhood which led us to swings, a picnic and walk through Balboa Park, the cactus garden, Chicano Park, and Sunset Cliffs. Of course, there's still more on our list for next time.
The most enjoyable part, though, was the rich conversations and consistent entertainment by their beautiful son. This family is an inspiration.
Marc, Kara, and Nolan, visit again soon!
Okay, who is coming next to Casa Gonzales?
