More "working" vacation

I'm here in Redwood City at my son's home. Danielle left for Hawaii this morning, and Robert returns from a business trip to the Dallas area, and he'll need to go to work the rest of the week. So I'll be here for Simone. She is enrolled in a sports day-camp at the local athletic club, and they swim and play different sports each day. She just loves it, but she's also pretty much exhausted by the time the day is over. I know she likes to stay after the day-camp itself, so I'll go and pick her up about 4 pm or so. The athletic club is near a shopping center, too, so if I need to pick up any items, that's easy to work in!

I think this afternoon we'll head over to Barnes and Noble. I know she loves that store and so do I. I want to get a couple of other books by Tracy Chevalier. I just finished The Lady and the Unicorn, so now I'll see what other titles of hers I can find. I know she is the author of The Girl with the Pearl Earring. And we'll see what other books in the first level of I Can Read books we can find.

My folks are visiting with the Coffeys in San Jose. Yesterday, they just went out for some sightseeing and shopping and then got in a walk. That's some doing -- lots of hills over there! Today Uncle Robert was there for lunch and a good visit. Tomorrow they will be golfing. And then on Friday, Annette is having a family get-together at her house for lunch and a swim. I will have to go by myself since Robert will be at work and Simone's day camp is going on a field trip.

Fun times!
