We just returned from a 10 day trip to Los Angeles and Las Vegas. The main reason was to attend bonus son John's engagement party to his long-time girlfriend, Jessie. It was held in one of those wonderful old Mission style homes in South Pasadena. Beautiful wooden moldings, gracious sized (read really large) rooms and wonderful details. A good time was had by all. We visited my brothers, bonus daughter Kate and John's mom and siblings. Even managed a quick stop at Zinnia's to visit my friend Tamara.
