Weekend with Chris and Em

Well Jon and I had the pleasure of spending the weekend with Chris and Emily! We met them in Cassel, CA, which is approx. 50 miles northwest of Redding (5 hour drive north of San Francisco). They hiked in a 30 mile day (their biggest yet) to make it in Friday night. We hiked 4 miles on Saturday in the blistering heat and then went swimming and drank lots of beer. We fed them steaks and pasta and shrimp and fresh veggies and fruit until they could hardly move they were so full. And sadly, on Sunday we put them back on the trail and headed home to SF. They are more than half way done and have the hardest part behind them, so they seemed in good spirits.

We miss you and are thinking about you today! Hope you're having a fabulous day on the trail!

Maggie's Quilt project

Well Maggie is not aware I am posting this but I wanted to show everyone how awesome her work is going. She is currently following a blog online with her sisters and in the process of making a quilt. She has had this sewing machine for a long time and now it finally is going to get some use. From the looks of it we are in for some real cool stuff. Our house at times looks like a sweat shop minus the small children slaving away, but if the work load piles up we have talked about getting a couple children in there to work long hours and for little pay. ha ha just kidding. let us know what you think of the Quilt...
