Birthday season continued with Elaine's birthday - Joe was back from college that weekend and we all went out for breakfast. I took Elaine away to San Francisco for a long weekend and we had a great time walking around the City, but especially a wine tour of Napa valley on a coach trip. (Of course I tried this a couple of years ago, when I took her on a surprise trip to Calistoga, but it didn't turn out to be the romantic getaway I had hoped for! Jump back to April 2010 if you need a reminder! This time we did have a nice weekend!
Joe continues to enjoy life at Utah State, and we went to see him in a guitar ensemble, plus he was performing in a few other events up there. Sinead looks like she'll be leaving the job at the tanning salon - it's not working out as she had hoped, and she has given it a good try. She does work hard. Sean bought his own first car this month - first step towards building his own line of credit in the hopes he can get a house in the coming year. His new job for Wizards of The Coast seems to be going really well.
