The last part of our trip we spent with Grandma Rasmussen in Vacaville. One day we went to a high school play with Grandma and her friend, Jean. Another day we went to Grandma’s club house and joined her exercise class, and Sunday morning we went to church with her, then out to lunch at Panera Bread before flying home. Every evening we knitted together, played card games, drank tea and ate chocolates.

One day we went on a little walk in the park near Grandma’s house
On Saturday Auntie Ann, Aunt Karen and our cousin Shanice joined us for a day in San Francisco. Auntie Ann planned a few activities for all of us to do in the city.
First, we went to the de Young Art Museum. The current exhibit is Dutch paintings from the Mauritshuis featuring the Girl with a Pearl Earring by Johannes Vermeer.

Next, we went to the Japanese Tea Garden which was walking distance from the museum.
Auntie Ann and Uncle Joe made reservations for us at the restaurant Prospect. It was a very fancy meal with many different courses. The restaurant was on the bay overlooking the Bay Bridge.

Dear Aunt Karen, Shanice, Grandma, Auntie Ann, and Uncle Joe, we had a wonderful day with you in the city. We made such fun memories together on this trip. We were so glad we were able to spend the day with you.
Grandma Wilma, we enjoyed this part of our trip very much. We loved playing games with you and knitting and chatting with you in the evenings.
