On Sunday Jon and I were able to meet up with our good friend Erick down in San Francisco! He just started medical school at Stanford University and it was amazingly wonderful to see him. Unfortunately, Kira was not able to be there as well and we certainly missed her, but it was great to talk to Erick nonetheless.
We got to hear all about how medical has been for him so far and it really got us excited about when Jon start next fall!! The whole day was just amazing! We had a picnic at Golden Gate Park and then it started to sprinkle, which it did for the rest of the day. After having absolutely no rain so far this summer, I absolutely loved every minute of the weather!! We then went to Ghirardelli Square where they were having a chocolate festival and had samples of all sorts of chocolately delicious things, including brownies that tasted like roses!! Weird sensation...
We then walked down to the sourdough bread factory and watched them make bread for a bit. I love sourdough bread!! We then had to leave so that Erick could catch his train to head back home, but for some reason, probably a baseball game, there was SO much traffic and we missed it by at least 30-45 minutes, so we decided to drive Erick home. I am really glad that we did. The drive was wonderful, it was raining and the clouds were dark and the scenery was beautiful. It was amazingly calming to be there and talk about things that had nothing to do with Pinnacle and the summer, to remember what we were like and what we did before the summer, to just relax. It's been a long time since I have been able to relax so fully! Thanks Erick for a fantastic day!! We really needed it!!
On the way home we stopped somewhere to eat dinner and we started to talk about medical school and other things that have to do with our future, such as kids. We finally got to say what both of us were really thinking and feeling and got things settled down into an agreement. We're planning to wait to start trying for kids, we are hoping to work it so that we have our first during the summer between his first and second year of medical school. I think it sounds like a good idea, and though I'm anxious and don't like waiting, I feel good about the decision. I think it will work best this way.
On the drive home I cuddled up to Jon like I used to do and he sang to me our favorite songs from when we were dating and during the first part of our marriage. It was really sweet and the whole day just brought us closer together. It's amazing what really fantastic friends can do for you just by being there.
Unfortunately we forgot the camera so we don't have any pictures. Oh well.
