Museums and Visitors

 Visitors first...


Wyatt Berrier and his co-workers who are participating in a Chain Saw Internship in the forests outside of Santa Barbara came to LA for the International Women's March.
They pitched their tents and camped out in our back yard. 

Hardy (and very sweet) crew!

Next, a visit to LACMA (the Los Angeles County Museum of Art) with Jess' mom Amelia and Suzanne Siegel.  Fun get-together and fabulous museum.

An Indian chest I particularly like there--that orangy-rose color!

Toby still has that twinkle in his eye


as he had a few years ago:

And, for those wondering about our New Zealand crew,

it's getting into winter there and the Panama contingent are feeling the cold!

Great trip to the Atlanta area to visit Chris and Francie, meet up with Linda and Jeff.
This lovely Gibbs Garden--
filled with millions of blooming daffodils.
Riding the tram,
mugging for the camera.
Gorgeous branches.
Dinner that night with the Peakes:  Caroline, Emily, Sara Cate and Whitney with Auntie Lou.
Rings on Sara Cate's fingers. 
At the Speers' cozy cabin in the mountains.
Better than brownies?  Licking the spoons.
Fun, fun visit. Thank you all!
