My brother, Randy, came down to Boise for a visit and we then traveled to visit our two cousins in Loomis, California. With them, we spent time hanging out and visiting San Francisco and Sacramento. We had not seen each other for 15 years and it was great to reestablish connections. with Bruce and Joel and their wives, Judith and Mary Jo.
