Today we drove up the beautiful california Salinas Valley to Tony's Mom's house in Pleasanton. Had a wonderful evening with Grandparents. Michelle seems to be taking the idea of being with Grandma for a while pretty well.

The morning was spent frantically packing and cleaning the house for Jen (Cousin acting as housesitter). Chris and Tony tried to squeeze in an hour or 2 of WOW, but there was a big patch Tuesday and it took upwards of an hour to download and install on Anne's machine. Tony Leveled (18) while waiting!!!
No more WOW till December (begin withdrawls).

Michelle was being her usual charming self at dinner. She made us all double over with laughter at least 3 times during dinner. Tony Warned grandparents that they need to be stoic while driving, because Michelle will say incredibly funny things at random, which can be a big distraction!!

Tomorrow (Thursday in CA), we drop Michelle off, get to the Airpoirt and fly. Likely we won't be posting another blog until Friday evening, at which time, the Blog will start calling it Saturday (NZ).
