(I'm way behind on posts but I'll do what I can to update the blog this week as I receive more photos.)

On Wednesday Chad took me out to dinner. He suggested we go to a restaurant we hadn't been before. I was a little confused as to why he wanted to go to this place on a Wednesday night, but really didn't think much of it. So after he got off work we headed down there, put in our food order and sat there talking, enjoying the evening. About 20 minutes after we got there our good friends L&A from the Washington DC metro area popped their heads into our booth. I looked at them and just sat there, thinking my mind was playing tricks on me. I couldn't believe that they would be in the same restaurant. In our town. On a Wednesday. She had just emailed me that morning from DC -- it seemed nearly impossible.

Once the shock wore off (or at least the initial shock, I was still surprised for the next 24 hours or so, really) we all sat down, ate dinner and headed to our house. Apparently our friends, Chad and my parents were all in on the surprise visit. So sneaky!

For the next four days we showed them our town (they'd never been here before), went to Yosemite, Shaver Lake and did a few other things together before we took them to the airport Sunday night. It was such a quick trip (for us) but I feel so lucky they made the effort to come out here. Talk about a wonderful surprise!
