The Buckners have been family friends since I was a little girl. Their family and ours have gone on vacations together, and spent just about every Easter morning together for the last 20 years or so. I was so happy when Carrie told me that they would be visiting the LA area for a grad school visit. We went out to eat at California Chicken Cafe (one of Nick's favorites), and then to Pinkberry--yummy!!
It is amazing to have people from home visit. Although it was super cold when they came (thanks for bringing the Ohio weather with you!), we still kept warm with our chatting. :)
