Summer Family Visits

Just like we did last year (see here, here, and here), we traveled to Ohio and Livermore this summer to visit our families. First, Vivian and I spent ten days in Ohio with my family (and also attending my professional association‘s annual conference in Columbus, OH), and then we spent three days in Livermore with Dan’s family. In addition to visiting family, we also saw quite a few friends, explored some new/favorite areas in our hometowns, and, believe it or not, relaxed.

The pictures below highlight our Ohio trip:
