The weekend started with Ben-type family as the mom-niece-brother visit came to an end, then quickly transitioned into Jamie-type family (Dad! GRANDPARENTS!), with just the right amount of overlap. My grandparents are spending the month in Oceanside, and so my Dad and his girlfriend also came for the weekend. They could not have chosen a better weekend, because Southern California is trying to make up for it's lack of summer with gorgeous weather, and they had a beach front condo. Guys, it was a real summer weekend. And, no surprise given my Dad the beer enthusiast and the plethora of North County selection, there was a lot of fine beer going around.
