While in the San Diego area we met up with some very good friends of ours, the Berias. We went to the Spaghetti Factory and I thought the waiting area was so fancy and pretty.
One year when they were just youth, I was on a youth conference trip, as a chaperone for the girls from our ward. Alec, Kelly, and Kristie were Seniors and Kyle was already graduated. The conference was held at UC Santa Barbara. The area is just beautiful and the conference was totally fantastic. One evening, however, toward the end of the week, Kyle slips over the wall to see Alec and to check out the activities (girls). That was the evening that the two friends met the two sisters. From that day on they were all inseparable and the rest is history. Both couples have been married for over 20 years and have a fantastic relationship with their spouses and each other. It has been fun to see them grow and mature.
A few years ago, I guess quite a few, before sno shacks were popular in the U.S., Anna and Ama had loved them when they lived in Hawaii. When they got back home, Amadeo built one on one of the San Diego beaches and set it up for one of his friends. The friend still has the shack up and running even though he now hires someone to run it because he has a "real" job. I guess every job is real, but you get what I mean.
