All the fun in Julian

We went to the cute, little mountain town of Julian, during our stay in San Diego and had a great time!
Julian takes their apple pies very seriously 

and apparently litter: 
; )

We were all so shocked that we had to pay to use a public restroom that the thought of holding the door for the next person did not occur to us and we spent 6 quarters! LOL! Such tourists! 

My sweet aunt and uncle met us for lunch and we all chose a cute little place with a gorgeous view of the mountains. They sold an 8 pound apple pie! It was $8.25 a slice and about 8 inches tall! That's some serious pie!
But we held out to eat at the Julian Pie Co.
It was just as amazing as I remembered! My future hubby took me there on our first date.

Dogs seemed to just keep finding Joy.
Here's one in La Mesa

 and this one in Julian found her after we ate:

Too cute!
 Then we climbed up a gazillion steps to a 200 year old cemetery which provided a gorgeous view of the town.

 It looked like something out of a movie and the kids loved it and enjoyed reading the tomb stones for a glimpse of history.

After Julian, we had dinner in the home of a dear friend that I'm so grateful for.
This dear man was the one who shared the gospel with my hubby 27 years ago before we met and it changed his life! He always referred to him as his Father in the Faith.
And whenever I read 1Thess. 2:8, I think of him.
"Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well."

He's always been so hospitable and this night was no exception. He also invited a big crowd of our friends and relatives. We had quite a loud, fun night full of fellowship. 

And now we all know that bison is quite tasty. LOL
