Bar Mitzvah I

We left around 1 p.m. to drive up to Dana Point to visit Bill and Jan. They've rented a great condo just a couple of blocks from the beach - it's beautiful there. Jan's brother Hank was staying with them for the weekend. We had fun chatting, and then we agreed to meet for dinner before the service and we left for our motel in Irvine to change clothes.

We couldn't find the Asiana restaurant that Hank wanted to go to, so we settled for Taleo - a very nice Mexican restaurant, where we got more food than any of us could finish. Luckily, Sniders had a cooler in their car.

On to the synagogue - the service was short and sweet - Jacob read a couple of prayers and did very well indeed. Afterwards cookies and beverages were served, and we had a chance to see Eric and Reiko.
