This weekend we had a nice visit with my sister. She took the kids to the Bay science center so they could see the snakes and birds and such while D and I went and looked at a couple of homes for sale. Both were very nice homes. One was a foreclosure which would be a great deal but the 9k/yr in property taxes seemed a bit high. The other was great (with a few minor changes to the house) but was a 340k home next to a 120k home. The street was quiet but you can almost hear the property value dropping on the 340k home. After the home shopping we went to eat at Applebees with my sister and the kids. She told us about her vacation and how her job is going. It was a pretty nice time hanging with her. Thanks for the goodies from the science center sis!
