Today Eric and I spent the day at Disneyland park. It was the perfect day, too, about 70 and sunny. It was a little more full than I thought it would be on a random Tuesday in March, but certainly not crowded by any means. We got to almost everything we wanted to get to, though spending about an hour in Innoventions may have cut down on some of our park time. But any day… (more)
It was pretty cold and rainy this morning so that put a damper on our excitement to go to Pismo Beach. We checked out of the Peach Tree Inn and headed toward Pismo beach anyway, but didn’t end up stopping. We continued onward, driving straight to Santa Barbara. We parked along the wharf and walked around. There were a lot of people out even though it was cold and drizzly! We saw this skate park… (more)
Waking up at the Glen Oaks motel was pretty fabulous. The little gas fireplace and heated bathroom floors were still awesome. We walked down the road to a little general store and bought some muffins to eat for breakfast on our patio. They had gas pumps outside the store as well at 3.10/gallon! Thats high even for this area where the normal is about 2.30. We had planned to drive just a little ways down… (more)
The task of this morning was to get back to the airport and get our rental car. That all went quite smoothly and we had our car by 7:30am. we were quite excited to hop into our shiny rented P.T Cruiser!! Super fun. Next stop was visiting our friend Bruno who is doing co-op at Apple in Cupertino. After some lovely drives down California freeways we found Bruno and took a little tour around Apple’s… (more)
Yesterday evening we endured the really long flight from Boston to SFO. Our hotel is only about a mile from the airport so having a complimentary shuttle ride there was nice. The hotel is also located about 100 yards from the BART station we need to get into San Francisco. And the room is cute, too! So today was our tour day in San Francisco and neither Eric nor I had been there before. We… (more)
Soup Day 2009 was upon us, and thus the residents of BBM 1607 made soup. 3 gallons of soup. Yes indeed, we began with 9 pounds of potatoes. Baked, peeled, and diced them. And after 4 hours of work, we have 12 quarts of baked potato soup in a giant pot. And we will be eating it for many days to come. We have documented this experience for future reference on bulk soup making.
Had my birthday about a week ago, just getting to putting pictures online now. A few days before my birthday, Evey and I went snowboarding at Sunday River (video after the break). It was a freezing day (high of 15 in town, 10 on mountain… -15 on mountain peak in shadows with wind… you get the picture). Convinced Evey to take a lesson in the morning that went very well, hooray for linking turns! The… (more)
