Don’t worry too much, ’cause I’m back.
I had a very full week, indeed!
I spent most of last week with my parents and siblings in South Lake Tahoe. My parents own a timeshare up there, and it’s a good place to go to relax. You can pretty much spend all your time in the resort area without even going down to town or to the lake… there’s a lot to do there.
My photo gallery from the trip is up. Most of the photos are of Maddie, but that tends to happen when you’re around a cute little kid. Hah.
I also took Bren for his first geocache find.
Left for home on Friday afternoon, since K was scheduled to fly into SJC later that evening. I made the drive by myself, since my sister and her family decided to stay another day. What a long and lonely drive… especially since I had to take a MAJOR detour through the mountains because of a forest fire. It took me close to five hours to get back home.
Saturday morning, we left for Monterey. It was really nice and cool near the bay… we loved it! I took him for his first visit to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, which I know he really enjoyed. If you get a chance, go check out the Jellyfish exhibits there. They’re kickass.
After spending the night in Pacific Grove, we left the next morning for the Gilroy Garlic Festival, where we met up with Mish and Andy. Lots of expensive (but gooood) food, some garlic chocolate, garlic ice cream, one bat t-shirt and a failed geocache hunt later, we headed home.
It’s good to be home and in our own bed. My back was beginning to hurt!
