Quick "Am-Trip"

We took advantage of some leftover tickets to enjoy a Grover-SLO-Grover Surfliner trip with some of the kids, including a walk down to Mitchell Park in SLO. All the pics are here. P.S. It was the first weekend the Surfliner Cafe was carrying Stone's new IPA: Tangerine Express. Life is grand.

Christmas at the Atascadero Zoo

Despite the temps at 30 or below, we thoroughly enjoyed a little adventure to the Atascadero Zoo to see the animals receive their Christmas presents. And the visit to Denny's following was pretty fun as well. Judy wasn't there, but they did have chocolate milk! All the pics are here.

Santa Arrives by Train

We boarded the same Amtrak Pacific Surfliner as Santa (and his wife) in Grover Beach and arrived to throngs of people on the platform in SLO. Santa went over to the San Luis Obispo Railroad Museum to greet all the kids from a "throne" on the La Cuesta. The odd pic shows the progress thus far on our Christmas window at home - getting close. All the pics are here.

Thanksgiving 2016

Braised ribs (Lexi loved 'em), gramma's rolls, 7-layer salad with plenty of dressing, rainbow jello, garlic mashed potatoes, and a turkey (wait for it...). Nothing like cooking with the kids. And we got started on the Christmas window. Very thankful... More pics here.
