Nor Cal Visit

I know, I know!

Waaaayyyy too long between posts. But let me explain. I took 4 days off work to go to Northern California for a visit with the Pops and the Uncles...and it took me two weeks to catch up at work. Seriously!

But I did want to share a few pictures and stories from my trip...
First day, my Dad and Candy took me to Apple Hill.
Home of Apple Farms

And Pony Rides

And Fishing Ponds

And Petty Zoos

But best of all...

Home of HUGE Apple Fritters

And Apple Turnovers!

Next day, I headed up to Grizzly Flats...

To see my Uncle Steve and Aunt Evelyn

I had a great visit, and a wonderful lunch. Still trying to get the chocolate torte recipe from my uncle.

Last day, I visited my Uncle Larry at his museum. I got a backstage tour.

My Uncle Larry made a great dinner for me and my Aunt Lola that night. Hey Lar - where did you get those tamales? I can't find them here!

There was one moment during the trip that just tickled me, so I have to share it with you. My last night at Dad's, we all jumped in the car to go to dinner. As he turned the key (on his new car) the stereo was blasting Cher. Rather than turn the volume down, he turned it up, and yelled over the music to me in the back seat "Can you believe this sound system? It's got 8 speakers!" Turns the volume up again "Listen to that bass!"

I think it is absolutely fricken fabulous that my 68 year old dad still rocks out! Right on Dad! Keep it's what keeps you young.

So glad to have you back! Your pictures were great. Do you think everyone is getting older except us?
