Apples, Grapes, and Nectarines

Yesterday we discovered the tortures of California traffic as we were driving back from the vineyards in Sanoma. We vowed we would never again leave our lovely Palo Alto. But when Ryan got off work early today, we hopped in the car and once again headed for the beach. (We've also discovered that we are a beach family.) We just stayed for a couple of hours, came home (miraculously avoided traffic), and walked downtown Palo Alto.

Our roommate is incredibly nice. I wish she were staying for the whole time, but she'll be leaving in a week or two. Then the German man is moving in. And by the way, we met him, and he seemed very, very nice as well. (It still may be a bit weird sleeping about three feet and a thin wall away from him, but it's all good.) Anyway, Karen, our roommate, even offered to let us use her 25% employee discount that she gets once a year at Apple. Isn't that sweet?

These are the vineyards. They reminded Ryan very much of Chile.

Here we had the juciest nectarine I've ever had.


  1. Fun! Your life sounds like such an adventure! I look forward to seeing what you're up to. :)

  2. P.S. if you don't take her up on the Apple offer let me know because I will!

  3. Cute shirt!'re a beach family? I want to be a beach family!

    That sounds really scary...the "german man" is moving in. He sounds nice though and hopefully it will be okay!

  4. I'm SO JEALOUS!!! And excited to hear ALL about it in a mere 41 hours! Woo hoo!!!

  5. You had such a strong start! I keep wondering what you're up to! Where are you blogs? Remember, even one-liners are fun.... ;)
