Family Trip Photos

This past weekend Michelle and I hopped in the car with my parents and headed to the San Jose area to visit my brother.

We made a stop along the way at Casa de Fruta. It’s a little tourist trap with an old, Venetian-style merry go round and a place where you can pan for gold. They also have a wine store, a place to buy dried fruits and nuts, and a candy/ice cream store. It’s totally worth a stop if you have little kids in the car that are driving you nuts.

They also have a whole shelf dedicated to hot sauce.

There’s also a train for taking photos.

This is a sign in my brother’s neighborhood. While I was reading it, I jumped the curb  and drove through his living room. Why would they make a sign with so many words?

This is my niece, Myla. She is the reason we made a trip up north. At two months old, she is pretty boring.  She eats, sleeps, and poops. Even her parents do things to make her more exciting, like dress her up as a sandwich.

Here is Michelle, chatting with Myla about her plans for a summer internship at Woo! and negotiating the pay rate for such a highly desirable position.

I’d ask you to stay turned for more exciting things, but there really wasn’t too much going on this weekend. It was good to spend some quiet time with the family, which is now one person bigger.
