C&C Road Trip to Santa Cruz, CA

This last weekend the College and Career group went on a road trip to Santa Cruz, CA. After enjoying lunch at Armadillo Willy’s we drove over to discover the “Mystery Spot” “The Mystery Spot was discovered in 1939 and offers numerous variations of gravity, perspective, compass, velocity and height. It is an area of about 150 feet in diameter located in the redwood forests just outside of Santa Cruz. Within the Mystery Spot the laws of physics do not apply. It appears as though every law of gravitation has gone haywire, turned topsy-turvy and just doesn’t make sense. Some unseen magnetism or phenomenon just upsets all former ideas of equilibrium.” (according to the brochure)

Afterwards we drove to Marianne’s Ice Cream and then down to the boardwalk. We made camp on the beach where we enjoyed a bon fire and music played by nick and jake. A marshmallow fight around the campfire ended the night and we soon made our way back to Sacramento. It was a relaxing and enjoyable day! I am looking forward to the next C&C road trip!

Love and Marriage

On Saturday, September 22, 2007, we celebrated the nuptials of Elizabeth and Range. The celebration took place in South Lake Tahoe, looking out over the lake. I had persuaded my good buddy Mike to accompany me to the wedding. . . poor guy. He didn’t know a soul there, except for the bride whom he had met 2 days previously. After putting up with a very grumpy Mike (he did get better as the day went on. hehe) for 2 hours on the drive to Tahoe, we arrived at the residence where the wedding was to take place. It was a beautiful wedding and Beth looked gorgeous!! After a wonderful dinner, the dance floor was prepared . . . I finally caught the bouquet (Biff was scouting me out of course) and we had fun with the YMCA and Conga line. I wish Eliza and Range all the happiness in the world and am glad that they live so close to me (they had better stay that way too!!)

This cake was delish!!! I had a vanilla slice
with fresh strawberries in the middle as well
as on the top! A++
