We've been in California for 4 days now.

Tuesday Oct. 2 - Arrived in Palo Alto California at 1am and stayed with Kiel's Aunt (Linda) and Uncle (Rand). Linda and Rand let us stay in their beautiful home for a couple nights and it was so great getting to know them. Kiel's family was really nice. Kiel left in the morning so Andy and I went to Ocean View to get lunch at Sono Sushi which had sushi boats floting around and was really awesome.

Wednesday Oct. 3 - Andy and I drove to San Anselmo to meet his Aunt (Sue) and Uncle (Fritz). They took us to Fairfax for burritos and we had lunch in a park and then drove to Bolinas CA which was a town of hippies and crazies. There were also fisherman and surfers in the area and we saw a seal in the water. It was really fun.

Thursday Oct. 4 - Andy, Kiel, and I went to San Fransisco to meet up with Kate's best friend, Mora and we all had lunch at an Indian Buffet. I killed the clutch in San Fran and then we went to Berkley to meet up

with Amanda and saw Karin from high school. We all got Brazilian food/smoothies at a food truck then Andy and I went to Oakland to meet up with Eric. We had food at a bar and then walked around a park (Lake Merritt) in Oakland that had "Fairyland" which was a creepy children's park.

Friday Oct. 5 - We are looking into getting the clutch fixed. We had dinner at Sue and Fritz' but the power went out so they couldn't cook the fish. We had soup and salad by candle light and then played scrabble and tried to eat all the ice cream in the freezer before it melted. Allison won scrabble.
