May 17, 2012 - "Casa de Fruta"
Marc did tell us that we would pass a place called Casa de Fruta, and they had a great selection of......well....well....Fruit! We are on our way to Napa and we wanted to head into Napa from the east, because going through San Francisco would've been a trip to hell with 53 feet of responsibility! So we headed north, and then east from Atascadero and ended up stopping at "Casa de Fruta" <<< yep, it's 'House of Fruit' :-) We have never heard of this place, and I, (not she) absolutely hate TOURIST TRAPS!:-) But I (we) really liked this place,...Jump to full entry

Our journey north in California took us to the Thousand Trails San Benito Preserve, arriving on April 11.

So the decision to get her a set of doggy boots was purely practical but it was worth it just for the comical value of seeing her take her first tentative steps.Jump to full entry

As we climbed through the mountains away from LA the horribly noisy and uneven concrete freeways gradually diminished to be replaced by the smooth uncrowded highways that we were more used to. Instead of gripping the wheel with white knuckles, endlessly tapping the brakes avoiding the suicidal lane hoppers at last I could kick off the shoes, let the cruise control take over and just enjoy the changing scenery. The highway dropped into the fertile San Joquin valley which produces all varieties of fruit from green fields which stretch as far...Jump to full entry
Jun 29, 2008 - Hollister, CA
Elijah and Alexis spent the day around the park today. They went on the Carousel, Train and of course went shopping and ended the day with yet another Ice Cream! We all turned in early as we knew they had a big surprise in the morning. Mommy had decided to take the bus to us so she could see her babies! Now who missed who?Jump to full entry
