California Trip

So our trip to California was great! We were able to hang out with Aaron, Carrie and Eli a bunch. Plus we were able to walk around San Francisco (Is that the right spelling?) and see China Town, See's candy, and a really neat Sottish shop. Carrie also took me to a really neat store called the Berkley Bowl and to a great Indian shop. In the Berkley bowl there were tons of hybrid veggies and fruits like purple and orange broccoli, honey suckle plums (Which are fantastic!), red and white carrots etc. Did anyone else know that carrots were originally white? We just bred them to be orange.

I also go to make my yearly Trader Joe's stop....I went three times while we were there. I just really needed to get my fill as I don't think that I will be able to get back to one for a while. Maybe one time I will live by one.

I did not take a ton of pictures while I was there but here are a few pics of China town.

I have to explain this photo a bit. I love pictures of markets on a busy street, so I decided to try taking one my self. The woman in the picture does not look too happy though.

Thanks again to Arron and Carrie for letting us come stay with them!


  1. I'm glad you had fun! We sure enjoyed having you both here.

  2. It sounds like you had a blast there!! I wish we could go too sometime :)

  3. Fun times. Did you know that I am always driving by Trader Joe stores but I never go to them. I can't figure out their adverstising so I never go. It looks like some old time newspaper and I get bored just looking at it. lol I know, it's shallow. So what do you like about trader Joes?
