Dining at the Napa Rose with Ruston and Jacob

After exploring the parks we were hungry. Good thing I set up reservations a month ago for the Napa Rose! Theresa and I have enjoyed it every time we've gone. This will be Ruston and Jacob's first time.

Flying to Michigan and Ian's first White Castle experience - 10/3/2014

Every year, right around this time, Theresa and I take a trip up to Michigan. We visit with family of course, but it's also the season for apple orchards and pumpkin carving. Plus the weather is a little bit chillier than California so it helps us get into the Fall spirit. This year we've got another passenger joining us. Off we go!

After visiting T's grandma a little earlier today, we're driving towards the St. Louis airport. We leave tomorrow, but tonight we're staying with T's sister's in-laws.
Amy happens to be celebrating a special birthday (we won't say which one) and we're going to go out to dinner to celebrate.
