Muir Woods

While in San Fransisco area we stopped at Muir Woods. This was a nice treat to be outside and away from the business of downtown San Jose.

As you can see I had to be the trouble maker. I found this stump that was completely hollowed out inside. What? someone had to crawl around in the trees.

Go Sharks!!

The last night in San Jose, we had the pleasure of being hosted by one of the owners of the San Jose Sharks. He invited all 16 of us to his box and we watched the game in the most style I will ever have. There was beer, wine, champagne, fancy snack things, dinner, the works. We had a great time.

Here the Sharks are, entering the stadium. They had this cool shark head that they skated through when the entered the arena, kinda hard to see here, but you get the idea.

Crystal's TV show...or wanna be.

The travels with the Latvians have landed us in San Jose. Here we spent a day going through the Kinade factory where they make the prints and canvases and all that jazz. It's actually a pretty cool process, much more work than I expected.

We stumbled across Kinkade's studio where he does his painting shows and what not. This was my first time on a TV set, so I decided to host my own show...or something like that eh?

Happy Birthday!!

Last weekend we took Crystal's dad to the OSU football game for his birthday. For those of you keeping track, the Beavers lost 27-29. It was still fun though. Here are just a couple of pictures from the game. Enjoy!
