San Francisco & Napa in February

Below is a quick slide show with pictures of our trip to San Francisco. The weather was great after anticipating rain at first, and we appreciate Amit's hospitality.

Wednesday - Alcatraz, time in the city
Thursday - Napa
Friday - Biking to Sausalito from downtown via the Golden Gate Bridge! Also dinner at Kasa Indian Eatery (Mmmmmm! 5 stars!)
Saturday - Breakfast at Hobees and off to Santa Cruz! (Randomly running into Chris & Abby who we knew from Calvary Memorial in Oak Park, IL)
Sunday - diet coke and mentos??? ;-)

Gala





Last night we went to a Gala celebrating our church's 200th anniversary. It was a great night learning about the history of the church and spending time with friends. Just imagine 120 tables of 8-10 people singing the Doxology a capella - it was a great end to the night. God has truly blessed this church for 200 years and we pray He will continue to do so for another 200 years.

Raisins!!!



Todd found a great deal on raisins, so of course we bought them. After Todd's $10 free gift certificate 72 packages of Disney High School Musical raisins cost $1.08 (including shipping). Todd would also like to point out that the $10 has an opportunity cost, so it really cost $11.08 :-)

Studying

Todd passed the CFA level 1, but now he has to study for the CFA level II. He got a package with study materials, and included were these encouraging postcards to send to family and friends - real encouraging :)

They say:

My fashion sense is off








I sleep when I can









I feel like I'm in grade school again.









My dog is giving me the look.








Coffee is a food group.









I keep missing my bus stop.
