Donna and I went for a little hike at Garland Ranch yesterday… President’s Day. If yer counting (and I am)… it was about six and a half miles with a total ascent of just shy of 2000 feet (by GPS). One thing became pretty clear to me… that is that it’s not too early to start getting in shape for this summer’s backpacking adventures.
I made a quick little video of our outing…

Spencer turned 21 on Saturday (10/11/14). How crazy is that? Both our boys are over 21 now.
We celebrated as a family that evening. And I, of course couldn’t resist the urge to record the event for posterity. Spencer was a sport which made it fun.
We took him to the liquor store on Graham Hill Road for his first legal alcohol purchase, then had dinner at El Jardin’s in Santa Cruz. Spence had the chimichanga… his usual. Donna and I were a bit over-served so had to rely on Jack to drive us home.

Goes to this tomato grown in my tomato garden… It’s a Cherokee Purple, which of course is an heirloom variety.
It also wins the biggest tomato award. It’s about the size of a giant grape fruit.
