Graduation Celebration

To celebrate Joshua's Gradution we took a trip to Cali.  We boarded the train in Salt Lake and my sister picked us up in Emeryville.  It was a relaxing, fun way to travel.  Cali Trip
I was able to read two books and bind my new Maverick Star quilt.

While in Cali we spent a day in San Fransico.  The ferry ride and tour of Alcatraz was a highlight.

We had lunch at Hard Rock Cafe.  Seeing pictures, guitars, and memoriblia of some of his favorite rock stars made this the perfect choice.  Although I would have liked clam chower in a sour dough bread bowl.

Next we went to the aquarium.  Were we got to touch sting rays and sharks ( little baby sharks but still cool)

The next day Josh got to tour Google with his Uncle who works there.  This is something my boys look forward to and really enjoy.  After the Google tour we went to a tech museum.  This is Josh manning a probe to do repairs in space.  He was pretty good at manuvering it.  Maybe NASA is in his future.Cali Trip 
 We had a great trip!  Looking forward to catching up on everyone's blogs.

  4. I love that train trip!!!! Aren't the Sierras gorgeous? Did you still see a lot of snow up there?

    The trip looks fabulous. My nephew is a docent/guide on Alcatraz and loves it. It had to be a blast to visit Google too. What fun and you made great memories.
