Beach day in February!

70 degrees in February?  The rest of the country is digging out of heavy snow.  Yes, it’s nice to live in California.

Fishing at the boardwalk

My parents and the kids and I went to Santa Cruz for a spur of the moment fishing trip at the pier. It had been a while since i took Tulia fishing and I wanted to go somewhere that we would be sure to catch something other than a snag fish.

After Tulia pulled up the first fish, it promptly bled and convinced her that she didn’t want to catch anymore fish. We later had dinner on the pier.

Fremont older hike and hail

Took the family out for a short hike in Fremont older. The clouds appeared to be looming when we left home but the rain had not made an appearance so I thought we should be able to squeeze in a quick hike.

FAIL

The skies opened up and dumped and hailed on us. We scurried back after about 15 minutes.

Tulia had my p&s camera and found some interesting things to shoot.

Turkeyday Ride

So every year in the South bay there is a pre-Thanksgiving ride up Kennedy Rd and up Kennedy trail to the top.  It’s a 2000′ climb to the top.  This year I took Tulia up to the top on the Big Dummy. My buddy Chris rode with me.  Several people that I have ridden with and met through mtbr.com were there.

The ride starts in Los Gatos in front of Summit Bike shop.  We arrived at 10 till 8.  I spotted a bunch of people that I rode with in Oregon, and on the Big Basin MBTB epic.

This is a great ride.  It’s a pretty steep grind up, but having all these people here really makes it fun.  Rumor was that 2 pigs and several turkey’s were hauled up.  Also kegs, Tequila, and beers of all sorts.  We brought up some Kona brews.

Tulia was a trooper and rode tail the whole way.  She didn’t even complain.  The doughnut holes and promise of goodies up at the top helped.

Countless people talked with me about how cool the Big Dummy setup is.  It’s nice riding this thing on a ride other than a grocery run or dropping the kids off at school.  I was really impressed with how easy (relative to the task at hand) the dummy was to pedal up the hill.  Slow and low is all it took.

Tulia says “if I don’t be good I’ll get fired. ”

“fired!? What do you think that means?” I ask.

Tulia’s quotes

Looking at my old shoes, Tulia says, “your shoes are broken. You should get new ones. You should get rock star ones. They would be so cute on you.”

Murdock park

Took the kids to murdock park. This is another childhood stomping ground for me. First place I discovered poison oak was in the creek. Took the dummy and Tulia rode her hand me down 18″ bike.
