Our plan to go see Samantha and Jake was delayed by the Blizzard of Oz of February 21st. While it completely shut down airline travel for a couple for days, our reward was its beautiful aftermath.
When we got to California two days later, we not only got to see Samantha and Jake, we also got to see Beth and meet her sister, Laura, who was visiting from Utah. (Sorry, no photos.)
We had all kinds of fun. During a short shopping expedition, startled store customers were treated to Helen's impromptu demonstration of her 50 years of Hula Hoop experience. Bravo, Helen.
from the Palo Alto Creamery Fountain & Grill. The bakery is fabulous but the soda fountain is a masterpiece. Instead of numbers, the clock has big red letters that read EAT AND GET OUT. I absolutely love this place.
The day before our return flight, The Blizzard of Oz II swept into Kansas delaying our return trip by a couple of days. Lucky for us, that allowed us to hang out even longer with Samantha and Jake. No, it wasn't always this exciting ...
but did include a trip to San Francisco to see Jake's new Zillabyte offices at 188 King Street. Located on the Penthouse level, Zillabyte even has a giant balcony with a nice view of the city.AT&T Park
Mega thanks to Samantha and Jake for being such great hosts.
