GWnsYM – California Days

We’ve enjoyed visits with friends/ministry partners here in north-central California this past week and weekend.  We head out for Yosemite tomorrow morning and will be somewhere along the way down the road tomorrow night.  We’ve decided to skip Hoover Dam and just head straight to the Grand Canyon.  We may spend most of a day there if we can stand stopping to admire a huge gash in the ground.  I think we’re all ready to be home.

This is at Patterson Pass (I think that’s the correct name) between Tracy, CA and Livermore, CA (home to the famous Livermore Labs).  Frankly, I can’t see how any place named “Livermore” could be a good place to be.  The sustained winds were probably 40 mph there.  It was impressive…I was holding Dayton to keep him from getting blown away.

This is what happens when you let the wife back up the truck.  🙂
Our hosts took us to a Friday night football game.  Great experience for the boys who almost watched some of the game.  Dayton didn’t mind the hot dog, chips and soda.  (Californians call it “soda” btw.)
This was a really cool Mongolian BBQ eatery.  You fill up a bowl with all the raw ingredients you want and can keep in the bowl and then they fry it up on this big flat wok/grill thing.
We enjoyed an American/California contemporary church experience today at Monte Vista Chapel, topped off with a baptismal in a pond of 20 believers.  This was Kevin who is the boyfriend of one of our MK’s here.  Cool!

  1. Holy Gigantic Pinecone, Batman!! And I've been noticing that Cameron is posed the same way in every picture… are you sure you didn't just leave him home and take a cardboard cut out on your trip?


  2. Sometimes it feels like we brought a cardboard cutout! At one point I told Cameron, "Go stand by that tree and look bored." He grunted, "That shouldn't be hard." Yeah, that's why I said it.
