Quarry Lakes Picnic

We ventured out to another park near our house: Quarry Lakes for a picnic. It was such a beautiful day, and there aren't any large crowds here (I guess the $5 parking fee does deter some). The kids explored a bit, had a daddy-daughter race, and we had a picnic a la Dickey's BBQ.

Today's Picnickers: Philip, Angie, Vivi, Brian, Ranica, Aria, Mike & Suporn.

Alum Rock Park

We initiated the the 2010 hiking year with a hike at Alum Rock Park in San Jose today.

And the day's outing would not have been complete without a visit to one of Brian's favorite Mexican restaurants for Veggie Tacos, El Buen Gusto Bakery #2.
