Hello

Long time no post, here's a quickie on what's new with B&P.

A few of you tracked our California trip over on Facebook.  We visited San Francisco, Yosemite and wine country near Vacaville.  San Fran was nice, but they got nothin' on Des Moines on the foodie front. 


My favorite in the Bay Area was renting a Tesla and driving the electro-beast over to Muir woods to hike 1,000 year old Red Woods.


I'll post more trip pics later, we covered a lot of ground:  Highway 1 drive to the Pacific at Half Moon Bay, a multi-mile hike through Yosemite to Vernal Falls, stealth stop at Lake Tahoe and a ridiculous hilltop vineyard stay near Vacaville.  If you book hotels and have never done airBnB.com, please try it.  Curls did a great job finding rental homes in Noe Valley and wine country.






Pigtails is 12 now and has had the same bedroom decor since poopy diapers.  Speaking of, the walls were meconium orange. 



She wanted to pull the carpet, we found the floor half painted to cover pet stains.  She asked for more fluffy colors and less cat whiz, here's where we're at:


She has volleyball practice tonight, hence the spanx.  Working on installing a modular closet system now.  The box says "EZ 15 Minute Install," the instructions are 30 pages deep and come with a sack full of 50 nuts and drywall hooks.  It'll be a two day project.

Off to pick her up from practice now, leave a comment and tell me what's new!
