I always though my life would be really cool with a soundtrack that played behind me all day long. Now I know what I can start each morning with.
Your Theme Song is Beautiful Day by U2
It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away"
You see the beauty in life, especially in ordinary everyday moments.
And if you're feeling down, even that seems a little beautiful too.

Oh yeah, ummm I decided I was going to do something a little crazy since school was out and I don't have to fit the "teacher mold". I now have several hot pink strands in my hair, but you can only see it in a ponytail :) I'll post a picture when I find a good one of the back of my head.

Bob spends most of his time rehearsing the brass line on whatever field they can find. I found a quiet place to read to help me pass the time. That's me and Mr. Twain.
Most of the week was spent driving from the hotel in Turlock to the practice field in Hilmar (home of the Hilmar Cheese Factory... I took the tour!). Everyone sleeps on the floor in the gym. How cozy :) We did get a hotel room for a few nights since it would be a long time till Bob sleeps in a real bed again, plus it was nice to have a real shower! Here's Bob at rehearsal.
On Wednesday they had a free day and it meant a car ride into San Fransisco. We took the brass staff with us and learned that you can have 5 or 6 conversations going at the same time while Bob is driving, but you can't do it while he's parking...
The Tigers were in town to play the Giants and we are not ones to turn down a baseball game. AT & T park is an awesome stadium to watch a game, though we did switch our outfield seats for some slightly less sunny in the upper level.
From the park we hit Pier 39 and Fisherman's Wharf. Such a touristy place, but it had its moments. We made the 5 block trek uphill to see Lombard Street, the "crookedest" street in the world. Sunset on the beach was too good to pass up, so it was off the Ghirardelli Square to wait.
I'm still a bit jet lagged and have many more pictures from the trip, but they'll have to wait for another blog. All in all, it was a great trip and I'm so glad I got to spend a little bit of my summer with my husband (for a change!)

I have had plenty of Wii time since I don't have to compete with husband or child this week. It's been great for some late night entertainment when I can't "turn off my mind".

My plans for my 4 weeks? Plenty of pool time, a few good books, movie marathons and getting sod in the backyard. I also have plenty of time to devote to guitar hero so I can beat Bob when he gets back home!
We went to Joe Dimaggio's for our "last dinner"... Bob has to eat off the food truck for most of the summer and I don't cook for one :) Such a swanky place, and such incredible food. We both had to take part of our entree's home in order to fit in some tiramisu. I am a sucker for a good creme brulee or tiramisu, and JD's did not disappoint. Here's a post-dinner picture.
