Hey kids!

Hope ya’ll had a great 3 day weekend (for those of you here in the US)!  Ours was pretty busy as Dana’s family came out from Arizona to visit, and we ran around a bit, BBQ’ed up at the pool, and generally relaxed.  How we managed to squeeze 7 people, plus my dog into our 2 bedroom condo is beyond me.  Of course, we had a Xmas party a couple of years ago, and I think there were about 22 people here!

We attempted to head out to Newport Beach on 4th of July, but even by noon, the road heading to the pier was jammed, and there was no parking to be had.  So we opted to head back to Costa Mesa to our favorite little bar, The Goat Hill Tavern. I’ve been here dozens of times, and ever time I go back, they’ve added more junk to the walls, the ceilings, where ever they can hang stuff.  It really does look like someone’s basement exploded with all the funkiness they have there.  The picture below should tell you all you need to know, and really, that’s not even a tenth of it!  But with 141 beers on tap, and Anaheim Angel baseball players that hang out thee after games it’s always a good time!

Went out for a bike ride Tuesday night.  Good to be back out there.  It was pretty breezy most of the way, but I managed to get in about 22 miles before dark!

No real plans for the weekend yet.  Dana’s Mom is here with us all week, and I think she flies home on Saturday.

That’s all I got for now.  Check back in next week, and be sure to tell all your friends about us!  And now on to some pics from last week, and us at the Goat…
