California, comin' home


Oh, California!  Thanks for showing Peter and me an excellent time.  It rained just a little too much (the entire last week) but, you know...nothing we aren't used to.  

The weeks were filled with lots of love and laughter, dinners out with my parents and ball throwing for J.J.  We saw tons of good friends and thawed our hearts after a long, cold winter.  The sun was out the first week and there were a lot of walks.  Trees were flowering.  It was perfect.  

I saw my sister.  Peter ran 50k in 5 hours and 7 minutes.  We hiked almost every day.  There's no nicer vacation destination than my family's little "resort."

We are already looking forward to going back.  And, for the time being, we are enjoying the sun and beautiful weather here in Nuremberg.  Who knew it could be this nice in Germany in March?  

Here are some pictures if you are interested.  Enjoy!

Cute and historic Nevada City, California.

Looking good at about 12 miles.

The beautiful American River Canyon.  



American River Canyon....with low water.  

After a long winter or almost no rain.  


And then, after four straight days of rain.  Huge difference.  


Oh the nose.
