READY, SET, DRIVE what turned out to be seventeen long hours to Antioch, California! From this pic. you can tell that Shawn wasn't too thrilled about this idea. Me, on the other hand, couldn't have been more giddy about the entire thing. Of course, we'll give Shawn a break, it was five a.m.
To make it through the day, happy and alert, we downed two Red Bull's and two Monster power drinks. Kids, don't try that at home.

We saw so many beautiful landscapes during our drive. This is Mt.Shasta, and um, maybe a smeared bug on the windshield.
Look, it's Patrick!

"Shark-Bait, Ooo-Ha-Ha!" (c'mon you know that movie.)
And, Mr. Crabs!
Nicole: "I wonder what will happen if I step on it....?" :-)

Riding bikes around the Bay was so fantastic! We first tried riding on the streets of San Fransisco, but then decided it wasn't the safest idea. Not only did I lose a shoe while zipping downhill, but I hit two cars. We came to a sudden stop while trying to go up hill, and well, being short-legged, I wasn't able to fully reach the ground at that incline. I immediately tipped over onto the car to my left, and just when I thought I had gained my balance, I fell fully onto a parked car to my right. And you know what, I loved every minute of it.
On Pier 39 there were tons of street performers. The really goofy-looking ones were 'pop and locking' on the street for cash! It was so stinkin' hilarious that I couldn't resist jumping right in for this photo-op. It makes me wonder though, are these guys for real? Or are they under-cover insurance agents who get jiggy-with- it on the weekends?
