It rained like a mutha all around Southern Cali today! Staying in would have been the more logical choice except Aric, Ashlyn, and I were invited to check out Brian and Grace's new house.
Aric, Ashlyn, and I stopped off in Rowland Heights to have lunch with my mother-in-law on the way. Traffic was pretty bad due to the weather. People completely forget how to drive normal when it rains. =/ Aric told me that on his way home from class today, he witnessed an overzealous driver take an onramp too fast and that car ended up spinning out and hitting the wall. *Zoiks!* =O
and Grace recently moved to Stevenson Ranch. It's pretty far North
of LA (by Six Flaggs Magic Mountain). Because of the rain and horrible
Saturday traffic, it took us nearly two and a half hours to get to
Brian and Grace's! I dozed off at one point and woke up when we got
there. I sleepily asked Aric, "Are we in San Jose yet?"
It felt like a long road trip...most of our afternoon was spent in
had dinner at Wood Ranch BBQ and spent the whole evening hanging out
with them. Ashlyn had a fun time terrorizing Brian and Grace's dog,
Grace's belly doesn't look too much bigger than when I saw her last. She looks great!...peaceful and glowing! I can't wait until the day their baby is born!....just another month or so. WOW!
left Brian and Grace's a little after 11pm. By the time we got on
the freeway, the rain had miraculously stopped and we made it back
in an hour. Aric must've been hauling ass because Brian and Grace
live exactly 75 miles away.
*YAWN!* I'm pooped!...whatta long day! =)
