Iron Mountain Hike (04-02-16)

Last weekend I thought I’d bring my dslr with me up Iron Mountain. This was my 3rd or 4th time hiking up the trail so I pretty much new the terrain and was confident that lugging around my camera wouldn’t add too much difficulty to the hike.

Below are a few pics from the hike. If you’d like to see the full album, you can check them out here.

I’m Back!

Well, sorta. I can’t believe it’s been 4 years since I last posted anything on here. That will hopefully change. Bear with me as I try to re-learn WordPress and this whole blogging thing again. The site will go through some changes so feel free to check back on occasion. For now, I leave you with this sexy photo I took from the San Diego Safari Park yesterday. Bye for now!

Karate, Anniversary, Baptism

I’m here at the San Jose International Airport waiting for my delayed flight back to San Diego. I had quite a busy weekend as I attended a karate tournament, anniversary and baptism.

Most of Saturday was spent at my nephews karate tournament at Gunderson High. It was my first time attending a karate tournament and I have to admit, it was a little nerve racking. While growing up, my parents would always tell me they hated watching me play sports because they were always nervous. Well, I got a taste of how they felt watching my nephew, Tobey and my godsons, AJ and Brian at this tournament. It’s definitely worse as a spectator. Maybe its because as a participant, you have control in the outcome. As a spectator, you’re helpless and can only watch. My nervousness was all for not as Tobey took first in his division and AJ and Brian took second and third in theirs. Congrats guys!

I spent most of today traveling back and forth from Berkley to SJ and then from SJ to Fremont to first celebrate my parents 41st Anniversary and then the Baptism of my cousins daughter, Charmaine. One word describes how I feel right now—STUFFED! I ate so much today that I probably won’t eat for the next couple of days. 😉
