For Christmas this year we spent a few days in LA with Zack’s family, then went up to see mine in San Jose.
In LA we visited with Zack’s family at their house, toured Universal Studios, which I’d never done before (overpriced, TBH), toured Hollywood with Zack’s sister, and went to the Getty Museum with her and their parents.
In San Jose we got to spend some time with my sister and her kids at my parents’ house for Christmas day. A cousin whom I haven’t seen in many years also came to visit from Texas while we were there and stayed with my parents too. There was an earthquake while he was there, but he didn’t feel it. We all met up with his dad at Mom’s favorite restaurant in San Francisco, the Cliff House.
Toward the end of the trip Zack and I went to Hakone Gardens in Saratoga, which is a nice Japanese garden that we hadn’t seen in a few years. It was nice to get some quiet time after all of the activity.
