I know, I know. The road trip has been over for awhile now, and perhaps talking about it more than a year later seems silly. However, there are a few things I want to document that I never got around to doing.
Like heading to Modesto, CA to meet @katiebeth:
This is her at her sister’s school’s playground. This is her doing the splits on a slackline:
I am forever impressed by her slackline skills. Katie is wonderful. She invited me to stay with her at her parent’s house and it was really a treat to meet her mom and dad, as well as her younger sister, Megan. And Tobias the Dog. Isabel and Toby enjoyed walking Megan to school:
Please note Toby’s ears folded back, in order to give him that streamlined edge for speed. Again, impressed.
I was really honored to stay with Katie’s family, and touched when they invited me to stay an extra night after Katie left (to go back to school) so that I could make the trek over to Yosemite (they live mere hours away). Overall, I loved meeting Katie and had an absolute blast with her. Other highlights I neglected catch photos of include watching the AscenDance Project in Berkeley, going to a climbing competition at a nearby gym, and somehow breaking my glasses — oh wait, I did get a photo of that:
And again, I was treated to wonderful service at Katie’s family eye doctor, who gave me a great deal on a new pair.
Now, if only Modesto was closer to Indy.
