So, what have I been up to lately?
Well, I got to participate in a mini-family reunion!
My aunt and cousin set this up,
and I got to see some cousins and cousins-once-removed
who I haven't seen in over a decade!
Making the trip from soggy Minnesota was my dad;
since The Girl and I enjoyed ourselves when we went there...
I thought we'd hit Duff's CakeMix.
My dad wasn't so sure at first...
... but he was game,
and soon we had two fancy cakes to take to the reunion.
However, we did find something on our way back
through the hellish LA traffic that he was excited about:
My dad says he's wanted to try Pink's for about twenty years,
so of course we stopped for some dawgs for lunch.
(They had a veggie dog, btw, if like me you're so inclined.)
And what did my dad think?
As you can see by his face,
he was pretty dang excited.
So, all in all, a good day.
He got his his Polish dog,
a story to take home about nutty California...
...where they pay big bucks to decorate their own cakes.
