Business Trip

Matthew has started to take more business trips for work, which is especially nice when I get to go as well. Last November, right after Thanksgiving, he had to go to Fresno. Me being the California girl that I am begged to go too. We made a nice little vacation out of it.

 We left on Friday and spent the weekend in my hometown, Hollister. We drove some scenic routes to visit our favorite wineries. 

California may not have trees that change color with the season, but the grapevines do.

On Sunday we got to see this lovely couple get married in a small, super cute, backyard wedding, with their dog as the best man.

We drove to a place outside of Fresno on Sunday so we could spend Monday at the Sequoia National Park. 

Ancient pictographs on Hospital Rock drawn by the Native Americans. 

The sequoias of Sequoia National Park.

The General Sherman Tree is the largest known living single stem tree, by volume.

We even got to see some wildlife while there.

Matthew had his meeting on Tuesday in Fresno. I went shopping while he was occupied. We drove back to San Jose after he was done and flew back home early Wednesday morning. I'm enjoying his business trips since it is an easy way for us to take a mini vacation. He has a convention in Toronto next month, which I'm really looking forward to. We're talking about spending the weekend at Niagara Falls.
