Month of March

Well the first quarter of the year is done, and i barely get around to updating my personal blog much anymore. Things are happening, but things are getting into such a routine that i don’t find much interesting enough to write about. I’ll try to remember some of the more semi-interesting things that happened this month.


We met up with friends on the weekends to eat as best as we could.

cougarsWith Alice around now, i decided to stop playing in my Whittier Basketball League, and rejoined the Huntington Beach league which plays during the middle of the day instead of at night. It makes it much easier for Joy and Alice to come out with me, and gives us access to some of more the delicious opportunities in Garden Grove that Joy enjoys.

 Lots of Time with Alice

Spring is in the air

Today may be the first day of spring, but i could’ve sworn it was Saturday. In the afternoon we went out to Brea for Quinn’s second birthday party at the Wildcatter Park. It was a hot weekend with the temperature reaching into the 90s. It was a good day for a birthday party, but a bad day for someone who’s got some allergies. I held up pretty well throughout the day, just needing to blow my nose, but by the time we got home i was ready to pass out, and pass out i did.

And of course we took her down the slide.


Jury Duty

Last wednesday i was called in for Jury Duty once again. This was my fourth time being summoned and 3rd time to the Compton Courthouse, and was ready to serve if needed be. I showed up in the morning, went through morning roll call and went for an hour break. When we came back at 10am i was ready to head to a court room and sit through all the proceedings, but when it came time to be sent the clerks said all the courts filled out their jury and none of us were needed for the day. I’m 4 for 4 on not being on a jury.

5 Year Anniversary

I can’t believe its been 5 years since our wedding in Hawaii. This 5th year has definitely been a different one. We started the year in our second trimester of Alice’s pregnancy. We did lots of eating and had a good trip to Portland for our babymoon.


Our actual anniversary day happened to be the day that Joy went back to work after her maternity leave so we decided to leave it until the weekend to celebrate. In addition to that we went for lunch instead of dinner since its easier to deal with the kid.


Fishing with Dynamite is the seafood sister restaurant to M.B. Post. I was excited to try their clam chowder since its the same kind that is made at Hog Island up in San Francisco. It was really good too so its nice to have a place down the street instead of up interstate 5. We also had a half dozen oysters, a peppery Po’ Boy, fries and another Thai sandwich which we’re very happy with.
