Day Four

Another sunny day in San Jose! The highlight of the morning was a visit to the Indian market where I purchased spices, a large box of soan papdi (my new addiction), and some wonderful steel dishes including a lovely little masala dhabba, which consists fo a number of steel spice dishes enclosed in a larger canister , allowing easier access to often-used spices.
We spent the afternoon in a park while kids ran wild and I fell in love with a small dog. I'm a sworn cat person so this was quite out of character for me.

There was a flock of wild parrots making quite a racket in the trees.

The Princess is getting good use out of her new sunglasses.

Best of all: after a number of persuasive phone calls, The Spouse will be boarding a plane later in the week and flying south to join us for the drive back home.

Excellent! I'm so glad the whole family gets a chance at vacation together! And for the help driving home.

We missed you guys on our hike today (hey, it was sunny here, too! For several hours!). Glad you're having a great time, and that things worked out for the spouse to join you down there.

What a fine blog this is. I especially VERY MUCH agree with your musical tastes on your profile. I just got the latest Manu Chao CD from the library and listened to it yesterday. Ahhhh...he never disappoints. And that's an understatement.
I'm just browsing about here but I quite like it.

Blue sky... so jealous...

I'm glad to hear you'll have some whole-family recreation time! Enjoy the sun and the drive home.

It looks like you are having a wonderful time!

And having your dh there to drive home is such a boon.
