The old light house out on the point is very beautiful, but to get there you take about 300 stairs down! (Talk about a thigh burner on the way back up!) However, this light house isn't used anymore. The light that is now used is the one sitting on top of this building.
Whale migration happens from January to April, so we took our binoculars to do some whale watching. The ranger at the light house had seen a couple that morning, but by the time we got there they were long gone.
It was really funny to see people giving Eric a second glance through out the day. They were trying to figure out where those extra feet hanging out of his jacket were coming from.

I just don't understand how it found such random spots to appear. On me, it found it's way to the top of my right ear, one little spot on my right wrist and on the under side of my chin... now figure that one out??? Eric has only found two little spots on his leg. And thankfully, so far Chance is in the clear.
Unfortunately, poison oak flourishes out here in our area! So as long as we continue hiking (let's be honest, we'll never give up hiking) we will continue our battle against the evil poison oak! :)

Once we got into the park, Chance started to fuss a little, he was hungry and getting tired. So we hurried and got his bottle ready but he only drank a couple ounces before he wouldn't take any more. When we got to our seats and sat down he started to cry like crazy. I hadn't even thought about the noise factor being an issue, but he seemed to be really scared of all the bright lights and loud noises.
So I ended up having to take him to a bathroom underneath the scoreboard where it was a little quieter, to get him to calm down. He eventually did, and spent the rest of the time in my arms and covered with blankets. But after a little nap he seemed much happier, and even started looking at the camara.

Another challenge is keeping Chance dry. Since he can't wear a waterproof shell, EJ carried an unbrella. Though once we got to a smaller trail it got a little tricky. But Chance didn't seem to mind. He hung out in that carrier for the full 3 hours without getting mad. He took a couple of naps and talked to us for about 45 minutes straight. I think he's liking this hiking stuff! :)
We have always admired the manzanita trees. The bark looks like plastic and comes in such beautiful hues of red and purple. In the rain the color was even more vibrant!

After church we went out on the front lawn and had our wonderful neighbor, Lauren, snap our family picture. Then, I returned the favor for them. So, we had a nice little photo shoot going on. And I was very pleased with the results!
On the Friday before Easter we had a little Easter Party for a few of the kids from church. There was a little craft to do, then lunch, and then of course the easter egg hunt.
On the first Wednesday of every month, all the museums and the zoo in San Francisco are free! So, we went and checked out the zoo with some friends! It was crazy busy, but we still had a fun time.

The Rollins are moving back to Utah this week for a few months before moving on to MBA school. We are sad to see them go, they are great friends and we will miss them!
