MVLA Spring league starts


this was a good under 15 boys game. 

Lots of energy on the field a couple of key calls to let the boys know that they could play safely and then the game got exciting with the pony cake two minutes from the end of regulation on a handball. 

Sean and Bob were good support making it easy for me the center to get the most all the calls correct. 


Dinner at la fiesta in Mountain View


Facebook said it’s been a year since we ate at la fiesta Mexican restaurant in Mountain View.

The food here is great, I had the mole chicken today. CMD had a taco combination.

Drinks and beer are colorful and cheap here here.

Balboa park happy hour at the prado restaurant


After a walk around looking a buildings and street magicians and a easy going Sunday afternoon crowd. Silvia and I stopped for drinks at the prado restaurant bar area. 

Silvia had a corona and I tried the not fruity enough savioung blanc. My second glass of wine was a much better Pinot noir.

This is a fairly fancy restaurant with a great way of serving meat. Tonight it was beef and chicken. 

The desert was tasty. Chocolate fondue.
