I drove with Michael to base today and kept the van. I was able to go to the fitness center and get a work out in....which was nice.
The kids and I decided to take advantage of having wheels and go explore our area. We didn't find a thing we set out to find. We did discover the Yuba City Airport, a big amphitheater, lots of corn and cows. We found THESE on our doorstep when we came home for lunch. Thanks, Valerie. We're sorry we missed you and the girls.
Our big goal for the day was to go back to base and get our laundry done before we picked up Michael. It was hot and run down...but functional. We have clean clothes.
We saw our first coyote as we left the housing area. Unfortunately, a truck hit it just as we saw it.
I said earlier today on Facebook I really needed a date night but didn't think it would happen until after our trip. When we got home Michael asked where I'd like to go. We put pizzas in for the kids and headed for Chipotle. YUM - vegan bowl....very good.
There was a little store next door which sells and repairs phones. We went in and discussed phone options....we really don't want a two year contract....burned too often on those with our lifestyle. You don't WANT to know how much it cost us in Japan to leave at the "wrong time". LOL Still researching.
We stopped at Sam's club and decided we'll go back tomorrow night and pick up some furniture. I want a futon before Bre gets here. She needs a mattress and we plan on getting one anyway.
We hit Lowes and came home.....This cracked us up....doesn't show up well - but our 15 pass parked next to a really tall truck. Michael said, "We aren't in Japan any longer are we?" He suggested you could drive many Japanese cars under the truck. ::snort::
