Weekend Adventures! The one where we learn to identify poison oak

With the long holiday weekend we got all our "around the house" stuff done on Friday, so we decided to go on our out of the city adventure on Saturday.  This time we went hiking in the Sunol Regional Wilderness over on the east bay.  The visitor center was really neat and we got to see a bunch of native wildlife like rattlesnakes, tarantulas, king snakes, turtles, toads, and a bull snake that the ranger was holding and we could touch.  The kids just got their allowance that morning and had money burning a hole in their pocket so they each bought a little glow in the dark creature.

Before we went on our hike we had the ranger show us poison oak.  Poor Zac somehow got into some last weekend and he has been miserable all week.  Now we know "leaves of 3, in a T, let them be!"  We did one of the shorter trails with more shade because it was super hot!  The views reminded me of eastern Washington.
On Sunday we went to church and then out to lunch with a bunch of new church friends!  We will be meeting up with most of them for an outing on Saturday too.  The rest of the day was lazy and awesome.  Tomorrow my dishwasher gets installed!!!  Praise the Lord!
