Peter and Grace's Day of Fun 2008

With my future job looming only a week away and no real job to keep me occupied, i begged and pleaded with Peter to take a day off for another installment of Peter and Grace's Day of Fun. And when i say "begged and pleaded", i mean suggested and was quickly appeased. =) Our day began with a little sleeping in, and then a trip to Santa Cruz. First stop - Chaminade for checking out its potential weddingness. Next stop, Zoccoli's for our favorite sandwiches. Then on to the engineering building on UCSC campus to surprise Peter's college boss, Carol. We succeeded and were greeted with lots of hugs in addition to a picture of Peter taped to her wall. Carol loves him. Next stop, the catering department to chat about holding a wedding/reception on campus. Got some info, not a lot, but took some pics while we checked out one of the locations.After an afternoon in the sun and doing some wedding errands, we headed back downtown Santa Cruz to see a go...we missed the movie times. No problem! We can't be bothered on our day of fun, so back home to San Jose and a movie downtown. While all the other schmucks were waiting for work to end, Peter and I bought a package of two pitas, two bags of chips, two sodas, and two cookies, and two movie tickets courtesy of the Pita Pit's "Hot Date Night". Next a funny movie, Step Brothers, and candy. Since Peter and prefer different sugary treats, we each got out own candy. Sour Patch Kids for him, Whoppers for me. And to top it all off, on our walk back home, we passed the local hawaiian bbq/tapioca/slushy/frozen yogurt place and decided to treat ourselves to another treat. It was Peter and Grace's DOF, after all!

I encourage you all to play hooky and have a DOF!
