From Daddy: Not too long after aikido class on Saturday, we packed up the car and drove to Gilroy Gardens, our Happy Place. We parked, he and Mommy did the Garlic Twirl, we rode on Balloon Flight, and then we went to the Water Oasis where he enjoyed some Dippin’ Dots. After that, he frolicked in the water.

Afterward, we checked into our hotel, rested, and then had a long dinner at the Black Bear Diner.
