Football season is over and we have had a great season.  We were able to go to the championship game.  We lost in a close game.  Hyrum did very well this last season.  We was able to learn his left guard spot well.  The offensive scheme was challenging.  they expected Hyrum to cut block and and pull occasionally.  He picked it up really quick.  he is undersized for this age group but held his own.  He would be great if he could find a way to get mean.  I don't think he has that in him.  I'm very proud of how well he did this last season.

I took Tiffany to San Fransisco for our Birthdays.  we thought that Emma and eve are old enough to handle the family/house while we were gone.  It was fun.  I want another shot at the city.  I feel like we got the tourist stuff out of the way.  We spent a lot of time on the Piers, we went to Alcatraz and saw the Muir Wood National Park.  It was crowded.  We walked a lot the first two days and felt we would be ok walking many miles each day.  After the first day we were very tired.  I got us lost as we were trying to walk from the hotel to Fisherman's Wharf.  It was a great scenic view but required far more time than we had allotted for.  We took two days to explore the city.  San Fran is supposed to be a great food city.  We were disappointed with the places we ate at in the city.  We had a couple of ideas on where to eat and relied on Yelp to help us out.  It didn't work out as well as we had hoped.  The last day we went back to the airport and got a car and went to see Muir Woods.  It was great to get out of the city into an environment we were more familiar with.  We went north of the bridge and got a few pictures.  when we got to Muir Woods the parking lot was very crowded.  we had to walk over a mile from where we parked to get to the park.  they wanted to park in a park and ride that would have added about 1.5 hours to our trip.  The park was awesome.  Almost required reference.  On the way back to our hotel we stopped in Sausalito to kill some time.  We went to aprk that Tiffany saw and it was a fundraiser for a local music school featuring some Creole music/food.  It sounded cool until we walked in and saw that everyone was drunk and partying it up.  The food trucks were shutting down. The food did not look that good anyways.  we walked down the road a bit and ate at a restraurant with a blue roof.  I had the best seafood dish I have had to date.  this helped me feel better about the food experience we had been having up to that point.  Except for Ghirardelli's.  that place was awesome.  Salted Caramel sundae!!!  It was fun to get away with Tiffany without anything to do.  I want another shot at that city.  I want to plan our food tour a little better.

 October is always a bit of a crazy month for us.  Between birthdays and Tiffany's witching it gets a little crazy.  I think this will be Tiffany's last year working for gardner Village.  All the witches she has started with have moved on.  She is no longer feeling like she is needed.  With hyrum in football and her witching it feels like we don't have much time to celebrate the birthdays.  It will be interesting to see what happens next year.
