on chocolate and berries

Today was pretty fun as we went on a day trip to Central California.

Our first stop was the Oakdale Chocolate Festival. The entrance fee of $15 per family was a little steep, but we figured we might as well check it out. Yet there was nothing special about the event. From what we could tell, most of the vendors had nothing to do with chocolate. To be honest, I don't think it was worth the $15 fee.

We later headed to Pease Rance in Brentwood to pick cherries and olallieberries. This was really exciting as we hadn't been to a U-pick farm in over a decade. The three of us then had an early dinner at a Mexican restaurant before returning home.

Though the chocolate festival was disappointing, the day trip was overall enjoyable. The nice thing is that we have another one planned for tomorrow. Summer is definitely off to a good start. :-)

summer break is here!

Holy crap, I didn't expect this semester to end so soon. These four months seemed like mere weeks. In any case, this means summer is here. W00t!

The only question is whether I did well on the Stat 134 and IEOR 162 finals. I guess I'll find out soon enough. *fingers crossed*

Update: I must have aced the Stat 134 final because I got an "A-" for the course. Sweet!
