On Sunday, SMS and I met up with two of our friends for another hike. I was pretty excited to meet up with A and J since I really want to have couple friends for SMS and I. Maybe that’s cheesy but hey, the heart wants what the heart wants (<– this is the first and last time a Selena Gomez song will be quoted on my blog!).
We had a later than normal start but the weather was perfect so even though it was a mostly sunny trail, the temperature was pretty perfect. We headed over to Fremont and hiked Mission Peak. We parked at Ohlone College and took the Peak Trail to the top. Parts of it were through cow pasture land and we walked past several cows and calfs. Awesome!
It was a beautiful hike and the westward views towards Silicon Valley were a nice change from our normal vantage points in the Santa Cruz mountains and Saratoga wineries. SMS and I hung in pretty well for our second straight day of hiking, although the winner of the day was A who carried a baby on his back the whole way up.

After the hike, we headed back to the house where we quickly showered and headed out to Stein’s brewery. We hung out with A’s second cousin, his wife, A and J. It was a lot of fun and a great way to spend a Sunday.
Now, SMS and I are hanging out at home, trying not to fall asleep too early thanks to a combination of a weekend of hiking and Daylight Savings Time!
