SLO

And now for the last part of the PRP Summer Vacation Extravaganza. On the way to my parents from Jessica's house we made an unscheduled stop in San Luis Obispo. I love the little downtown area and PR Dad had never been so as we traveled down the 101 we made a little stop to wander around and of course to walk through the infamous Bubble Gum Alley. It ended up being one of my favorite parts of the trip! After over a week with family and friends it was kind of nice to just be the 3 of us again. I took the camera along and ended up getting some really great shots.



Since it was a late Sunday afternoon many of the shops were closed and we all did a bit of window shopping.

PR Dad was mesmerized by Bubble Gum Alley. It's kind of a cool/disgusting place all at the same time. PR Dad left his mark by sticking a dime to the wall.

In a very rare turn of events, PR Dad took the camera and now you get a even more rare PR Mom sighting.

There was a cute bear native American fountain that The Phi liked. Later my Mom told us that they use this fountain in a local commercial!



All Matrix Style



I was hoping to get some great pictures of the mission, but of course they were doing reconstruction.

Even more proof that PR Dad is going straight to hell. Do not pass go, do not collect $200


Empty Pews



While on this stop The Phi informed us that she wanted to be called "Sunblock Ocho". So for the day it was her new name. This picture captured the essence of the now infamous Sunblock Ocho.

Mission Flower


Before we left Sunblock Ocho had the great idea of stopping for frozen yogurt. We found this cute place called Yogurt Creations. You pay by the ounce and it was very yummy! We finally learned that Sunblock Ocho doesn't eat crap so the sample size was plenty for her.

Just a funny pic of Sunblock Ocho!
