While digging through my emails I found this post I wrote back in 2006. Why I never posted I don't know. But I thought it was cute and thought I'd share. So here it is in all its glory. Happy 5th anniversary, honey.
so, for our 5 year anniversary joe and i decided to go camping..well i decided and he agreed. so we booked a spot at clear lake got some food, did some shopping and and were on our way. we arrived at clear lake around dusk. the moment we got out of the car we were attacked by mosquitos. joe went to the bathroom and while he was in there i noticed the thousands of large ants on the ground. as i stood there getting attacked by land and air, i realized how unromantic staying there would be. the more bugs i saw, the more freaked out i became. thank god there weren't any spiders, i may have left joe in the bathroom. joe came out and agreed that there were many bugs, but he assured me that it wouldn't be so bad. we walked around looking for a spot farther from the lake to avoid the mosquito nests. as we walked we realized two things, the lake was everywhere and the mosquitos were relentless. i decided that it was time to leave. i couldn't stand myself or joe being attacked by these things. i felt really bad..like i couldn't hack it or something. joe made sure i was covered and put me in the car. he then drove me and my tears ( for feeling stupid) to a hotel. we made hot dogs in the room (pizza was closed) and had a little carpet picnic. it was much better than camping. the next morning we went to breakfast in calistoga and shopped at a little bookstore. as it started to rain i was really happy that we didn't stay at the camp grounds. we went and saw old faithful then drove partically the whole north bay. we stopped in sebastapool at a little ice cream place. home made ice cream is the best. i got an ice cream cone that looked like a pair of balls and weiner. i swear..we got a picture after i was eating.but you can kinda see it. we found our way to san francisco via petaluma. Going over the golden gate we had to pay toll. neither of us had cash..i offer a credit card and check to no avail. and stayed at the westin which we both fell in love with. friday was spent in san francisco at golden gate park. we rented some bikes and rode around..oh my cookies..riding bikes is hard. when i was a kid, i don't remember it being that hard. we ate had a picnic of pul go gi and salad. we then drove to fisherman's wharf ate more ice cream at ghiradelli square. i love ice cream. we had dinner at cipinnos and went back to the westin. sunday morning we woke up and went to china town. we had lunch at this place i had heard about from $40.00 a day with rachel ray on the food network. it's called the oriental pearl. the food was okay. we then went to the metreon and watched the da vinci code. which as i suspected ron howard ruined. if you haven't read the book, you might like it. But I hated it. Tom Hanks as Robert Langdon?? wtf! after the metreon,
