Squeezing time for fun

So we've been extremely busy with school and such, but fortunately we've been able to find a few moments of levity.

Here's Alissa at the Getty Villa (in Malibu). It was a part of a mega all-day date we had at the end of the summer before school started. The Greek and Roman architecture and art was amazing.

A few weeks ago, my folks came to visit for the weekend. We had a great time while they were here. Our first stop was at Solvang, where they got a taste of their daughter-in-law's heritage.

Here's my mom and Alissa having a great time walking around the city.

My parents ate aebleskivers (traditional Danish pancakes); and they had a heck of a time trying to pronounce it. My favorite part was all the cheese.

Here we are at East Beach in Santa Barbara.

Feasting on crabs... mmm, mmm...


My dad (the church elder) boozin' it up with his son... actually, he only had a few tastes, and then gave the rest to me... I love wine... oh yes, did I mention I love cheese.

My classroom where I'm teaching ancient philosophy at UC Santa Barbara. These two students were being disruptive... they get an F.

My mom and me. She's my best friend and my worst enemy wrapped into one. It was great having my parents visit. Now back to the ol' grind...
