Since my wife and I got married we've been on a few trips.

The first one was a small downpayment on a real honeymoon trip to Greater Los Angeles, California. Disneyland in Anaheim was one stopping point. Hollywood was another. Duke's in Malibu was another still. We spent time with aunts and cousins. We had a pretty good time. That was in August, 2004.

The second trip was to Las Cruces, New Mexico. We met with old friends of mine and spent time there. We enjoyed it, but my wife was uberpregnant at that point so she got sick and didn't enjoy it nearly as much as she would have. That was in November, 2005.

The third trip was to Las Vegas, Nevada. We visited a very good friend of mine and then Lyuda checked out the strip. it's more her style than mine while I babysat. That was in May, 2005.

Our fourth trip was to Monterey, California. We went to the Monterey Aquarium and shopped and had a very nice lunch. This was for my wife's birthday. This was in July, 2005.

The fifth trip was to Crater Lake, Oregon. It was for our first anniversary. We had a pretty good time. We had a horrible night in a good bed and breakfast outside Klamath Falls, OR. We were invaded by a bazillion midges and mosquitos that kept bothering us. It was our fault for turning on the light right next to the window...doh. That was in August, 2005.

The next trip is something we'd like to do over Christmas break: the Lab shuts down between Xmas and New Year's. Either a visit to where I was born and lived the first 10 years of my life (Santa Barbara, California) or a visit to some family for Christmas proper. We're not sure yet, but it'll be soon.

Next after that is something we've already got planne dand the plane tickets paid for. We're flying to northern New Mexico. We're going to go play in the snow. Lyuda loves skiing and we're going to see if Parajito, Santa Fe, or Taos will have snow. If there's not enough snow for skiing we'll see go exploring. I love hiking and there's lots to do there. Just have to make sure that the kidlet stays warm. We'll be flying into Albuquerque, NM first. Then staying there for the first day and then on to Los Alamos (where I spent the next eight years of my life after the Santa Barbara, CA area) and Abiquiu. We'll then hit up Santa Fe and end up in Taos before scurrying back to ABQ for our flight back home. This takes place in January, 2006.
