Meet Ty'Tiana

I recently got matched up with my "Little" through the organization Big Brothers/Big Sisters of the East Bay. I was on the waiting list for over two and a half years due to budget problems. I am so happy to finally have a "Little." She is great too.

I took her to a Family Fun Night at a park in Antioch. We had a blast doing crafts, walking near the water, and running through the huge sprinklers up on a hill (that was my idea). After 6 months, we can start doing activities with friends and family members so we will be "touring" Sacramento sometime soon. She wants me to take her to Hawaii and Africa so if anyone has any spare frequent flyer miles...hand 'em over.

Brentwood CornFest


Andrew and I set out to experience Brentwood's famous CornFest last Saturday night. We got there around 7:45pm so we could get a prime seat for the evening fireworks at 9:45pm, but there was a long line wrapped around two blocks. It was taking people and hour and half wait to get in. So we went home and decided to try again on Sunday.

We got in on Sunday and here are a few pictures of the CornFest. We rode rides, ate corn, shopped at the booths (I am pictured talking with a woman about cruises), and went on a carnival ride. Too bad Andrew didn't capture us eating corn, but they were buttery and salty (not good for the camera). It was fun and we will set out earlier next year to beat the crowds.
