We headed up to the East Bay on Saturday to hang out with John's brother, "Uncle Matt." We enjoyed ice skating at Oakland Ice Center, which is a nice big rink. Alex really enjoyed skating with John and Matt since he could hold both their hands and jump while skating. Crazy kid! I am still practicing after taking about a ten year break from ice skating. I will have plenty of opportunities to practice since there is an ice rink near us in Cupertino.
After that, we drove around Downtown Oakland and stopped at Lake Merritt at sunset. It is a beautiful area of the city.
Alex does not stand still for long!
Then we headed to dinner in Berkeley at one of our favorite restaurants, Indus Village. John and I both love the Indus Combo, which includes Chicken Tikka Masala and spinach.
It is about an hour drive, but I am glad we have opportunities to explore the East Bay.
