We arrived in San Jose on Friday afternoon after successfully completing another flight with Ezra.  We dragged our luggage, car seat, and Ezra to the car rental agency and settled in to a midsized Hyundai.  We drove to our hotel during which time I determined I was driving in 2nd gear, which I quickly rectified.  In the evening we stayed at a Sheraton near downtown San Jose.  After Beth Ann and Ezra turned in, I went for a stroll to the nearby supermarket.

In the morning, we returned to the supermarket to pick up food and some supplies.  Then we packed up the car and headed to the Billy Jones Wildcat Railroad and W.E. “Bill” Mason Carousel park where we rendezvoused with Tom.  While crossing the street to retrieve something from our car, Beth Ann’s glasses (in their case) fell out of her back pocket.  An SUV drove over the case, but when BA retrieved them they were still intact, albeit with a visible crack in one temple.  In the park, we met up with Brandon, Liz, Sam, and Isaac for a picnic lunch.  It was fun to reunite and share parenthood stories.  Tom, Brandon, Ezra, Sam, and I then took a ride around the park on the train (Ezra had not yet entered his “choo-choo” period, otherwise he would have been even more ecstatic).  After the train ride we headed over to the playground for more shenanigans.  Finally, we packed up said our goodbyes.  The Hoshikos headed south to Los Angeles for Brandon’s sister’s wedding while we headed east for Yosemite.
