UCSC and Beach Dates (Santa Cruz Part 3)

The entire four years I attended UCSC it was under construction. The student union was being relocated and expanded, new dorms/new "colleges" were being added, I think a new library, a student health center, and a parking structor were all being worked on in those years as well. Some of the things still weren't completed by the time we graduated so I enjoy taking a drive up through campus whenever we can to see what has been finished. With that said, one of the main streets was turned into a one way street to accommodate the construction before I started in 1998. This year was the first time we were able to drive DOWN that street. It was kind of exciting! The school looks beautiful, and the additions add so much to the campus, but the views are still the best part of The City on the Hill.

(Spencer wasn't really impressed...)

(but Princess Jasmine was!)

After multiple attempts to meet up with our friends Zack and Ingrid, we were finally able to make it happen. Ingrid and I sat with the babies while Zack and Travis took the big kids to the jump over all the waves.

Pretty amazing that one short year ago we were here...

The trip must have been a success because this was our view on our drive home:
Another great trip in the books!
