Shake, Rattle and Roll

We spent Easter Sunday outdoors and enjoyed a great BBQ with our large, extended family including grandparents, parents, uncles, aunts and a slew of cousins and friends. Earlier in the day, we planted a small vegetable garden in our backyard. It had rained recently and we thought it would be a fun way to celebrate Easter together before heading out to the family gathering. We planted tomatoes, basil, bell peppers and jalapeno chiles. We also planted some new colorful flowers in the front yard.

While at the BBQ, we felt the earthquake that struck Baja California (7.2 magnitude). Although a few hundred miles away, it was the largest earthquake we've felt in Southern California in a long time. It must be part of the deal we have in Southern California: In exchange for abundant sunshine, cool ocean breezes and summer weather year round, we have the occasional earthquake. Totally worth it!
