If you follow my Twitter feed at all, you know that I recently took a couple of days off from work to spend with Kevin on his Spring Break. Â Kevin’s idea of a great week off is sitting around in his pajamas 24/7 Â playing Grand Theft Auto and drinking. Â While I see absolutely nothing wrong with this – in fact, I completely condone and encourage the drinking part- it’s just not how I like to spend my time off.
So I had some research to do… Â I knew I definitely wanted to get outside a bit and enjoy the Spring weather (even though the days I took off weren’t the Springiest days we’ve had recently), so I thought maybe a hike of some sort would be a good idea. Â After some careful consideration Thursday morning, I decided that we would check out East Rock Park , because somehow the whole time that we lived in Hamden (which is less than a 10 minute drive from the park), we never managed to get there.
The weather wasn’t exactly perfect – a little bit cool and cloudy (and a couple of drops of rain here and there), but it was still great to get outside. Â Kevin doesn’t exactly do heat well anyway, so it was probably for the best.
Here are a few pictures I took with my iPhone (more can be seen in my “Recent Photos” section):
All in all, it was a very pleasant afternoon which we followed up with a late lunch/early dinner at Delaney’s Tap Room. Â Good times… and I didn’t even have to spend my day in my pajamas watching Kev play GTA 4
