Well, we had a busy week. We said goodbye to our wonderful old car:
And hello to our new car, a 2007 Toyota Camry Hybrid (we haven't actually taken a picture of it, so this is a stock photo and this picture isn't actually a hybrid, but it's the same color so it's close enough):
We have been looking at cars for several months and hadn't even thought about getting a Camry. But a couple weeks ago we read the reviews of the car and found out that we could get a pretty fantastic deal on it, so we bought one. We are pretty impressed so far and glad we made the switch. We loved our Civic, but it was just too small. We hadn't anticipated toting so many people around and the two-door Civic just wasn't big enough, so we sold the Civic yesterday (and actually got quite a bit for it, thank goodness). But we were very sad to see it go :(
We also were able to enjoy a couple more restaurants this week on outings with people from the firm. On Wednesday we went to Rustic Canyon which was pretty good. It's kind of a farmer's market type of place. I had halibut and Tom had a burger, but the appetizers were probably better than either of our main dishes. Last night we got together with a different group of people and went to K-Zo in Culver City where we consumed a ridiculous amount of delicious sushi. But better than the sushi was the Japanese eggplant dish that had the best teriyaki sauce I've ever had. Yum, we love free food.
Today we went to Bakersfield to visit Tom's parents for a few hours. We wanted to show them the new car, wish Tom's dad happy father's day (since we are going to be out of town next week), and spend some time visiting. We came away with some fresh vegetables from Tom's mother's garden and we are very excited about eating them this week :)
