This last weekend a couple of my buddies and I from work took a trip up to Mammoth to go biking. It was crazy being up there in the Summer with no snow… I didn’t even recognize the place. Overall the trip was super fun. Can’t wait till next time… Here are a few shots from the trip.

Lord of the Flies

So this monster of a Horse Fly attacked one of our QC guys today out in the back common area. Understandably, it totally freaked him out, but honestly the rest of us couldn’t stop laughing. He just kept yelling, “Get this moth bee off of me!” Then it bit him and he ran screaming back into the office. But you can’t blame him, the thing was roughly the size of a fifty cent piece… After all the commotion cooled off I found it hanging out on railing of the deck and was able to get this photo.

Ok yeah, so I’m going to try not to turn into one of those people that posts hundreds of photos of their pets but… I don’t think I can resist right now. Here are some more shots of Toki from our first weekend.

It's a Hard Life

It’s hard work exploring new places and trying to make new friends with kitties.
