Stuart and I were unable to take a traditional honeymoon after our wedding because when you have four kids, two dogs, a house, and one of you is starting a new job there isn’t much opportunity to get away. So what did we do instead you ask??? We volunteered at two stages and watched the final stage of the Amgen Tour of California. I had never seen a real professional bicycle race before and this year there were a few big names that came out for the 8 day stage race. It was an amazing experience. We got to volunteer at the finish in Santa Barbara where we saw Taylor Phinney win stage 5; we saw them roll out to start stage 6 from Santa Clarita, and then we bought VIP passes to have prime seats (and food and beer) at the finish in Thousand Oaks. We even scored a couple of very cool autographs! Check out the pictures below!
