Every Saturday my Dad visits me at the Ronald McDonald House. This Saturday we decided to drive along the mountain.
We drove away from Palo Alto to the Windy Hill Open Space Preserve. We saw a great retirement center which I think would be perfect for my Mom. The mountain was nice, but no wifi, so that sucks.
My Mom and I also decided to walk to downtown for dinner tonight. The Ronald McDonald House is about one mile away from Downtown Palo Alto, so it’s bearable. I try to walk at least 10,000 steps (tracked by my Fitbit) everyday for my physical therapy.
We ate at Wahlburgers. Wahlburgers is a restaurant chain owned by Paul Wahlberg and partnered with his two brothers, one of which is the famous actor Mark Wahlberg. Wahlburgers even had a TV show made out of it.
We decided to walk back to the Ronald McDonald house by cutting through the Stanford Mall. If you’re at the Stanford Mall at night, it’s beautiful. The lights are still on and the music still plays, but no one’s there so you can enjoy the moment.
