My excuses? We moved. We settled in. We moved back out and renovated. Then we moved back in. I got a new job, a way harder job. We’ve just been too busy “being” and “doing” to reflect as much as we’d like. The good news, we never stopped taking photos. So we’re going to take a broad sweep, get some photos out there, but never “catch up”.
View photos of us traveling around Colorado! These photos are totally out of order, but include a wonderful family reunion in Montezuma, CO, a few days in Telluride, a trip to Estes National Park, and visits with friends in Denver.
We spent spring break 2015 in and around Mt. Shasta – check out our adventures!
Jessica’s parents and grandma flew in for the week of Malina’s spring break, which also included Easter and Passover! We both had to work but Sandra, GG, Ganda, PaPa and the kids spent the week having fun!! We spent a lot of time eating slow meals together, reading books, coloring, taking walks, going to the playground, swimming … and even checking about Malina’s 2 favorite museums in SF (BADM and CAoS).
We all drove up to Mendocino for the long weekend and stayed at a great house on the bluff overlooking the ocean, which was beautiful!! Soon after our arrival, we learned that Aunt Emily and her boyfriend Rob got engaged! Hooray! We are so happy for them! We had a few celebratory toasts on the deck for the addition to our family. While in Mendocino we took 2 beautiful hikes, checked out the downtown, saw really cool tide pools, and explored the area around our great big rental house! Jessica also learned that turkeys can fly!
It was a great visit!!
We spent a beautiful and sunny February morning north of the Golden Gate Bridge in Tennessee Valley. To our surprise the parking lot was already full at 9am and there were tons of families taking the mile trek down to the beach. The kids enjoyed the walk and all the “nature” we saw along the way. Once down near the water they played in a cold little stream with new found friends. The walk back was later than planned and several meltdowns ensued …
We had another wonderful (albeit short) visit from GG, Ganda and PaPa. While they were here we celebrated Great Grandma Barbara’s 91st birthday, watched Malina’s kung-fu class, went on a hike at Lands End and played at Malina’s preschool!! It is always great to have them visit.
