A Day in the East Bay

We had a really nice morning in the East Bay.  We started out with a hike near Walnut Creek with our good friends Rob, Lucy, and Scout (their redhead Vizsla, who Jonah adores).  We have known Rob and Lucy since the first year of law school in Virginia and they live in SF now.  We don't see them enough considering how close we live.

After a great hike, we went to the Berkeley Thai Brunch at the Buddhist Temple.  It is a Berkeley tradition, with plenty of good vegetarian food.

Happy Easter!

This is the first Easter that Jonah actually understood what was going on.  He probably had 5 Easter egg hunts and ate way too much candy (which left him with a tummy ache by the end of the weekend).  Jonathan worked most of the weekend, but he was able to make it to one Easter egg hunt and to church on Sunday.  See below for a pic of the kids in our backyard (with our garden project in the background).

Blooming Palo Alto

The weather here has been beautiful.  This is a picture from Jonathan's office window overlooking a small duck pond.  These trees bring back good memories of the cherry blossoms in DC. . .

Santa Cruz

It was a beautiful day in Santa Cruz with family.  The girls (Jessi, Aunt S, Jackie) took a walk on the beach and Jackie loved crawling in the sand.  The boys (Jonathan, Jonah, Stephen, GP) took a ride at Wilder ranch and got a little lost and a little in over their head.  We finished the day off with some good burritos in downtown Santa Cruz.  If only we could have more Saturdays in Santa Cruz. . .

(Aspen and Devon are going to love it here.)
