A Fogless Day in SF

This was the most beautiful day I've ever spent in SF. Here, even June is jacket-worthy weather. But, the last day Spencer's visit in November was 80s and sunny!

Yosemite Trip

We went to Yosemite during Spencer's visit. It was fantastic. Sabrina became the trail "superstar" (as the other hikers called her). She hiked an 8-miles to the top of Nevada Falls and back. What a trooper!

Beach, Butterflies & Pumpkins

AZ & Baby E

Cousins & New Bike

SLO & Pinnacles

The mission, the grandparents, the hike (for which we were under prepared--at least we had a flashlight) and the Balconies Cave (so much darker, creepier and vertical than anticipated). The girls loved it!

Family Art Trip to the City

I Heart Blueberry Picking

Boston Pops 4th of July

It was a long, hot day getting set for the fireworks with the Boston Pops, and it was a loud, late night, but the girls were amazing troopers and we had a great time.


We had a great trip to Baltimore for Jon's conference, spent some sweet time with family, enjoyed the waterfront attractions and then took a train up north . . .

His Night Job

Nasa engineer by day, balloon artist by night. Here is Jon at his first gig.

Family Camping

We've been called adventurous, but it takes a certain kind of adventure-lover to take young kids on a camping trip. We didn't exactly rough it (are those air mattresses and a pack 'n play in that tent?) and our amazing friends did most of the meal and gear prep, but I still think it is a more-work-than-play experience. That being said, I think we're going back for more this fall!

Italy Trip 2010 Part VI

We arrived in Venice on the sleeper train at about 5:30am. It is before the cruise ships arrive and the locals awake. It truly earns its name at that hour. "La Serenissima"

Italy Trip 2010 Part V

We did just about all of Rome in a day and a half and our feet were killing us! We loved our roof-access hotel (View of Rome). What a view! Does throwing a coin in the fountain guarantee a speedy return to all cities of Italy or just Rome?
