Spring Break

Over Spring Break Matt (my bro.) and Sarah and their 3 scrumptious kids (Mackenzie, Macy, and Noah) came to hang out for a couple days. First day we hit the city and got to do some touristy stuff. Here's all the kids on a trolley and then we headed to Pier 39 to check out the sea lions and ride the carousel. Then we stopped in Tiburon and had dinner at Tiburon Grill, which is one of the restaurants in Nate's company.... soooo good!! We had such a good time with them and wished they could've stayed all week!!

Look at Mr. Blue Eyes.... what a babe!

I'm posting this against my better judgement. haha Sarah and I joke that we've yet to take a good picture together.

Even the boys got to go on a "date".

Ewww.... kissing cousins!

Look at those handsome eggs!

Ok, I know I'm a little biased, ok maybe a lot biased. But isn't that the right of a parent?? Here's our shots of the boys Easter morning. Jonah is now 10 1/2 months and Jack is 5 and 3/4. That 3/4 is VERY important around here. We had a great low key Easter. We weren't able to spend it with any family, but we did get together with our friends Heidi and Derek for dinner. The last picture is of Jack and their daughter Addie.

Rocky Seashore!

Last weekend we went on a family field trip with Jack's class to the Rocky Seashore. I kept calling it the beach (because it was) but learned quickly that it had only one name, "The Rocky Seashore". So I gave in, but insisted that it be pronounced with an Australian accent (the Wiggles influence, in case you were wondering). The Rocky Seashore was indeed very cool! And the kids of course knew exactly what everything was called while the parents were like, "That's a what?". In this first picture Jack is standing in front of a wall of mussels.

There were all kinds of starfish all over this beach, oops I mean Rocky Seashore.

If you look really, really, REALLY close, you can see a hermit crab in Jack hand.

These are sea anemones. They look like a bunch of rocks, but are all soft and squishy when you touch them. And when you squeezed them hard enough it would squirt water at you. The kids were lovin' that.

Weekend in Tiburon

Last weekend we were able to escape for a short while and enjoy a beautiful couple of days in Tiburon. For those of you who don't know, Tiburon is a penninsula in the bay north of San Francisco. Nate's company has a hotel there(where we crashed), as well as a yummy restaurant (where we ate a lot)!
Jack was lovin' climbing on all the rocks that line the shore there.
My boys...
Here is Blackie. Apparentely Blackie was a horse in Tiburon back in the 50's & 60's who did nothing but stand in this exact spot and look out on the bay and the Golden Gate bridge all day long. So loved, that now he's remembered by all with this statue.

Hey Firemen, Here I Come!

So on the way back to the hotel a firetruck passed us on it's way back to the fire house, and off took Jack after it. By the time we caught up with Jack at the fire house, he was already invited in for a tour and making himself at home.

He thought it was all very cool.

Paradise Cove

We headed out for this beach and a picnic on the first day. When we got there we realized we couldn't take Lucy because it was a state park and the ranger said we wouldn't be able to come in. Well, from the back seat, Jack rolls down his window and says to the ranger,(exact quote) "Let me tell you something. We have to bring Lucy, my dog, because we're having a picnic and I don't want the seagulls to eat my food!" He let out a good laugh and let us in... but we had to leave Lucy in the car.
Nate was showing Jack how to skip rocks... I don't think he quite got it.
Jonah chillin' on the beach.

Always good for a pose!
