April: Monterey with the Kagels

His "alien" hands dancing
During our friend's Spring Break, Jason took the day off work and we joined Mary, Dave & Elizabeth in Monterey for a trip to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, and a swim at their hotel!  We had so much fun!  And that aquarium is awesome!

April: Camping with the Silvas

They ran around like little Ewoks in the forest the whole time!

Oliver's wood city

Batman at Mount Madonna

It is SO hard to get a picture of these three boys together!

Wading in the creek at Castle Rock State Park

Waterfalls and rock climbing

Back in April we went to Mount Madonna with our friends Chris, Suzanne, Willis and Thomas and my parents for a camping weekend!  Holy cow the boys had fun running around and chasing each other!  We enjoyed a gorgeous day at Sunset Beach and ate amazing food!  You know you are in good company when camping food is way yummier than what I cook at home!

April: Happy Five Years of Marriage!

Filbert St. Steps

Coit Tower

To celebrate our fifth anniversary, we left little dude with Grandma Greco and headed off to Oakland and San Francisco.  We walked around Jack London Square, ate dinner and saw an amazing show at Yoshi's of the Pacific Mambo Orchestra, stayed at the amazing Hotel Beresford, complete with their old fashioned pub breakfast, wandered the Tin How Temple in Chinatown, visited the Beat Museum and the incredible L'Osteria del Forno in Little Italy, and climbed the crazy beautiful Filbert St and Greenwich St. stairs to Coit Tower.  Word to the wise: do not attempt this in high heels!  And watch out for the parrots on Telegraph Hill!  They poop a lot!
Happy Anniversary Jason!
