More Weekend Fun!

June 7, 2016

We made the most of the Memorial Day three day weekend by going up to Manzanita Lake in the Lassen Volcanic National Park. What an awesome spot! We were there with a big group of friends so the kids always had something to do and someone to play with. We paddleboarded, canoed, hiked, and just hung out!

The lake is beautiful and a quick paddle out into the middle of the lake rewards you with spectacular views of Mt. Lassen:

We also hiked to the snow:

Big Weekend Fun!

May 26, 2016

We had the most fun filled weekend over Mother’s Day. We packed up the car and headed to Stinson Beach for a weekend away. It was mainly cloudy and grey, but we made the most of it!

On Saturday we cheered on Sam as he ran the Miwok 100K a 62 plus mile run in Marin County. Sam has been training for this race for months and I think he was pleased with how he did. Way to go Sam!!

That evening we celebrated Oliver’s 10th birthday with friends!

Then we hosted a Mother’s Day brunch for family and friends. I guess I was too busy eating and hanging out to take photos!

We finished it off with a walk to the top of Mt Tam for views of a very foggy Bay Area.

Weekend in San Diego!

March 4, 2016

Several weekends ago we headed down to San Diego to spend a few days with the extended family. San Diego is a wonderful place to visit with kids and we really made the most of our short time there.  We went to the world-renowned San Diego Zoo. There we saw all kinds of animals and Oliver took the lead photographers role. Here are some of our favorites:

Here’s the photographer:
