Mommy's Birthday

Celebrating with family at the Melting Pot downtown.
Toasting with yummy blackberry juice. Did Daddy have too much to drink?!?

Mommy was totally spoiled this year! Her birthday celebration went on and on for days. Mommy's favorite gift was having Shadow sing happy birthday to her.

Napa Valley Babymoon

Visiting wineries in Napa Valley. Our favorite one during this trip was the Castle Winery, built by the Sattui family. All of the materials were imported from Mommy's favorite place - Italy! It took over 15 years to create.

Having tea at the English Rose in Pleasanton.

Visiting mommy's friend Ashley. She just opened a dance studio this year in San Ramon. It was so much fun to see her new studio and talk about dance.

Daddy's Trip to NYC

Daddy went to New York this weekend for a wedding. Mommy was very jealous because NYC is one of my favorite places on earth! Daddy went for our friends Jeff and Susan's wedding. It was a beautiful ceremony and fun reception. Daddy was excited to see our friends from California. It was a lot of fun to hang out with Joel because Joel had never been to NYC before and Daddy showed him around. They went to Penn Station, Rockafeller Center, Ground Zero, Soho, Battery Park, Central Park and more...they walked all over that city! Daddy is sleeping now because he did not sleep for 3 days.
