Almost forgot...Sunday in Pacifica

We had a super visit with our friends Jen, Cher and Mattie. We all enjoyed a walk along the Pacific ocean. Jenn is the human, Cher (black) and Mattie (white).
The pups are sooooooo cute we love spending time with all the girls. Where's the black one?

Busy week, Busy Weekend

Work and life had me very buzy last week. Peter and I went to the Drowsy Chaparone, really fun silly musical/play. Thursday I went to metalwork class and learned some new techniques to hammer and embellish silver. I learned to rivit and great tricks to get a design hammered into silver sheet. Check out my website of new stuff.

Friday, we spent the evening with our friend Angela , Sergio, Vicki and Sophia in San Mateo. A yummy dinner at the local mexician resturant Celia's...margarita's are a great way to end a week and start a weekend. I forgot my camera...:-(
Saturday Night was GNO (girls night out). Theresa and I took our great friend Sylvia out. we missed her bridal shower. It was more fun to have her all to ourselves. We started out with drinks at our friends Vicki's house. Check out all the smiles and laughs

The Bride and Theresa and I headed off for Dinner at Picco. It was amazing, heirloom tomatoes, risotto made to order and sweet little mikeshake and hot out of the oven chocolate madelines. We gossiped, laughed and had a great time. Ask Sylvia, if she liked her silky black teddy!!!

Where in the world is Karen Kadowaki??

We found Karen safe and sound, tucked away in the quant town of Pacific Grove. Karen descibes it as Mayberry RFD...cuz it bigger then just Andy.

We spent Saturday wondering Monterey, Pacific Grove and was beautiful and sunny. Karen took us to a local spot for lunch and we had possible the best grilled cheese ever.

Karen's little house is super cute and she has a little backyard and a fire pit.

We also visited the grounds of the Quail Lodge where Karen is currently working. Karen has become quite the small town girl and woodsy too!!

We sure had fun reconnecting with a great friend Karen...we calculated...we have been friends for almost 20 years!!! We can't wait til karen comes to visit us inf's only a hop skip and jump away!

A Weekend with the Bauer's

Our friends Jackie (mother), Thomas and Margaret came and visited us in San Francisco. Boy, we have had a busy weekend. Friday we went to the new playground in Golden Gate Park. It was fun for the kids to run and play....our apartment becomes small very quickly. Thomas was super brave and went down the cement slide down on cardboard. To the naked eye it may seen quite're right it is. Tom was determined.

Saturday we checked out all the beautiful fruita and veggies at the farmer's market. We had a special treat by having lunch at Slanted Door. Thomas and Margaret are quite the fine diners, we all had our fill of delicious vietnamese food.

We took a big walk down to the wharf to see the sea lions. We also got to ride the merry-go-round and, of course, have a afternoon ice cream treat.

Sunday the group went to the modern musuem of art. We went to the Frida Kahlo exhibit. Then did alittle shopping in union square.

We loved having the Bauer visit was super fun.....yeah!!!
