Hello! Happy almost weekend :) It is definitely May and I just wanted to jot down some memories from last month before too much more time goes by.
1) Museum Day!
Still don’t like BofA, but still really like the Museums on Us events. During the first weekend in April, we drove to the deYoung. We got there as it opened, and enjoyed a quiet and empty Arts of the Americas exhibit before the museum got crowded. The observation deck was incredible, and we spent quite a bit of time at the deYoungsters exhibit, which was was more fun and involved than I expected for a children’s section.
2) New Orleans
The Aging in America conference was in New Orleans this year, and it was exciting to have an opportunity to visit the city. Tracey and I checked out Cafe du Monde and it TOTALLY lived up to the hype.
The three of us had the shortest, simplest Seder, and it was just right :)
4) Earth Day at FROG Park
We joined in the annual neighborhood FROG Park cleanup day, and Diego loved running around with the broom. So many children gathered together to clean! It was really sweet.
We walked along Lake Merritt and went to brunch in Jack London for Easter. Lucky us, Silvia is an incredible photographer, and took some spring photos of us and Diego :)
6) Saturday night dinner
We got lucky a few weekends and managed to enjoy going out to a (very) early dinner out. Diego grabbed David’s sunglasses at High Peaks Kitchen and officially won dinner.
7) Oakland Zoo!
We were wandering around the Bear exhibit and bumped in to Zac and Isla! I love this picture of the gondola ride down: dads, babies, goldfish and an incredible view.
8) Baby Evie!!
The ABSOLUTE best part of April: Baby Evie entered the world!! Katie is a mother!! We’re going to London in two months and I cannot wait for baby time.
