Standing on the platform, waiting out a BART delay. My commute, thankfully, is incredibly short, so commute downtime is rare. Anyway, rather than getting grouchy about the delay, going to think about this weekend.
We had a totally open weekend, which ended up being a really nice combination of quiet and full. Silvia generously watched Diego on Friday, and in the evening we all went to OMCA and did a food truck picnic on their lawn.
This is only our second time at the museum, but their Friday events are quickly becoming one of my favorite Oakland activities.
Saturday morning, we realized our fridge was pretty empty, and decided to treat ourselves to breakfast at La Boulangerie. Diego ate that whole croissant!
After breakfast, we walked over to the library for story time. Diego sat through a few songs and stories before he grew antsy, and we left for a neighborhood walk.
After his nap, Janou came over! We went to the park for a bit, before Max and MaryJo came over, too. MaryJo brought over an incredible box of veggies from her farm-including the biggest tomato I’ve ever seen. It was so gorgeous.
The three of them kindly watched Diego for the night, and David and I went out. It was very thoughtful-yesterday was their one year anniversary! David and I had a great time celebrating their anniversary, ha. We went to Pucquio and it was delicious.
Sunday morning, we packed a picnic and drove to Crown Beach in Alameda.
We met up with the Dillons, and it was a beautiful way to start the day. This was my first time at this beach, and it’s a great spot for toddlers. Super shallow water, nice and calm, and eaaaaasy parking.
Last night, we made a big salad with MaryJo’s farm finds. It was delicious! And now, another week begins…
As nice as this weekend was, it was really fun remembering this spectacular weekend last year. Happy anniversary to Janou and Max!!
