Golden Gate Park et al

Karen sent Lynn and Jamie on a little getaway to San Francisco. And despite the threatening weather the entire trip, we managed to cram in just about as much as was humanly possible, including some outdoor adventures. On the way north we discovered yet another restaurant in Paso Robles, Estrella: fantastic Latin American cuisine.

We stayed at the
Warwick Regis Hotel on Geary. Neat little place, like stepping back into another era. And their restaurant, La Scene Cafe was the perfect little spot for a before-the-theatre meal.

Here are the other spots we hit, most of them pictured at this link. There are many photos on this page, so be patient:

Easter Eggs a Day Early

Sometimes it works out best to call the Easter Bunny in a day early. Like this year! The kitchen situation made a big ol' fancy gig out of the question, but the sloppy joes, deviled eggs, and strawberry pie did the trick? Not to mention all the chocolate...


Easter Preparations

A little outing with a couple of the kids is always a treat, especially when Easter goodies are at stake. How about that "People of Walmart" photo?!

Kids and Kittens

It's a daily ritual now. The kids have to have some play time with the kittens at least once a day. And a kitten-friendly litter pan has been introduced, not to mention their expanded play area. Oh, by the way, kittens can crawl way back into wine bottle slots; Tracy looked like she was noodling trying to get them out!
