San Francisco in April

Thanks to Heather and Jake, we spent a beautiful weekend in San Francisco. It was Jake's 30th Birthday on Saturday and Heather invited us as a surprise to hang out with him. We decided to get a hotel room within walking distance of Fisherman's Wharf. We checked into the hotel room, walked around the Wharf for about an hour, then met up with Heather and Jake in North Beach. We had a yummy dinner at The Stinking Rose and then had a blast at the Jeffery Ross comedy show. This morning we met up for breakfast and then came home. The weather was so beautiful in SF. It's pretty warm here in Santa Rosa.

Chicago April 2-6

I went to Chicago last weekend to visit family and to attend my cousin Liz's Bridal Shower. The trip included some of the usual stops like White Castle, Vito and Nick's ($6.00 Old Style Pitchers, Yes!), and Dunkin Donuts (for the coffee). I had fun playing cards with family and learning some new games. I played Wario:Smooth Moves with the Stones, which was almost too much fun. The shower was a tea party, in which the Bride was showered with many wonderful gifts. The food was yummy. I was so thankful to be able to attend. Greg and I shared goofy websites, including Oh yes, now I have even more websites to waste time on! The weekend ended with a little snow. Nice getting home to Ethan and the dogs, but I sure do love visiting with everyone. Luckily, we will be back in June for the wedding. It is going to be a blast. I can't wait!
