Labor Day Weekend

Seems like I only post once per week now.  The kids are older and easier to manage and I have more free time than I've had in over 5 years but I can still barely keep up this blog.  How is that possible?

Anyway....

Three day weekends are hard to come by so we really felt like we needed to make the most of it and get away.   We spent Saturday in Palo Alto and wandered around Stanford University with some old friends.  This is Zsa-Zsa (what Gwen and Maddy call her).  The Daddies grew up together and have been friends since 2nd grade.  She's six months old now and so incredibly cute!  I love how she has little fat rolls in the middle of her forearm!   She's such a sweet, happy girl!  And beautiful too!  Her Mama is Chinese and her Daddy is Hungarian - two ethnicities that are very near and dear to me!

Sunday morning, we went to Stanford Shopping Center and I snapped a couple of pics of some of their beautiful landscaping.  The most amazing flowers were blooming in flowerbeds everywhere!

I'm still trying to figure out depth-of-field (aperture).  I like how the tip of the leaf on the far right (in the photo above) is in focus but the base isn't.

It was such a perfect day!

After the shopping center, we headed into San Francisco where we picked up Michael and Kelsey before heading to our hotel. 

Jenga, anyone?

I took photos of every single moment of the game but still managed to miss the exact moment when the tower fell.  Dang it! 

Pizza and ice cream for dinner and then back to the hotel for more snacks and movies and silly fun times.   I bought some footsy pj's for the girls and they were so cute (sorry, forgot to take pics).  They were all giggles for the longest time before finally falling asleep on the sofa bed in the other half of our room.   After that, I was able to pull out my computer and log in and get Joannah's fantastic news.   Then off to happy dreamland!

The next day, we walked all over China Town and Union Square before packing up and heading home.  It was the perfect weekend!
