Nana and Papa’s visit

Posted on by Dad

Back in June (sorry, Dad’s been slacking), Nana and Papa and their friends Sharon and Mark came to visit from Massachusetts, by way of Arizona. They were able to watch Avery in her Gymboree class, visit the new house, and have some lunch in San Francisco. The visit flew by, but we’ll be visiting them […]

After this weekend’s Gymboree class, we took Avery out for some ramen and sushi. She liked everything she tried, but nothing more than the chopsticks.

McNears Beach

We’re fortunate to live about 20 minutes from the nearest beach – McNears Beach in San Rafael. A couple weekends ago, we decided to take a ride and check it out. We thought we’d just go see the beach and maybe sit in the sand for a bit so we brought some beach toys and […]

Lunch with Kelsey and the Aquarium by the Bay

Posted on by Dad

A couple weeks ago, Kelsey – Avery’s original best buddy and her first nanny – came to San Francisco for a visit. We were able to meet her and her boyfriend Joe in the City for a nice lunch so the two old friends could catch up. After lunch, we headed over to the aquarium […]

Tuesday afternoon fun

Posted on by Dad

I decided to take some photos of Avery after work yesterday while she was doing one of her favorite things – climbing up on the coffee table. After taking some photos, Avery was very talkative, so I made a quick movie of her practicing her words…
