I love watching Emma and maiki play together. It is so sweet and full of giggles.
This grove of trees is close to where we live and was the first part of Lake Merritt that I saw when we were hunting for apartments last year. The area around the lake looked better and better the more we explored and I am glad that we made the decision to move here. Happy one year in Oakland! ^_^
We walked to Piedmont Ave. and went to the famous Fenton’s creamery. We got petite cones (which were not so petite) in dutch chocolate and blueberry cheesecake. Afterwards we watched the folks making ice cream and other desserts through the glass. We went in around noon on Sunday and it wasn’t very crowded. It can get very busy though so I knew to go early. Ice cream for lunch!
Fenton’s was established in Oakland in 1894! I love the cute chairs and retro feel. I have wanted to visit for a long time, especially since it was featured in the Pixar movie Up!
