Warmer weather has finally arrived in the bay area so we have been visiting the beaches in Alameda.
Emma is growing so tall! Here she is next to maiki for comparison.
We finally went out on a date for my bithday.
We went to Almond & Oak. I will return for the foccacia.
We took Gene on a grocery tour of Berkeley. Monterey Market was the true winner.
Emma made me breakfast, I made the coffee. Almond butter on our home made bread with fruit is my favorite. Emma gave me 2 cards with frogs and one with a sea monster. She knows me so well.
We went to the final concert in the park in the afternoon. On our walk we ran into our friends. 🙂
Present with a pretty paper flower attached to a barette. Super cute!
A friend brought roses and cupcakes. And we had a bottle of prosecco.
The next day we went on a date in our neighborhood while Emma stayed home. Its a whole new world to be a part of now that we are parents who can go out alone!

I sat by this quince and read “Crying in H Mart” over several afternoons.
