Memorial Day and More
On Memorial Day we headed up to the city with the Grandpeases for some day baseball (and our first major league game of the year). At $9 a ticket, we couldn't refuse. AT&T Park is unique in that the nosebleeds also come with a beautiful backdrop of the San Francisco Bay. From our third deck seats behind home plate, we could see clear across the bridge to the Oakland seaport and take in the many sailboats drifting by. And to top it off, the Giants won!
From there we headed to the neighborhood of North Beach, hitting a dive bar first and then on to dinner at a little Italian joint. Good company and good food made for a great day but we were all pretty tired on the long train ride home.
On Wednesday, we met up with the McCahills at a little Latin bistro for some mojitos and to give them the key to our apartment. They are nice enough to look in on Santo while we are on vacation. Lisa being a former vet tech and Will being the other half of a household that manages to take good care of five pets, we have absolute faith that our little fur baby will be in good hands.
The highlight of the night had to be when baby Jack somehow managed to miss his diaper completely and covertly spray his dad with a poop bomb. We're still trying to figure out how this happened exactly but, nevertheless, it gave us all a good laugh. Who could be mad at such a happy baby for a thing like that?
Now we're off to San Diego and L.A. for a week of relaxing, eating well, and trying to be worry-free (Pictures and updates to follow of course). Unfortunately we're finally feeling the effects of the recession so this may be the last get away the two of us get for a while and we are going to soak it in!
I used to sit in the cube behind you. Then I didn't. And then we fell in love.
