Spring Break in San Francisco

April 9, 2009

San Francisco was a culinary adventure for these young palates. Up until this trip we’ve been exposing Dominik and Scarlett to foods regularly from our local farmers market. Their favorites have been: strained blueberries, avocado, sweet potato, cauliflower, carrots, steamed diced apples, Cheerios, Ritz Crackers, green beans with mint, and mashed potatoes with butter. On our trip we really pulled out the stops and let them try: pancakes, french fries, olives, mac n’ cheese, grilled asparagus, roasted potatoes, hummus, pita, tuna salad, split pea soup, mango juice and feta cheese crumbles.

When we checked into our hotel Dominik and Scarlett were really excited to crawl around the room and check out their new environment while we unpacked. They especially enjoyed the slippery bathroom floor which Dom could easily army crawl across.

The twins also got to meet their great -aunt Candace and great-uncle Pete (the reason for our trip) and second cousin Zach. They also got to meet and go out to eat with our friends Mike, Karin, and Lily, and Chaz, Rochelle, and Amanda. Candace and Pete very kindly volunteered to baby-sit one night so we could go see a movie which was awesome for us but more than a little nerve wracking for them since Dom n’ Scarlett wouldn’t go to sleep without yelling and crying for about 45 minutes.  But as the ol’ timers say, it’s good for their lungs. Thanks! (Sorry).

Really the trip was a smash hit. We have so many pictures that there’s too many to upload so check out the slide show on flickr.

Here’s a couple of our favorites if you don’t have time for the full show.






Happy Thanksgiving!

To start off our morning, Scarlett practiced her tongue exercises (clearly, she got her dad’s tongue) in her exersaucer…


…while Dominik stayed warm in his bouncy chair.


Cool Weather. Cool Kids.

The temperature is finally starting to drop here in L.A. (it’s been unseasonably hot up til now) so at last we’re going to be able to let Dominik and Scarlett start wearing all the wonderful hand-knit hats and sweaters friends and family have given us. First up are matching sets for each by Susan Wohl a long time friend of my family.



Today was also our third anniversary! Auntie Kap came down and helped out with the babies while Beth and I snuck out for a matinee and she left us a delicious lasagna too.

6 days and counting.

My dad and his wife Annette came into town from Florida for a brief visit. They helped us with some last minute pre-delivery preparations.

They brought us these amazing hand knit baby sweaters and blankets made by Annette’s mom, Evadne:

We love them!!
