Lee’s Birthday

Wednesday, February 24th, 2016

I’m a little behind in my posting…but it was fun and delicious.




Congrats, Lee!

One of the many fundraisers at Jonah’s school each year is a contest for t-shirt designs and then a limited print run of shirts with that design for families to order. Lee’s submission was chosen this year.

Below is a rough mock-up that was made for a recent school event.

We are going to donate the original drawing to the school auction later this year. And we have ordered our t-shirts, which we will wear proudly!

That time you were at the East Bay Mini Maker Faire and ran into a friend who said, “can we take Jonah with us when we leave? He can play at our house until the birthday party (a classmate’s) later today.” And you ask your kid if they want that. And they nod vigorously. And then you have this unexpected four hours of freedom on a Sunday afternoon. So you go have late afternoon beers in the sunshine while the baby teethes on the menu and charms everyone around you. The day you were able to have entire uninterrupted conversations with your partner. And laughs. And did I mention afternoon beers in the sunshine. Yea. That day. That awesome day when you wonder what you did to deserve this lot in life —


Thank you cards

Monday, February 3rd, 2014

Lee and I struggled to find thank you cards that felt just right for this moment. We hadn’t asked for or expected showers or much attention this time ’round, but the people in our lives showed-up in a big way regardless. And for that reason we felt we needed something truly reflective of the moment and our tastes. So Lee took matters into his own hands. The result:


This is Lee…

…calling see if he can get a haircut today. Not sure what the rush is.

And one more thing, I’m not sure my volumizing shampoo is quite right for his hair type.  I think maybe I’ll pick up something a little more appropriate for his mane.

First-up: a Breaking Bad inspired breakfast


Next: A sweet birthday crew and a mocha pudding cake.


Happy Birthday, Lee!

We went to Indian Springs in Calistoga for an evening of mineral pool soaking, a great dinner in St. Helena and a morning of sleeping in and more soaking. The highlight was the nighttime dip with a million stars overhead and steam so thick you couldn’t see the other end of the pool.






Lego explanation

Monday, January 21st, 2013

I was getting a rich explanation about the lego arrangement until Lee woke up and emerged from our room. Jonah was pretty amped to see his Dad and wish him a happy birthday.

The patient

Jonah checks-up on Lee after knee surgery. The last snap is of the sweetest get well cards from Shea, Mara and Jonah.  I’m pleased to report that 24 hours after  surgery Lee is hobbling around without crutches and in no pain!  Next knee up: the right knee in January. Sigh.





Ocean Beach

Friday, November 2nd, 2012

Great warm fall beach day with sweet friends who we don’t get to see enough of. Dean taught Lee to skim board. The kiddos dug and splashed. Sand castles were made, a hole big enough to put the kids in was dug (dubbed, “the babysitter” by Dean). And it was all topped-off with live music, burgers, and Bloody Mary’s at The Park Chalet.
