PB in SF

Jack was in California last week for work and we talked him into staying the weekend with us. Here are just a few pics from his visit...

We went up to Twin Peaks for some of the finest views of the city

49ers game

Kate and I went to the 49ers-Rams game last Sunday at Candlestick Park.

For reference, just in case...

It's game time

Touchdown Niners

In the end, the 49ers won big, 35-16 and the weather couldn't have been better. Good times.

Wine Country Weekend

Sorry, we've been quite delinquent in posting lately...hopefully this one makes up for the brief hiatus.

Just had to share some pics from Halloween weekend. We rented a house up in Sonoma with several friends and had such a great time...it's always nice to escape the city and the house was really lovely, situated in the middle of vineyards a few miles from Healdsburg.

Friday night we all pitched in to make dinner...

...which consisted of massive amounts of spaghetti, among other things.

I think my peanut butter chocolate chip cookies were a hit...

...but not nearly as impressive as the gorgeous and delicious cake Nikki made to celebrate Jen's birthday.

Below are a few highlights from some of the wineries we visited on Saturday.

Saturday night, in addition to another group dinner and more fun in the hot tub and pool, several photographer friends set up a goofy photo set in a corner, complete with a trunk of props...including the lovely kimono pictured below.

The evening culminated in an exciting event--a proposal! Congratulations, Darcy and Brian! Here is the happy couple, post-proposal...

Altogether a lovely weekend...a few pics of the house and surroundings before heading home on Sunday.
