Sotto Mare" and I've blogged about it before. If you enjoy seafood, we can't recommend this place enough. Here we are with our oysters!Since we were full from sampling foods at the Farmer's Market, we had a late lunch. We took the bus from AT&T Park to North Beach. One of our all-time favorite restaurants is there and we had to visit while we were in town. It's called "
Honey Honey Cafe & Crepery" before spending some time shopping around Union Square. There was one thing that I had really wanted to do before heading home. Off we went in search of a food truck! We found Kung Fu Tacos using an app on Jason's iPod. They were near Haight-Ashbury, so after we located them, we found a nearby park to sit and enjoy our meal. Yet another wonderful meal!

It is an annual family tradition- we celebrate Jason's dad's birthday together by releasing balloons and having dinner together at Yoshino's. If you'd like to read about the significance of this day, please click here: Dad's Birthday . We had a wonderful time together... It has been 4 years... Some days, it feels like it was long ago, and other days, it feels like it just happened. We still miss Dad so much... Happy Birthday, Dad!
Grace's third and fourth teeth took forever to come out! It was pretty disturbing to see the teeth hanging on- it looked like she had buck teeth for a while since the teeth seemed to be sticking straight out. One of her teachers at her afterschool program even tried bribing her with candy to get those teeth out. Her new teeth were already coming in but it was like "pulling teeth" to get her to wiggle the loose ones. She freaked out every time Jason asked to see them, for fear that he'd just yank them out. Thankfully, he finally did!
I keep saying that we need to stop becoming friends with people who aren't from this area! J/K, though joking aside, we've had to say a lot of goodbyes over the years! Our very good friends, De and Jed, moved back to Winnipeg a few months ago, and we sure do miss them!
We didn't do any major remodeling to our house this year, but we did make a big purchase recently: a diving board! When we bought the house years ago, we noticed that there was already a U-frame installed. This was the first summer in which both of our kids enjoyed being in the pool. We saw them both jump off our friends' diving boards and decided that it'd be a good addition to our backyard. Since the U-frame was already installed, we had no choice but to get a 12 ft. board. It has been so much fun watching Jason and the kids jump off. The weather is much cooler now, but I look forward to a lot of fun times in the pool next summer!
It was a hard decision, but we decided it was time for Jeremy to start a new daycare this year. We call it "school" just so he can feel like a "big boy." I was extremely nervous about how he'd adjust to this change, and I can confidently say that he LOVES it. He has made friends and really enjoys learning. It is amazing to see and hear the things that he has learned in just a few short months!

We often spend 3-4 weeks in Edmonton every summer. It's pretty much the only time we can really see my family since that's when Jason and I have extended vacation time. It's too hard to find time during the rest of the year. Three weeks gives us enough time to do everything we want to do, meet with friends, relax, and spend time with family without feeling rushed. We'll see what happens next year, since we're planning to take our first road trip to Edmonton next summer!
