Family and Friends

Today we got up early and crossed the Bay Bridge to go to La Fayette to visit Sarai’s Aunt Margaret.  The last time we visited her was on a road trip in 2005 before we had children.

After that we headed to the La Fayette Community Garden which Margaret helped found and now takes diligent care of.  Catalina cried after we told her it was time to leave the chickens alone so we could go eat lunch.

Lunch was enjoyed at Pizza Antica.  We ate here 10 years ago on our visit and were so delighted to get to eat here again, their pasta dishes and wood-fired pizzas are absolutely amazing.

On the car ride home the kids took a short nap and we got to cross back over the bay bridge.

In the evening we met Sarai’s old college roommate at Burma Superstar for dinner.  We got there at 5 when it opened to get a table, the place was soon packed with a line out the door.
