Chocolatespoon: Emily’s Musings

Weekend Highlights

Posted on: September 25, 2007

Here are a few photos from the weekend. It was so wonderful to have Katy, Maria and Meag all come visit! Katy and Meag arrived in time for lunch on Friday and we hung out in Los Gatos (discovering an amazing new candy store where we stocked up on supplies for the weekend and a fun trip to Baby Gap for some adorable little things). We went out to dinner at our favorite Thai place, and Maria came in later Friday night. Saturday was cold and rainy, so we mostly stayed in (after a quick trip to the farmer’s market for golden raspberries and to the library for click-flick DVDs), read, watched movies, and hung out. We took the group to Super T for burritos for a late lunch and to Target for some more baby shopping. Sunday was bright and sunny so we decided to go see some redwood trees (Katy’s request when planning this visit). So we headed towards the Roaring Camp Railways (getting a flat tire on the way, but luckily my wonderful husband was driving and calmly swapped it out for the spare). We had lunch at Roaring Camp and then took the one-hour train ride through the redwoods. We stopped in Santa Cruz on the way back to get a new tire and met up with Margaret and Alan for a very satisfying trip to Bookshop Santa Cruz and super yummy hot chocolates at the Chocolate cafe next door. On the way home we stopped at Garlic World (for Meag) and the Jelly Belly outlet store at the Gilroy Outlets. Then we headed to Los Altos for a fantastic dinner at Zitune (thank you to Dad and Jane for the gift certificate to the restaurant!), meeting up with Maria’s friend Christine and Katy&Meag’s cousin Chip/Jerry. Maria headed off to SF for a few days with Christine and Katy and Meag flew back Monday afternoon.

It was a fantastic weekend and I hated to see them all go!!!!
