Weekend with the Girls

Successful Shopping Day!

I had a fantabulous weekend with the girls.

Toby & Max with their AuntiesChristina flew up on Friday night, Diane came in on BART, and the boys got to hang out with their Aunties. We reserved this weekend particularly for "the girls" to spend some time together alone before Christina goes and gets herself married in a couple of weekends. On Saturday, we got up early and headed out to Berkeley where we filled up on donuts and coffee. And then...went for a mad dash of shopping. We came up with a gameplan and followed through amazingly on it. Never have I seen such team work in such a tiny space. We grabbed anything that looked cute in all the appropriate sizes, traded off holding the coffee, held spots in line, and took turns holding bags. Go family!

Hot Dogs in BerkeleyAfter hanging around Berkeley and grabbing some Top Dog, we went back home for some more shopping at the mall. Exhausted, we headed home for "show and tell". Bertrand and the boys sat and watched us model all of our new purchases and cheered along with us for our good deals.

We then cleaned ourselves up, packed up, and hopped on BART for a night in the city. A couple other girls joined us later for Tapas, Sangria, dessert...and some more fun.

What a great weekend. Can't wait till another one of my cousins joins me in the "married" crowd.
