Nat's First Trip to San Diego

On the tail end of our SoCal trip we stayed in San Diego to see my parents and some old friends. A few of us got together at Vinh & Liz's awesome new home to catch up and Nat made a new friend. Meet Isabella - Vinh & Liz's 2-year-old who so kindly shared her toys with Nat.

Some SoCal Rest & Relaxation

In the midst of a plethora of projects at work I certainly don't take time off for granted these days. Last week we headed down to Southern California to celebrate Martin & Yi's wedding in Pasadena and used the road trip for some R&R. I must say - the Yelp App on the iPhone really comes in handy when roaming the neighborhoods for good eats. We dedicated our free day between the rehearsal and the wedding day to shopping and snacking. We found a taqueria that sold fabulous $1.50 fish tacos, a politically-minded ice cream shop, and good ramen in posh West LA.

The wedding itself was awesome and my first time taking part in very traditional Chinese wedding customs. The day was filled with laughter, tears, and lots of love. Martin & Yi - congrats again and thanks for allowing us to celebrate your day with you!

Coutant Family Portrait Session

Meet the Coutant Family - Michelle, Evelyn, Rachel, and Brian. I work with Michelle in the Radiology Department at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital and was privileged to be asked to do a portait session with her beautiful children at Ardenwood Farms in Fremont, CA. They sure are a tall bunch! I could not have asked for more perfect weather on a Saturday afternoon.

Afternoon with the Hu Family

Calvin, Monica, & Brian were in the Bay Area visiting family and we got the chance to have lunch in Berkeley's Gourmet Ghetto - a couple pies at the Cheeseboard Collective and some good coffee at the original Peet's.

Here are some shots from our outing -
