My parents came to visit us over Thanksgiving weekend. We went around San Francisco doing the typical touristy stuff.

First stop: Chinatown.

Then Lombard Street…

… and the Golden Gate Bridge.

Actually, we were just at Fisherman’s Wharf, but you could see the bridge from there.

Some people were trapping crabs on the pier when a seal started stealing the bait from the traps. Fortunately, they had already made a decent catch before the seal showed up.

The next day, we visited Berkeley. My dad is alumni, but he hasn’t been back in almost 40 years!


We were very excited to go on our Honeymoon after moving and after our wedding. Tahiti and Moorea Islands were the perfect place for us to relax and have some fun! We stayed in an overwater bungalow. Sunny warm weather and sparkling clear water makes you want to jump right in!

We did many water activities around the island… paddle boating, kayaking, and jet skiing. We saw a ton of sea life while snorkeling!

There were so many stars… and they twinkle at night!

Our Wedding

It was a beautiful day! The day started off with some unexpected rain in the morning, but the sky cleared up just in time for the wedding. After being away from socal for a few months, it was so nice to go back home for a few days to celebrate with friends and family. On this day, I married my high school sweetheart!

We exchanged vows under the old sycamore tree.

The light ocean breeze created a soft rustling among the leaves …

… and we danced the night away under the moonlight.
