Oregon Coast

At the end of summer we took a trip to the Oregon Coast for the second family reunion of the year, this time on the Contreras side. The girls were super excited to be able to do two trips with both sets of cousins.

Oregon coast was beautiful and we had an amazing house right on on the beach. The girls had a great time playing with their cousins and it was a wonderful vacation.

New England

We traveled to New England with my Mom, two of my brother’s and their families. The thirteen of us shared a house together in Newtown just a few miles outside of Boston. It was a wonderful holiday, filled with road trip up to Maine, science museums and history, traveling back in time to the 1600’s in Plymouth, and the 1800’s in Sturbridge. Plus Danelle and I caught a game at Fenway Park.

Anniversary Trip: Vancouver

To celebrate our 8-year anniversary, Danelle and I traveled to Vancouver, British Columbia. It is a beautiful city, reminded us a lot of San Francisco, with smaller hills. It is very walkable, we never needed a car. We had some great food, yummy donuts, and all around a good time.

Summer 2017

Wow, what a fun filled summer, a wonderful time with family and friends! Angelica finished Kindergarten, finishing her first year of school with perfect attendance! We celebrated the Fourth of July, birthdays, a mud run, oysters in Pt. Reyes, theater camp, exploring the marine life in the Bay, and that doesn’t event count the major trips to Boston and Oregon, more photos to come.

Barcelona 2016

We had a wonderful visit in Barcelona! I was there for a work meetup and Danelle was able to join me and we extended it to a vacation. We really enjoyed the time together, the wonderful city, sites, food, and just wonderful atmosphere.

We had a wonderful and full Holidays in 2016. Angelica starred in her first live performance with her school’s ensemble performing ahead of the Willy Wonka play, it was a smashing success! We also had family hikes, Thanksgiving, ice skating, cookies with the Cantos, a few different family Christmases, and a wonderful visit to SF to see the decorations.
