I think it was more than 15 families that went on the family camping trip this year with my kids' school. It was great, even better than last year. It's basically a giant playground for the kids to live in and picnic in for a few days and they don't have to go home when it is time for a nap. Watching so many kids play and laugh for a few days straight is rejuvenating.

Part of being on vacation (it was an April break) is going to parks that we don't go to very often. This one is in Campbell and has a water feature and sand.
We decorated eggs for Easter.
Nathan had a birthday. As a surprise to him, Laurie invited Tami and I to ride in a limo with them up to a very nice French restaurant in San Francisco called Fleur de Lys. The food was delicious as were the wine parings. The portions were small but not small enough to stop me from feeling incredibly full after the numerous courses.
Later, the kids did an Easter egg hunt and family came over for dinner. I didn't take pictures but I always like having family and friends over. It feels good to share days with people I care about and to know that my kids are surrounded by good people.
Ha! Anyway, after a couple of emails we worked it out to meet at a nearby park to picnic and play. The kids had a great time, we adults had a nice conversation, and I accomplished yet another of the available parent experiences common to my culture.

The sun has been out. And I have two pair of sunglasses in my car. Recently, Ana asked if she could use one pair and then Enzo asked if he could use the other. They look pretty cool to me.
One day, while Tami worked, me and the kids went to Vasona and Shea and Nicole met us. We made quite an event out of it.
