Moving Time!!

Wow! Time has flown by and it is time to leave our first apartment together and move into our new home! We included a few pictures of our old apartment to remember where we started, and then shots of the moving process. Luckily we have had a ton of help. Amanda's family helped with cleaning, painting, and organizing in the days leading up to the move, and great friends the Coppuses and the Muhlesteins loaded us up on the big day. Everybody worked so hard, and we are so grateful for all the support. We love our new place!

Big Fun in the Bay Area

It's amazing how much fun you can pack into a long weekend! Amanda had a business trip to LA, and that provided the perfect excuse to swing up to San Jose and visit good friends. Friday meant a girls' day for Marisa and Amanda--filled with shopping and good food. Not much has changed since college :) That night, Jason joined in the fun with a delicious Italian dinner and a stroll around downtown Palo Alto. Saturday meant a trip to Santa Cruz for a little beach time before we traveled down to Monterey to see our friends the Torosians. We were just in time to celebrate Kat's first birthday! Before the weekend ended, we managed to work in a trip to Fisherman's Wharf to sample lots of clam chowder, and in Paul's (and Amanda's) case, stare at some yummy chocolate! It was a quick trip, but we sure had a great time!
