We hope whoever reads this is safe at home, practicing some self care during the Corona Virus pandemic.

Giving back

We recently volunteered at a Meals on Wheels meal preparation event.

We live a quick drive to a place called Tilden Park. There they have a petting zoo - farm, two lakes, a merry go round, and a miniature train that takes you through a redwood forest.

A Family That Exercises Together, Stays Together

As a family, we believe in staying fit and active to ensure a long and healthy life.  We enjoy spending time together by working out at the gym or going on walks with our fuzzy dogs.  We’re hoping in adding a stroller to our outside adventures, and over time, giving the chance to the new member in our family Read more »

It’s the middle of winter right now. Where we live it doesn’t get too cold but the summers are warm. We enjoy going on day trips. Last year we drove to Lake Sonoma and rented a boat.
