Ryder's 1st Birthday

We had Ryder's Birthday party on Saturday. We had no idea it was at the beach so expectantly Jocelyn saw the beach for the first time! Thankfully Summer had baby suntan lotion as well! Jocelyn had a blow out right when we got there so it was the perfect opportunity to change her clothes and then spray her down with suntan lotion! Thankfully she had a hate and sunglasses in the diaper bag! They also had a tent which we kept her under most of the time! We had a great time though and got to catch up with a ton of friends! The birthday boy, Ryder, Summer, Jocelyn and I, Dylan and Dana! Madalyn and Jocelyn!First time in ocean water!!

Mac and Cheese in Sonoma

Tasty Mac and Cheese
Kari and I had this dish at The Fig Cafe and Wine Bar in Glen Ellen, California - Sonoma Wine Country.  The thing I remember most about this Mac and Cheese is the bread crumbs on top: it was as if they grated crack cocaine on top of the dish!  In addition, the addition of the green herbs (don't remember what kind it was!) was a nice visual touch!

The first time Kari and I had this was on our honeymoon in the summer of 2008 and we shared the dish.  The next year, summer of 2009, we went back and each got our own and had no need to share!  In fact, I think we just had the Mac and Cheese as if it were our appetizer and then had a full dinner elsewhere...
