A Very Weeznuts Year
December 22, 2010 § Leave a comment
Well, it has been quite a year. We started 2010 with a bang by throwing a New Year’s Eve/house cooling party. It was waayy too much fun.
Then we got down to the business of getting our Palo Alto house on the market.
It sold in 10 days, and after selling off most of our belongings and storing the rest, we moved into a furnished loft in San Francisco to try out the city life.
Amanda graduated from UC Santa Cruz in June with a bachelor’s degree in Sociology and a minor in Politics. We are so proud, and we had a big party at the beach to celebrate.
Camille fled the nest in August to attend an international college in Herzliya, Israel, where she is studying business. We miss her a lot.
Amanda moved back home after college, took her LSATs, and is now working part-time at Lululemon Athletica in Union Square and applying for law schools to attend next fall.
She and Craig took up indoor rock climbing.
Our new home is just a few blocks from AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants. It was a good year to become a Giants fan!
We had so much fun watching our new hometown team make it all the way to a World Series win, and being a part of a city gone mad with Giants fever. GO GIANTS!
Linda and Amanda participated in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, which was along the beautiful Embarcadero on the San Francisco Bay.
Craig and Linda celebrated 25 years of marriage with a trip to Barcelona, Spain in October. It’s a gorgeous city.
Craig also took a few kiteboarding trips to Baja and Peru with his buddies.
Kiteboarding is sort of a mashup of surfing and wakeboarding. What makes kiteboarding unique is that you are powered by a very large kite.
That big kite is what makes most kiteboarders fanatics. You see, kiteboarding is not so much about the surfing…
…as it is about the flying.
We had our annual Halloween cookie baking party.
Linda went to visit Camille and her new roommates in Israel for Thanksgiving and Chanukah. Camille’s roommates are (from left to right) from L.A., Buenos Aires, Milan, and Rome.
It was an amazing trip, and included some sightseeing in Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus, and Jericho, the oldest city in the world.
Henry lost most of his hearing this year, at the ripe old age of 12, but he still thinks he’s a puppy.
Oh, and Linda took a blogging class at Stanford and started a blog!
All in all, it’s been a very merry Weeznuts year!
