We have been traveling a bunch this year and we have more to come so I thought I would start sharing my journals here. This is the first, a recent long weekend trip to Petaluma. I broke it into days to make it more accessible. Enjoy!
We arrived at our little yellow rental house at in the late afternoon. The small yard in the front and back was entirely fenced in, one of the reasons we picked this location. It allowed Luke to play in the yard while we unpacked and later while we relaxed.
Once we were settled in the house Luke read some books the owners had left on the shelf of the kids room (his favorite was the Star Wars "I am A Pilot" Golden Book. Julie did some work and we researched the best local spots to go.
We had a truly amazing dinner of celery soup, spinach salad (with prosciutto shaved Parmesan, blue cheese and pear), and artisanal pizza ( pine nuts, olive oil, butter nut squash and pancetta) at a place called the Wild Goat.
After we got home, Julie made us hot chocolate. We went out back and stargazed with our cocoauntil it was Luke's bed time. Julie and I read comic books and sketched in the living room.
