A few weeks ago, I ventured to Saratoga to join the J family for the day. We had some playtime at the park, cooled off with some ice cream, and ended with a dinner of burgers and fries. For those of you who know me, I'm truly man of simple tastes. And this day was simply perfect.
A year ago, we met Gabriel here on the blog. Back then, he was cute, adorable, and well... stationary. Today, Gabe is just as cute and adorable as he's ever been, but there's one notable difference: he's mobile. I'm not talking about leisurely strolling. He's fast. He runs, jumps, and climbs to his heart's desire. And as for me, the lucky photographer who gets to try and keep up with him? Well, I'm pretty sure I'm ready to be the next American Ninja Warrior.
For those of you who don't already know: Reynaldo (or JR as I call him) is my older brother, and Christine is his lovely bride-to-be. To start of this post, let me tell you a couple of things about them. First, they're Sharks fans -- so thanks to Christine for sacrificing valuable Sharks playoff time to pose for my camera. And second they can endlessly exchange 90's movie quotes -- like endlessly! Which comes useful, when trying to get my brother to have a natural smile (haha). Well this past Sunday, I spent the evening with them at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco.
