Thanksgiving Week in the Bay Area

I always love going back up to the Bay Area. The Vietnamese food up there is so much better than what I can get down here, there are trees with fall colors on them, rolling hills all around, but most of all that is where my family and closest friends are.

I didn't whip out my camera too much, but did bring it on a trip to Napa with my family and to my best friend Linda's baby shower. Here are just a few of my fav's from the bunch.

My sister, Michelle, trying to munch on some rock mushrooms outside of Domaine Chandon.

The champagne bottles. Oh, they were sooooo gooooood!!! I'm a bigger fan of champagne now than I ever was before.

Michelle makes such a great model. This is at V. Sattui.

The Culinary Institute in Napa. Looks very academic.

Linda & Allen's Baby Shower.

Our friend Thien made tea sandwiches that were just yummy. And for anyone interested in comics and art, check out Thien & his wife, Lark's sites: http://www.larkpien.com/

This future heartbreaker is Linda's nephew, Noah. Really, he is just too cute!

No shower would be complete without Name that Poop!

Normally, we just look & sniff, but Allen's a very competitive guy and will do whatever it takes to win.

Here's Thien, rushing to the doctor before his water breaks.

I have never seen so many grown men drinking out of baby bottles. And they were all such good sports. =)

Everyone's favorite, pass the bottle -neck to neck.

The guys especially loved this game. Wonder why. ;) That's Linda, btw. She's due in another 2 weeks and I can't wait to meet the little guy!
