Weekend Wrap-UP


        This weekend we went to Pasadena and saw the most beautiful tree lined street. The
                                                  picture does not do it justice!!!


                                                      Oinkster in Pasadena, I heart the name.


                                      The most amazing pastrami sandwich...melted in your mouth.


                              I had the pulled pork sandwich and it was better than mine. YUM


                                                Spent lots of time playing with Princesses.


                                                                New chalk is the best!


                                                       I love how she colored her family.


                                                     Enjoyed every last bite of this cannoli.

          We had a very wonderful weekend! Filled with lots of eating, laughing and having
           fun. June Gloom is here and we are excited to see the sun the week. I hope you
           and yours had a great weekend!!

  1. I knew as soon as I saw the trees it was Pasadena. Worked off of the Arroyo in the federal bldg for almost twenty years. Sounds like a fun and yummy weekend and how cute is your mini me daughter.
