Joe and I rolled into the Bay Area on Thursday afternoon, and have been thoroughly enjoying ourselves in Oakland ever since. It's always a treat to come here- it is a fantastic place, afterall. It is also my husband's hometown and we are here solely to spend time with his family. It is embarrassing to admit, but Joe's brother and wife had their second child 6 1/2 months ago, and we have waited this long to meet the new addition. Their first daughter, Jazzlyn, is the smartest, most perceptive, funniest, prettiest, and most fabulous 8 year old girl on the planet. She is also one heck of a dancer, as I discovered last night while Joe was (feebly) attempting to sing "I Will Survive" karaoke-style.
Her new little sister is the cutest little muffin on the face of the planet and is already demonstrating her own musical abilities.
I have already shot over 100 images of the girls....but who could resist these faces???
We are off to Reno tomorrow, (bring on the blackjack, baby!!) and we eagerly await our next adventure.
Thank you, Barboza family, for hanging with us, and thank you, Don, for treating us to the BEST Philipino food ever....nobody makes pancit, sinigang, and ginata na manok like you!
