Mom & Dad's visit

We have had a crazy busy last couple of weeks with mom and dad's visit. It was an awesome break and we enjoyed everybit.
Going back a few weeks, here we were in North Carolina for Nathan's brother's wedding, Silas. It was a beautiful day and on the waterfront.

The picture is from our birthdays. One of our house mates birthday was also oct 8th, so we all three had a get together to celebrate all three.

We were lucky enough for Mom and Dad to be able to stay with us for a whole week. We went everywhere! It was such a great time together. Here we went down to Monterey Beach in south bay and stayed overnight in this cute bed and breakfast hotel in downtown.

While we were in Monterey we drove the 17 mile drive down to Pebble Beach Golf Links and to Carmel. It was amazing! I am definately playing that course before I die. But for now I just bought a sweatshirt! :)

Shot of me gazing at the links. Dreaming...

While we were in Monterey we rented this cool car-bike! We decided to do a little test spin to see how hard it would be. We could barely move it!-Until Nathan realized we still had the break on! We "biked" down Monterey and I had a blast dinging the little bell when people wouldn't get out of the way. If you ever get a chance to rent one of these, do it! It even had buckled seats in the front for kids!

This was on top of one of the highest residential hills in San Francisco. It was a georgeous view and felt so far away from the bustle of the city.

After we went to SF for the afternoon we went down to Sausilito, across the Golden Gate bride. It is a cute little harbor town with great little cafe's and shops.

After Sausilito, we went to Napa Valley. We visited a couple different places. This is a pic of the gardens at the Domaine Carneros vineyard. It was very pretty!
