Love, Love, Love

THE FIRE DOG 1946 AND 2006
Fire Dogs are natural leaders.
Fire Dogs are popular, charismatic people, always surrounded by a group of admirers. Not only admired for their vibrant personalities, these Dogs also possess a sexual attractiveness that makes them irresistible. These people are adventurous and vivacious, yet, honest and openhearted. However, because they are so active, they are generally not the settle down type.

Packing Break

This is what we look like when Melanie & Em take a much needed break from packing - as you can tell by the hospital gown on me I take the breaks a little more often. Thursday June 01 - the container truck gets filled up & our stuff heads off to Boston..... Posted by Picasa

Momma's Day on the Deck

Here is emily enjoying her first "real" mothers day ... with a coffee au lait, the Sunday NY Times & lil blasto strapped to her chest. It was one of the hottest days in recent memory & the boy decided he would go on strike with the nursing for the day... but lucky for me picked it up again like a natural once it cooled down in the late afternoon.

Crossing the Threshold

Here I am bringing little Riley (still called blasto by his moms) into the house for the first time. He is about 2 days old & not really paying attention but it was a BIG moment for us.

Senior Boat Trip....

Who knew that we were only a couple days away from being moms.... Em invited me to come along with her, Chitra, Mel & Holly on the UCSF Grad midnight cruise around the bay. I didn't realize at the time that it was going to be our last dinner out together as a two-some. Blasto did enjoy the music and dancing and I only felt a little sick once during the ride... although we all agreed it could have been about an hour shorter than it was. Side Note: I have always loved the big metal things they use to unload the ships - they look like giant horses to me. Posted by Picasa
