Niece Julia and Noni Visit

We did so much when my niece and mom were here in Berkeley last week


Cafe Leila for Breakfast

Obligatory smiles in the car!
Shopping for a UC Berkeley hoodie

Julia picked up some local clothing with everyone’s help.


A bit large on Julia

Apparently, some Berkeleyans are larger than others ;-)

The Museum of Paleontology at UC Berkeley!

Julia discovered that hidden in the center of campus, UC Berkeley has a Museum of Paleontology! There was a T-Rex, pterodactyl above us and the most studious triceratops. Julia and I noticed the triceratops just outside the library. We made a point to step inside the library to hear and feel what that serious science library was like. It was pretty intense.


The Greek Theater

The Greek Theater!


Cheeseboard pizza was so much fun! You can see the live music over their shoulders! Hanging out, eating the most amazing pizza with family was just great.

At the Airbnb just a block from the house.




Julia had heard fables about In-N-Out Burger. They are all true!

Afterward, we went to The Crucible and American Steel Studios to check out the giant art in progress!



Crepevine and Philz Coffee happened with smiles.


The Tilden Park Steam Trains were simply magical!



Julia was given a going away present by Patricia, the Airbnb owner.




Goodbyes after 4th Street shopping and Tacubaya.




Also in there we stopped for the Grizzly Peak Boulevard view, Berkeley Farmers Market

    Looks like a great visit in a great city! I’m guessing your Mom has never had any luck denying your parentage? You two look just alike!

    WOW! Sounds like fun. Wish I could have been there! XO
