Memorial Day Weekend 2008

- Last year for Memorial Day Weekend Darcy went to Las Vegas for her friend Suzi's wedding, and I went to Portland for my friend Ben's wedding. I used Narduzzi Nation to write about that experience. Because we were both going to be gone, my parents watched Bosco, which I wrote about here. A year later we didn't have such exciting plans, but we did stay fairly busy.

- Friday evening we saw the new Indiana Jones movie. I wasn't a big fan of the movie, although Darcy thought it was not bad. There are some cool visually pleasing action scenes, but I just could not get into the story.

- On Saturday night Darcy and I met my family in San Fransisco to celebrate my mom's 53rd birthday. We went to a restaurant in North Beach called Bocce. It was delicious and the service was great. It was also the first time me, Darcy, and my big sister Trisha got to meet my little sister's boyfriend James.

Here's the gang minus James who is taking the picture:

My dad bought my mom a beautiful diamond necklace for her birthday:

- On Sunday Darcy and I spent the day in Pleasanton and Walnut Creek. Our friends Krissy and Andrew needed a babysitter for their daughter Malana, who was born just 3.5 months ago on Super Bowl Sunday. Darcy offered her services and Bosco and I decided to join her. While babysitting, Darcy and I, as well as Bosco, walked (25 minute walk each way) to downtown Pleasanton for lunch at Blue Agave. We also got the camera out and tried to get some shots of Malana smiling and sleeping as you can see below. At about 5pm, we drove to meet Krissy and Andrew in Walnut Creek for dinner at one of their friend's house. It turned out to be a great evening with amazing food (the host is a professional chef!) and good company. We didn't leave Walnut Creek until after 10pm.

Happy Malana:

- Today we took advantage of the national holiday and relaxed. I went out to Cinnabar to hit golf balls while Darcy hung out at home with Bosco. When I got home, Bosco and I played some frisbee. Now we are watching Jeopardy. We have been recording it now that Larissa Kelly is going on a run. We are rooting for her to win her fifth straight - and she just did! Everyone watch Jeopardy this week and root for Larissa!

I was able to find a picture of her online:
