Pregerific Michele!
Follow Michele through her pregnancy! Every day the belly grew, and many days Greg got a photo of her on her way out the door. Nearly forty weeks of cute-ass outfits.

Early Pregerificness
Fancy Loretta is, among other things, a fantastic photographer. She came over to our place during Michele's second trimester of pregerificness for a photo shoot.

Later Pregerificness
A second photo shoot with Loretta. This time we headed to Maclaren Park. And this time the belly is HUGE.
          [Bubblicious]

Showered
Friends and family helped welcome our baby into the world.

di Rosa Preserve
Di Rosa is a beautiful art and nature preserve in Napa. We took Ryder for a day of art, sunshine, and peacocks.

Barry's 40th B-Day
Michele's brother, Barry, turned 40 in March 2005. We've got the pictures to prove it.
          [Happy B-Day B!]

Golden Gate Bridge Walk
We have a tradition of being tourists in our own back yard. Greg also enjoys taking Michele on adventures she hasn't experienced yet (see Alcatraz, below). Upon our return from Japan in the summer of 2004, we took a long walk on a big bridge.

Alcatraz
Michele has lived in the Bay Area for the better part of the last 15 years, and had never been to Alcatraz. Greg did the right thing and kidnapped her on her birthday in 2003 and took her to straight to Cell Block D.
          [The Rock]

Gliding
Greg gets to soar in a glider for a morning. The perks of being a fundraising auctioneer are many, but this one ranks way up at the top of the list. John Williams, parent from the ISTP, gives Greg a ride he'll never forget.

Thanksgiving 2004
These Thanksgiving pics contain no turkeys, no stuffing, and no pie.
          [Thanks again]

Think Greene
In October, Shauna and Tony came up from LA with their darling daughter, Tessa.
          [All Tessed up]

Halloween 2004: Acid Cabaret
The Acid Cabaret is the quintessential underground party. A live band, an open mic, a relentless MC, and some of the most talented/brave/death-defying audience members/participants you'll ever see.
          [Acid Cabaret]

Footsies
Michele had bunion surgery on both feet in September of 2002. Though we had both done a lot of research on the surgery and its end results, no one ever bothered to tell us how badly it would really hurt. If you are considering bunion surgery, you should view this gallery, but may not want to. Warning: Graphic Images.

Dylan's 4th Birthday
When our nephew Dylan turned four, we went down to Los Angeles to celebrate.
          [Dylan!]

Thanksgiving 2001
We went down to LA to give thanks with Michele's family. Then went to Davis to celebrate with Greg's uncle and his wife.
          [Thanks!]

Burning Man Prep 2001
How does one get ready for Burning Man? Start a fire, get yourself some hair dye, take on an art project bigger than you've ever done before, kiss your dog goodbye and have some fun!
          [Strike Anywhere]

Sunset Cruise: July, 2001
This ain't your college dorm's boat party. House on the lower deck, funky eclectic beats upstairs, with views of San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge, and the whole Bay Area, it doesn't get better than this.
          [Sunset Cruise]

QooL Luau: July 11, 2001
There's a party called QooL that happens every Wednesday night at 111 Minna.
For a long period of time we were regulars. Sometimes there would be unofficial theme nights. On July 11, 2001, the theme was Luau.
          [QooL, Yo]

Welcome Nicolette!
In June, Michele's brother and his wife Leslie welcomed their daughter into the world.
          [Baby, baby, baby]

Grandmaster Robbie the Robot
Ah, the heady days of the Dot Com Crash©. What would you do if your company was on the way down, but you still wanted to collect that Interweb Salary to the bitter end? We played with our dolls, that's what.
          [Robbie T]

Frenchy Joel's Au Revoir: June, 2001
When Joel, the Frenchy, opted to head back to his motherland he threw one last party with The Frenchies. They set up turntables, and invited Greg to come spin his first ever set out...
          [Gig #1]

GHI and Buh-Bye
Before Carmen left for New Mexico, she threw one final going away party with the GHI crew. Have fun off on your new life Carmencita, we'll miss you!
          [GHI!]

Go Fly a Kite
Greg took Michele to the beach to fly a kite for her first time.

We're probably not the only people who use our cameras while driving across the various bridges in the Bay Area. We're probably just the only people who confess to it. Proof that driving and art can mix, just don't notify the CHP.
