It's the last week of summer vacation and we are in Oakland, CA visiting our friends Kate and Greg in their awesome home. Here are some pics of their lovely dog Oscar, quite possibly the best dog ever! We continue the celebration of the boys' ninth birthday by treating the boys to an afternoon in SF and a stop at a lovely cupcake shop called Kara's Cupcakes which I highly recommend. It was the best. Look at the full set of pics from Kara's Cupcakes here. Finally, I provide you with an arty shot in homage to a fellow photographer friend from flickr, of the Oliver's converse as he climbs a pedestrian light post while waiting for his Dad to get back from the car (putting away the dozen cupcakes we just purchased before heading to the Bay Aquarium). Having fun and hope you are too, in these last summer days!
