Mt. Diablo

While Mom was away I tried to play good Daddy and took the kids to the highly anticipated, peak of Mt. Diablo! The peak is just a jaunt from our church and conveniently close. Due to a potential nauseating car ride, Jen was glad she was not present. The ride encompasses at least 7 miles of very windy roads, I loved every minute of it (as I rocked out to Jack Johnson). Alas when we got to the top I found Berkleigh staring at me with vomit all over her! She gave me a look like, why did you abandon my needs for these last few miles, mommy never would. I took off all her clothes, put on a sweatshirt, and it was business as usual.
Us at the top of Mt Diablo with an amazing 360 view sac town, SF, south bay and modesto

This is the actual peak conveniently in a museum, probably the tallest peak they'll reach in a while

Us having a lunch overlooking the easy bay it was a blast!

What a fun Daddy date! I think Pat and I need to check it out up there. It looks beautiful!

Good for you Tyson!
I think it is great that you went out and did something with them...even if there was vomit. (I can just picture Berkleighs face) But those windy roads were probably worth it for you huh? :)

Ya Tyson! I think that these pictures are precious! I also think Berkleigh looks like a little chipmunk eating the Englsih Muffin. It's a gorgeous view and I'm glad you were able to see it before you leave.

SO cute! I love Berkleigh in the jacket and diaper :) Such a Daddy save right?!

Tyson, you are a brave dad to take them on your own! I love it when Jose takes Clark places. Gives me a much needed breather. Good job!

Daddy time is the best! I was laughing out loud when I read the part about Tyson discovering B's throw-up! and when I saw the title of the blog I instantly thought of the oven we had when we lived in the villa.
