Bainbridge Island, 5/2010

We just took our first big roadtrip from El Dorado Hills up to Bainbridge Island, WA.  On the way, we stopped at Castle Crags State Park, Shasta City, Klamath Falls, Crater Lake, and McMenamins’ Kennedy School in Portland.  Big thanks to Neal and Maya for the McMenamins’ Kennedy School suggestion.  That place was awesome!   When we got to Bainbridge, we had a wonderful time running in the Grand Forest and visiting the Bloedel Reserve, which is full of natural beauty and is just 5 minutes from Bill and Donna’s home.  Below are links to 3 Picasa Photo Albums created from the trip:

Samuel Vinay Chawla is Born!

Today was a wonderful day as Debby gave birth to our second son, Samuel Vinay Chawla!  Samuel was born at 8:03 AM on 1/11/2010.  He weighed 7 lb. 11 oz. and measured 19.7 in.  We are thankful that the delivery was without complications and Mom and Baby are both doing well.  Big Brother Will came by for a visit and was happy to receive several gifts from his baby brother, to which he replied “Thank you, baby” and “Can you open it, baby?”.  We’re now trying to get some rest after a long day, but have posted a few pictures.   Enjoy!
