Bocce with the Gang

My friends treat me to a fun Saturday for my birthday. They treat me to an exhilerating afternoon playing Bocce at Campo di Bocce in Los Gatos (my team won!). After bocce we strolled through quaint Los Gatos window shopping (no more Domus!). We then headed to downtown San Jose to Julie and Brian's home, from there we walked through San Jose State to get to Naglee Park Garage Restaurant (I haven't been to my alma mater in decades!) It was a delicious dinner, thanks for the suggestion Kelly. Afterwards we headed back to Julie/Brians for gifts, cake and a round of Mexican Train. (Julie the cake was DELICIOUS! and that cake topper was perfect!). Thanks everyone for celebrating my special day, I appreciate you treating me to all the fun. Love you all!
