Well, the summer is over and the craziest part is that around here in the Bay Area, September and October seem to have the best weather. So, I’ll be soaking up some sun while its still here but soon enough I know I’ll be itching to get my snowboard out of the garage.
Needless to say, its been pretty busy around the house since Tolan and Dorothy came home from the hospital and we’ve just been taking some time to introduce Dorothy to everybody and spend some good quality family time around the house. Hayden has really taken to her and it is really amazing to watch them together.
But, we did get away for a couple of days when the entire family headed up to Calistoga for group vacation. Tolan’s brother arranged for a big house for us all to chill out, swim and play with the kids and it was truly the most relaxing thing I’ve done in a long time. No cell phones, no meetings, just hangin’ with the gang. I couldn’t have asked for a better vacation. Take a peek at this picture of Hayden and I in the pool…I love it.
Vacation is over and its time to get back to work and I hope to be seeing some of you soon. While I’m on my way to New York to shoot some new episodes of Tyler’s Ultimate, I’m going to stop through my hometown of Greenville, SC, to take part in an amazing food festival called Euphoria on September 13 and 14. There’s a great line up of chefs and the proceeds support some amazing local charities. If you are in the area, come on down to Greenville and say hello.
Stay tuned in the coming weeks as I fill you in on a bunch of dates for my upcoming book tour to support the release of my two new books, Stirring the Pot and Dinner At My Place. Its going to be a busy Fall season and I look forward to seeing a lot of you along the way.
