Our Story
Amy & Bill Capture Davis…
is a story about falling in love with the little things
by falling in love with the big things
by way of falling in love.
1999: a short boy and a tall girl fell in love and began exploring life together. At first what we noticed was how new the whole world looked. We dreamed big dreams and wanted to see everything.
2005: after graduate school in Richmond, VA, we packed up and headed west for our “real jobs” in Davis, CA. We began to slow down and notice the beauty of the seasons at the Farmers Market.
2008: Our first child was born. We began to notice the gifts of everyday and how little toes and sunlight could ma

A Staycation to Remember

This holiday season, try a DIY “Staycation,” and Discover It Yourself in Downtown Davis. As Davis resident Kyle Monhollen uncovered this fall, there are treasures around every corner. Below, Kyle describes the unexpected rewards of his adventure with his wife and two daughters:

This summer my friend Nina wrote an article announcing our family’s intention to take a Staycation – a vacation without leaving town. Our plans conflicted first with Lance Armstrong, then with an army of parents delivering mini-fridges and high school graduates to UC Davis. So our summer Staycation finally took place in the first days of autumn, but this is Davis so it might as well be July until October, right? Staycation, 2011, woo-hoo!

Due to soccer schedules we didn’t accomplish everything on our list (sorry U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame), but we still painted the town in fine fashion. We started by checking into the University Park Inn, then took a walk Downtown for lunch. On our way, we visited our pal Nina who was hosting the Indie Davis craft fair, showcasing talented locals who are doing their best to make Downtown a creative, community-minded destination.

Eventually we wandered back to the hotel for a swim. A few cannonballs and warm towels later we were showered and ready to walk back Downtown for dinner and ice cream. Soccer, swimming and all that walking made for a satisfying day and early night by vacation standards.

Sunday started with a run for Amy, and cartoons and continental breakfast in pajamas for the rest of us. The morning culminated in brunch—coffee, carbohydrates and crayons at Café Italia—the perfect thing to sustain another leisurely afternoon downtown. We stopped by Outdoor Davis, Fleet Feet, Alphabet Moon and Avid Reader, and […]
