Vacation Time: San Francisco

Since neither J or I had ever been to northern CA we wanted to get out of Napa for a few days of our trip and I'm so glad we did. We spent two full days in San Francisco and one day in Sausalito.
On day one we were the typical tourists and hit lots of must-see places... The stroller got some serious miles under it's wheels wandering Pier 39 & Fishermans wharf with a lot of sprinkling rain and a quick trip into Baby Gap to buy the babe some pants on the coldest day of our whole trip. We met a good friend from college for lunch at Grott's and enjoyed the down time catching up while Mark took yet another nap in the Boba. We all shared a hot fudge sundae from Ghirardelli Square and got some wiggles out overlooking the bay. We ate tacos for dinner before stopping to view the Golden Gate Bridge and heading home.

The second day in San Fran we visited AT&T Park, wandered the streets of downtown and enjoyed lunch on a patio. We finished the day with some swimming at the pool at our hotel and it was so much fun to see Mark so happy in the water.

On the last full day we weren't really sure what we wanted to do. Frankly, were out of ideas. Then I remember some talk about Sausilito being a fun place to go and I'm so glad we did. It was the cutest little town basically built into the hillside overlooking the bay. The views of the city and bridges were fantastic and while it was quite crowded with tourists we had a great time. We had clam chowder in bread bowls at a waterfront restaurant, bought super yummy homemade taffy so we could get quarters for parking and found our Christmas ornament to continue our tradition of getting one on each vacation. We headed back to the condo after a great day, packed our bags to get ready for the morning and ended the trip rested, relaxed and with lots of new memories.
I am so thankful we were able to take this trip when we did. I needed some recharging and some quality time together. The memories we created together, the adventures we went on, the smiles and laughs with my favorite boys were absolutely perfect. 

Missed part one? Go here!
