Our trip to San Francisco was nothing short of awesome! We saw some beautiful sights, ate some great food and had a wonderful time just the two of us celebrating 10 years of marriage! We missed our kids terribly but it was good to get away! Here are just a few pics for you. I wish I could share them all but I took something like 250! Did I shop? What do you think? Is the sky blue? I loved shopping at Macy's, H&M and some stores I really couldn't afford (Chanel, Louis Vitton). Did I exercise? Well, no officially. But SF is a walking city and its very hilly (is that a word?). By day 3 my thighs were so sore! The hills will definately give you a great workout! Enjoy the pics and I will get online later today to tell you about your surprise!
The Chinatown gate! What a truly neat place! We bought the girls chinese pajamas, jade bracelets and a chinese lantern. We bought little man assorted toys plus a Trolly that has a bell, he loves it!
Here I am with my children! Ha! These statues were on a park bench just outside the Chinatown gate! I just had to have my picture taken with them!
Oh goodness the famous sealions at Pier 39! Boy were they loud and smelly!
Here I am at Fishermans Wharf with Alcatrez in the background. Don't mind the messy hair, it was windy!
Okay I know you think I am crazy but I had to take a picture of this. This is one of the courses at one of our dinners. This reminded me of the Mastercard Commercial where the couple waits so long to go to this fabulous dinner and the food was tiny so they have to go to the convience store afterward to get food! Ha!
Here is a huge highlight of our trip. This is hubby's nephew with us. We don't get to see him very often because he lives in San Rafael (about 30 minutes from SF). It was nice to get to visit with him!
Here we are at our Official Anniversary dinner at "Michael Mina" inside the Westin St. Francis Hotel in downtown San Francisco. First of all, Michael Mina is a credit card melter! I don't think I've ever had a more expensive meal! However, it was a once in a lifetime experience!
At Muir Woods Forest in front of a Giant Redwood.
Here I am standing in a Giant Redwood tree at Muir woods forest. Those trees were huge! It was so peaceful there. We only had an hour there while we were on our tour and I wish we could have had more! I would have loved to have explored some of the hiking trails.
The Golden Gate Bridge rising up from the fog!
This is what we saw as we were coming back from Sonoma across the Golden Gate Bridge. This is at 5 pm! The sun was shining! I couldn't believe how think the fog was! It seriously looked like a wall! Wow!
Here we are at Madonna Estate Winery.
The vineyards in Sonoma were gorgeous! I really could move there!
Here we are at Cline Vineyards in Sonoma. What a beautiful place!
