Last year, July 2011, we took our yearly trip to San Francisco. Yeah, I know. I'm talking about this a whole friggin' year later. Oops. Anyway, we'd heard nothing but great things about the city so we thought we'd see for ourselves. While we were there we celebrated 1) Jer's birthday, 2) our 5th anniversary, and 3) my birthday.
And it was Awesome. With a capital A.
There's so much to do in and around the city. We rented a car a few days to take advantage of everything it has to offer. Like, going to the beach about and hour and a half away the day of my birthday. This was extra special since it was the first time Boston would ever touch the Pacific Ocean.....or any ocean!
What made it even more special was the fact that it was our first vacation as a family of 3, when Boston had just turned 9 months old a few days before we left! So there were MANY firsts made on this trip which makes this momma happy.
Here we are about to tackle the airport with a baby. It wasn't that bad, either. After, of course, we dropped off 4 pieces of luggage, a stroller and a huge car seat. It was a breeze after that.
Oh these boys. Thank you, Jesus.
Of course, we couldn't not take a picture of all of the Sequoia trees. They are massive. Can't wait to visit Yellowstone National Park in several years to see more of them.
Palace of Fine Arts.
While driving around the city in our car, we ended up on the ocean side of San Fran. It was so peaceful. So we stopped, got out and took some pictures. Wouldn't this be pretty blown up and framed?! I think so.
Dinner time with my men.
Ordering Boston's first airbrush t-shirt with his name on it. It turned out adorable!
Here's another way-too-long video coming in at 15 minutes (oh and it has more music, fyi!). But this long video will be fun for our family to watch many years from now. :)
