A Trip to San Francisco

Saturday we got up bright and early (5:00 am) and drove up to San Francisco to spend some time with the kids. We started off the day by going to Grant's 1st basketball game of the season.

After the game, we went to lunch, then went shopping for a Christmas tree! Denise & Tim found the perfect one!
I also picked out a wreath for their front door.

Then we went back to Denise & Tim's house and spent the afternoon and evening playing games and having fun crafting (actually, the guys watched football on tv!) Hayden took a nap.

The next morning, I got up and took a walk down to the Marina. I walked around the Palace of Fine Arts, which was built for the Panama-Pacific Exposition in 1915.

There were lots of birds enjoying the lagoon in front of the Palace of Fine Arts.

I always take a photo (or two) of the Golden Gate Bridge. That sunny spot on the hill was caused by.........

this break in the clouds.

Then we met the grandkids for breakfast at Mel's.

And took a little drive to the crooked street, where we saw this cable car,

a view of Alcatraz

and views of Coit Tower and the Bay Bridge.

We went to visit Helena's school (she started 1st grade this year), and this is a view from the playground at her school.

The End

Fabulous photos! I did smile when you said 5am, nice and early. DAnna, 5am is the middle of the night! :D


Great photos. Made me want to take the trip! I was in San Francisco (briefly) 3 years ago.
