Our Trip To California - Part One

We spent the first half of our California vacation in San Francisco visiting my mother. We started out by hitting the beach....can you say brrrr. It was a tad chillier that day than we expected but lots of fun was had by all.

We spent a day hanging out at the house making totally cute owls! The girls all had a blast picking out different materials and piecing them together. We helped Jaquelyn and Rebecca but Taylor and Teresa did their own sewing!!

Here is adorable Porter posing with all the owls we made.

There is a dog walking area near my mom's house that she takes Porter each day and the girls really enjoyed going up there several times and checking out the sites. You can see for miles (if it's not foggy...this is San Francisco after all). On a clear day you can see both the Golden Gate Bridge and Bay Bridge, Candlestick(3Com) Park, Oakland and tons of other places that you may or may not have heard of.

We spent a day down at Fisherman's Wharf/Pier 39 doing the touristy thing. We saw lots of cool stuff and the kids seemed to enjoy themselves. They especially enjoyed seeing the funny street performers that were all over the place. There was one guy who had a big bush in front of himself and he would pop out at people walking by who weren't paying attention.

We also went to another beach on a day that it was a bit warmer. Everyone had fun and played hard. There must have been something going on because there were tons of kite boarders out in the Bay all in a big group. There are lots of things I would like to try but kite boarding or wind surfing out in the Bay...definitely NOT on my list.

We did lots of other little things while we were there but there is really too much to mention so here are just a few pictures of hanging out and chillin'. We stopped off at a little park and I thought the sign they had up was soooo funny!
