|"Mom...take me with you. I fit, see?" Tempting, very tempting.|
|The first night we arrived in San Fran, we ate @ Joe's Crab Shack. A must. And a fabulous way to start off our trip!|
|It didn't matter though. This guy kept me laughing the entire journey back.|
|Birthday boy request. Yum!|
|Birthday boy's birthday dinner. Over looking the Golden Gate Bridge.|
|Saw this and thought of G back home.|
|We were brave and ventured out on a city bus to an old AMC Theatre. It was at least 12 stories tall, our movie was on the top floor. Sooo fun!|
This was the most bittersweet part of the trip. It was so wonderful and much needed to chat with my lovies, but so, so painful to be away from them. Love these sweet kids! Thank goodness for Facetime.
Much needed quiet time. Obviously.
electric bikes. I felt bad for a whole two seconds for those using their own muscles to push their bikes up some serious climbs.
We got to Sausalito and decided instead of getting on the ferry with our bikes and riding back to drop off the bikes, we would journey on. We pulled out our iPhones and figured Muir Woods was only, oh, a few more miles. So on we went. And on, and on, and on. At some point we were in a neighborhood, in like someone's back yard. Then asking for directions. 15 miles later after Ryan's bike battery died, and WE almost died riding our bikes through a canyon HIGHWAY to Muir Woods, we made it. It was beautiful and glorious and everything we thought it would be. We almost forgot we had to ride our bikes back.
After we enjoyed a few hours at Muir Woods, we climbed the mountain highway back to Sausalito. It was a gorgeous ride. The weather was perfect, and the view was to die for. Which we almost did. There was so much traffic on that road back, I didn't think we were going to make it. Seriously. But it definitely made some good memories and laughs. Like the time we pulled up to a stop sign and I tried to race a road biker. Or the time I dusted out Ryan while pretending to be Nacho Libre on my electric bike.
|Loved this view from my airplane window on the ride home. Goodbye Golden Gate Bridge.|
