I Left My Heart In San Francisco ( well, a little of it anyway)

I have not fallen off the face of the earth. I have been carting my kids to San Francisco. Papa and I helped with the big move. It was an adventure. We didn't want to go over Donner's Pass because the weather forecast was horrible. I didn't want to relive history, get stuck in the snow and have to eat my grandchildren to survive so we went south.

We passed Vegas, the kids were in awe of that place. We drove to Bakersfield CA. in one day. It was so fun. (whatever) We stayed in a very nice Holiday Inn. The kids were in awe of that place too. They don't get out much. The next morning we were off bright and early for Fremont CA.

We spent the next few days unpacking and putting things away. Cleaning etc. We did get out to Fisherman's Wharf one afternoon, some pics are below.





This is right before we left for the airport to come home. We were having a giant hug. Taylor grabbed my camera and took this shot. I'm glad she did.
Here is Papa with the boys at the Wharf.

I had Taylor get in this one. Pete was at a fancy work party for employee's only. RUDE!

Sitting in the sunshine. I have to say I did not mind the weather!

Looks so great! SF is some place I want to go this year. Haven't been in a long time.

I love the cuddle picture! I'm glad everyone got there safe. It was wise to skip the pass for sure. My BIL blew up the engine in the UHaul that moved us back home after the twins were born (Mom and I flew home with the 5 lb. babies). The guys had to completely empty the UHaul and repack it! So glad their move was less eventful.

And I'll bet the quiet in your house is starting to seem pretty loud right about now...

Looks like you have been sooooo busy! Nothing like a move in the middle of Christmas to make you unbored!
Hope you have a great week. Merry Christmas!!!!

My parents used to live in Walnut Creek. Loved to go to SF on BART with the kids. So much to do there. Glad you didn't have to eat your grandchildren. They look a little scrawny to me. Mimi

How was the trip back? I bet it was quieter and lonlier and FANTASTIC! I'm sure you're going to miss those sweet little ones and at the same time, appreciate the quiet and the time to yourself! (If there is such a thing)

Looks like you got it all put away and even set up Christmas. They are sure going to miss you! They should have left a week later so we could have seen them. At least if we want to go anywhere warm we can go visit.

Emma said...

wow what a trip!!

Amanda said...

Sounds like you guys had a fun adventure!

It must have been a bit lonely to come home to a quiet and empty house though :(.

I removed a comment because it was not written in English. I would suppose that if you can read english then you can write in english. It could have been a sweet nice comment, but because I did not know what it said ( It could have been something nasty and mean.) I deleted it. It is sad that we live in a world where you have to worry about such things. I am certainly not trying to offend anyone. So to whoever sent it.... if it was sweet and nice please forgive me. If it was mean and nasty well, no comment.

Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be on
the net the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people think about worries that they plainly
do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and
also defined out the whole thing without having side effect ,
people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.
Thanks
