Our San Francisco Treat

Well hello! We are recuperating from our AWESOME trip to San Francisco! Typically every Memorial Day weekend we take a trip with Grant's family, and this year was no exception. We had a wonderful time. None of us, except Ronda, had ever been there before. On the flight up, Grant and I were having a very mature discussion about what we knew about the city. We both decided that we knew the following facts about the city by the bay: Rice-a-Roni, Trolleys, Full House, Alcatraz, Mrs. Doubtfire. That was pretty much it! :) It was VERY COLD there! I was so surprised. I kept forgetting I was in "Sunny California". I felt like I was up north somewhere. It was windy beyond windy, which resulted in a not-so-great hair trip for Jen. But that's okay!


Here is a cool pic of the city... sooo many hills!

Craziest thing in the world! On my first day there, Grant and I were walking down a busy street and I walked RIGHT INTO my friend Laura that I have known since the 5th grade! I haven't seen her in years! We kinda just stood there and stared at each other for a few minutes with our jaws dropped! Turns out she goes to grad school there but it was SO surreal! I was like, "GRANT, YOU HAVE TO TAKE OUR PICTURE!" I mean what are the odds?!?


We headed on down to Fisherman's Wharf, which may have been my favorite place. There were hundreds upon hundreds of sea lions that were immensely entertaining. I could've stared at them all day. They really needed 2 things in life, 1. To take a nap. and 2. To take a nap in the space they wanted to nap in.


Here is hubby looking out to Alcatraz.


This very well may have been the highlight of our trip. This is where they filmed the opening to Full House!!!!!!! They had a picnic right there on that grass! Grant and I sang the theme song the whole time! "Everywhere you look...."


Here we are in front of the Golden Gate Bridge! Note: I apologize profusely for my hair in this picture. Like I said, it was windy. I am kinda regretting posting this pic for all the world to see, but the background is cute. Maybe I should photoshop myself out of it :)
Pretty!
Grant's sweet parents! I think this is an adorable picture of them! We were so blessed to be taken on such a fun trip, thanks mom and dad!
The bridge again...

On Sunday we went to Muir Woods and got to really enjoy much of the Lord's creation. These redwood trees were insanely huge.

So pretty!
Me and Ronda inside of a tree, and very cold.....
Baby deer....
Grant & Jen in the Forest

Anyhoo, it was a wonderful trip, and we are so grateful to Grant's parents for our San Francisco treat! We are about to head out to dinner with some friends cause TODAY IS GRANT'S BIRTHDAY! So I gotta go. I've missed ya'll!
