Pier 39 behind us, thought you would be able to see it, but you can't
Gwen at Pier 39: lots of fun shops, vintage candy stores, fun place to walk around. Right off the pier there were hundreds of seals that all laid out in the sun on wooden rafts that were made just for the seals.

Sweet Gwen
All the crazy, barking seals at pier 39. Kind of entertaining.

Our naughty yummy!
took some time for Gwen to have a little swing at a little local park
We carried Gwen and the stroller down this long, long stair case that was a long side of the famous crooked street on Lombard.

the crooked streeet: was such a popular attraction, so many people wait in line forever to drive down this crooked street. We walked all the way up this massive hill with the stroller to get to the top of the crooked street just so we could walk down a massive hill with the stroller.(: We were laughing and having fun while doing it though, and are glad we did it.
Just hanging out after a fun day in the city
fresh and clean
and ready for bed.

Jono and I decided that after 6 years of being married and over 4 years of having kids, we needed a little weekend get away. A very much needed get away from the kids, well almost all the kids. We decided to escape to San Fran for a break and relaxation. Gwen got to come with us since she still won't take a bottle, but she was a perfect little girl for her mom and dad. She was so good, and was loving all the attention. I had never been to San Fran, and I loved it! It was definitley a place for a fun quick trip. It was so nice to not have any particular schedule to follow. We shopped a lot in Union Square, walked all over the city, went to fishermans wharf, pier 39, ate yummy crab, ate at other yummy restraunts, went to Ghirardelli square, window shopped along cute, quaint streets with boutiques, relaxed and so on. We decided we needed to do this at least once a year if not more! I missed my boys tons by the end, but was loving the time I had with Jono! Its not very often that I get to hang out one on one with my man. (: Thanks Jono for taking me and for making it such a fun weekend. I think we will definitely be making a return to this great city!

So fun to go to San Fran and shop and eat! Gwen must have loved being the center of your attention. She looks pretty do her parents.
Shelly, you have been to San were in my womb and didn't see a thing...but you were there! :)

It is fun to see all of the things you guys got to do in San Francisco. I'm so glad you went. What wonderful memories of your getting married celebration. That marriage sure has been a blessing to our whole family. ILYT oxoxox
