I'm back!

Hello again :-)

I'm home safe & sound from my San Francisco trip!  But really, I've just been slacking in the blogging world because I've been home since Tuesday morning...woopsssss

I've just been tired & pretty busy this week.  But anywho...

San Francisco was WONDERFUL!  I truly had an amazing time.  The city is absolutely beautiful, the weather was perfect, and it was great for us all to be together as a family.  Here are some pictures that highlight our trip:

Golden Gate Bridge...obviously.  All together again :)


 The Island of Alcatraz!  So cool...but SO creepy!!


 Inside the Alcatraz Penitentiary...ha!


 Fisherman's Wharf


About to get some yummy seafood! :)


 Blue Angels!  The airshow just happened to be in San Fran that weekend.  How perfect was that?!?  Josh was in absolute heaven.  And to be honest, so was I.  Seeing jets soar through the sky and knowing how much love Josh has for aviation makes my heart feel warm inside.  People need to appreciate flying more.   It's freaking sweet!


 And last, but certainly not least, The Painted Ladies.  Yes, this was from the opening credits of Full House, aka: Best TV show of all time.  This was probably my favorite spot in the entire city.  It shows such a nice contrast between the old & the new.  A line of Victorian Homes with the skyscrapers as a backdrop.  

And yes, I did see the original Full House house.  BUT...it was while we were on a tour and we were just driving by.  I tried to snap a picture super fast but it didnt really come out.  How lame.  But at least I was still there!!!  for a second

I'm really sad our trip is over, but honestly, it just made me want to start planning our next vacation asap.  I'm thinking a Mediterranean cruise in April!  How awesome would that be?!  It would start in Rome, Italy and then go to Sicily, Turkey, and (Athens) Greece.  What are your thoughts?  I've never been on a cruise before, but that sounds like an awesome way to see some beautiful places.  I feel like Josh and I need to get one more big trip in before we have a baby.  


Okay...so on a completely different note - Josh STILL has not found out if he's been awarded Captain.  I mean seriously.  This is getting ridiculous.  Ugh...whatev.  Hopefully I have some news on that subject soon.  

XOXO,

Several things: You should call your followers "Frequent Flyers". LOL Can you tell it's late at night and I've been with the kids all day? Second, you should definitely take another trip before the baby arrives. And, I looove the Blue Angels, aren't they awesome? And finally, looks like you had a great time with your family. Following you now from a weekend hop!! Have a great Sunday,
