Family Top Ten in San Francisco

IMG_7714Hi friends– We’re home.  After 6 fine days in San Francisco.  I was absolutely heart-warmed by all the time with our kids here.  Here’s our the top ten:

#9.  Trip up to Petaluma, across the Golden Gate and along the bay with a stop in the old city center for coffee and chocolate with Ani and Brian.  #10.  Getting to know Harry– Ani and Brian’s new adopted pet– the sweetest dog in SF.

  1. What fun! Baby Mae is just beautiful and that lovely quilt you made will keep her nice & warm. Enjoyed the pictures, great post! Thanks for sharing your wonderful time with us 🙂

    • Yep Lulu, it was a great longish weekend with those kids. Harry is a sweet dog– comes up and puts his head on my lap for some snuggles. I love his cockeyed ear that always sticks up so cute!
