Hi there– Just back from a rollicking trip to SF with the grand-girls! It was a whole lot of swinging, sliding, singing, dancing, jumping, story reading, ice cream licking fun…
Before we started off we wrote up our TRIP RULES:
#1. Play on at (at least) 3 playgrounds
#2. Take Harry the Dog for a walk daily
#3. Eat 5 ice cream cones
#4. Give 10 hugs every day
#5. No grouching allowed
Here’s the highlights:
There was the big day out at the San Francisco Zoo! Love zoos and this is a perfect one– not too big, not too small, lushly landscaped and easy access to all those animals– Oh the giant giraffes, the tumbling otters, the stately gorillas… Throw in a playground set in three world biomes and a carrousel and it was a super day out!
Harry the Dog and the grand-dgirls had a running good time one evening at Crissy Field, in the shadow of the gold Gate Bridge. (In the first picture they are pretending to be exhausted after running non stop all evening)
We launched out on a foggy morning hike along the Land’s End Trail– catching glimpses of the Golden Gate through the shifting fog. Loved all the ocean views, forested pathways and wild flowers. (The dramatic pose on the bottom left are hikers being frightened in the scary forest–???)
Thanks Aaron & Jessica for the great “hang-out” time. And thanks Ani & Brian for planning so many great outings and cosseting us at the Casa Heung. And thanks Charlotte & Maryann for being cheerful, excited, curious, enthusiastic travel buddies. Loved it!
