Hi all– It was a grand grandkid time. If you some grandkids yourself, you know what I mean. We made a dash up to SF last weekend to talk and play and read books and eat with our kids. There were some sweet moments. Here’s my favorites…
Saturday morning we trekked north across the bridge to the old Fort Baker, historic military quarters, that have now been transformed into a lodge. We ate at the the Murray Circle restaurant there, overlooking the Bay and the Golden Gate. (pictures: Mae & her mom waiting for brunch, view from our table on the porch, chicken hash & eggs)
We took a blustery afternoon stroll down to Ocean Beach through the Sunset– blue skies and some good sand digging with our Mae. (pictures: Aaron & Grandpa with Mae, some good sandy digging, walk up from the beach).
And it was good to just kick back around the house and have some grand-kid time. (pictures: Grandpa and Eero having a “conversation,” opening some belated Christmas gifts together)
Sunday we ended up at Ani & Brian’s for for luscious lunch. It was the last day of their “vegetarian January” so we got in on butternut squash soup and a bright citrus salad! Love hanging out with them and, of course, that dog Harry. (pictures: warming soup! Bri & Ani, and out walking with that Harry.)
Thankful for a weekend with you all– thanks for the office tour AA, thanks for the time to talk at coffee Jessica–you know I love that, thanks for the hugs & books & smiles Eero and Mae, thanks for the beach walk & the beautiful lunch Ani & Bri. It was the best!
