Spring Break Visitors

We were so lucky to get such great visitors for Spring Break! First our friends Alex, Amanda, Stephanie, and Junior met up with us at Disneyland for Grey's first Disney experience. The day was so perfect, sunny but not too hot and the lines weren't that bad. Right as we walked in, we were greeted by Mickey Mouse himself, and he made quite an impression on Grey!

Junior became Grey's new best friend and didn't want to be put down!

Grey was super happy in Alex's arms because he was so high up!

Grey's first ride was Toy Story's Midway Mania. It was a lot to take in!

The next day I met up with Jaden, Sharon, and Natalie at Disneyland once again. Grey would not sit down he made me push him in the stroller standing up.

I am not so sure he loves Winnie the Pooh... the ride seemed a little scary to him

The rest of the week J, S, and N stayed with us in Del Mar and they let us explore the tide pools in San Diego with them.

The week was a blast and it was so good to see people from home. They are missed SO much!

San Francisco

So I would have had a bunch of darling photos for you but my iPhone crashed and took my pictures with it :(...  But we had such a fun time on an overnight trip to San Francisco. I had never been there before. People always said how dirty it was and so I didn't really have a desire to go. BUT it was great! I love the architecture and the people were so nice. We stayed at the Westin St. Francis and went to the top floor to see the entire city. It was beautiful... you will have to take my word for it since I don't have my pictures to prove it.

We just walked every where.. through Union Square, Chinatown, Little Italy, Fisherman's Wharf. We shopped and tried things along the way. We went to the this floating sushi boat restaurant where these little boats go around the buffet and you stop the boats when you see something you want on them. I stole all of the strawberries (my fave) and it was a little weird to have them at a sushi restaurant but I loved it. I also had real Chinese Ramen for my first time.

We had the best Cannoli s but I don't remember where, and yummy fresh pizza down by the wharf. OF course we went to Ghirardelli Square and ate lots and lots of chocolate!

If you haven't figured this out about me yet... my vacations revolve around food.

The next day was rainy so we shopped (the other thing my vacations revolve around).
San Francisco has the BEST shopping! It is like New York but better weather and not so crazy.

I have one regret about the trip... Because it was raining, and we had the little one with us, we didn't make it to the Golden Gate Bridge. Bummer, I know. But that just means I will have to go back!

The few pictures that I do have are ones I sent on to my mom and mother-in-law. Just of Grey, but dang cute.

A piece of very good advice: BACK UP YOUR PHONE'S PICTURES! ;)
