we {heart} San Francisco

We ended up staying the night at my parents house after my Mom's party. The boys had a break(Monday)from school due to Presidents Day. We decided to spend the day in San Fran.

Can you believe that John and I were born and raised in the Bay Area(and have been to San Fran many times)and have never been to Golden Gate Park? Well, today was the day.

First stop, The Tulip Gardens. They are located inside of Golden Gate Park. The tulips were all red(be still my heart) and so beautiful.
*Warning: lots of pictures in this post. There were too many good ones to leave any out.

Next stop, Koret Children's Park(located inside of Golden Gate Park). We had looked this park up online and knew that there were cement slides and thought the boys would love it. We were right, they loved it. Cement Slides and a great structure to climb boy fun.

You can't tell in this photo, but the kid next to Garrett had a Frisbee Velcro-ed to his rear end. You could tell they were locals :-) waiting for cardboard for that kid.

We grabbed sandwiches for lunch and headed to the beach. This was a new beach for us and has now become a family favorite. Check out the view! We will be heading back to this beach once the weather warms up & we can't wait!

The clouds did not stop our boys from hitting the water.

This boy was so proud to be wearing his SF Giants jersey in SF.

This boy wouldn't hold still. He was worried the waves were going to crash on him.

Some nice lady was willing to take some family photos for us. I loved that she didn't snap just one. She took like 10. This is my favorite and will be our 6 people twelve times photo for February.

Our last stop in San Francisco was the Golden Gate Bridge. We drove across the bridge and the clouds parted and there was sunshine. It was gorgeous and clear. We had a perfect view of the city.

We made out way out of the city by driving along the Piers and Fisherman's Wharf. You know it was an awesome, fun filled day when this is what you find in your back seat on your way home.
