not always "Good To Be Home"

Last night we got back from a week of visiting my sisters in California.  We're glad to be out of the car, but that's about it.  Eli cried when it was time to go and I got teary too.

My sister in Switzerland was coming out and I was obviously going too.  Every few years the three of us are actually together. A really big treat.  Those of you close to family need to appreciate, just saying.

I took 300 pictures, but I'll spare you.  Here's a summary.

The Drive

Haven't seen one of these in ages, probably so unsafe they're illegal.
Go to the city park in Winnemucca for a fix. 

Just Another Sunday At Church

Muir Woods

Pier 39

Posing on the Ferry

California Academy of Sciences

Japanese Tea Garden

Eli loved this crazy bridge, went over 3 or 4 times.
Didn't mind hogging it from the other tourists.

China Town-
Brian's Only Request

Best store, Brian went crazy.
Not Pets, especially the quartered turtle
Dim Sum lunch where the locals go, New Asia.

Oldest Buddhist temple in SF, was worried Eli
was going to take an orange from the offering plates.

Brian's very own family name stamp.

Baker Beach
All the cousins

Loved the sand so much she wore it on her lips.

The End

Esme! She really surprises me at how big she is getting, and so stinkin' cute. How fun that you got to do that and be with your sister's. I'm so glad we took advantage of how close to home we were in p-town.
