the adventure of the not so sunshine state

Well I know its been a while since I've posted, but with school starting, life has been pretty crazy! Last month we went on our first road trip together to California. It was sure an adventure!

First we went to San Francisco and much to our surprise it was freezing (well like fifty degrees)!! Middle of August and we needed pants, and jackets, and of course, I was STILL freezing!! The night we got there, we drove over to the San Francisco Bridge...and almost got blown away!

My hair in this pic is fantastic!
We then drove over to Sausalito this charming little hillside town. We got there around 7 and literally EVERYTHING was closed!! All the darling little shops and cafes all closed...and of COURSE we were STARVING! So we ended up eating and this strange restaurant  with a bar and ice cream parlor in the front and a fake tree-filled restaurant in the back. Our waitress and the owner were eating ice cream in the table RIGHT next to us...totally awkward! All of the sea food was super expensive so we ordered the cheapest thing on the menu...burgers! And they were actually delicious!

We walked over to the marina and thought about how awesome it would be if we were actually members of the yacht club.

The next day we woke up early and took the train into San Francisco. Right after we got off, I spotted two guys with delicious looking waffles. I had to go ask them where they got them, because as we all know, I am in love with waffles!  They told us they were in the Ferry building and to just look for the line. And let me tell ya, they were DELICIOUS! We also got hot chocolate with a leaf design poured in with the cream...pretty dang awesome!

We spent the rest of the day walking around the city...Pier 39, Fisherman's wharf, Ghiradelli square, Boudin's, Russian Hill, China town, Union Square and an old fashioned cable car ride! Quite the day and filled with fun! I think Spencer's favorite part was the seals at fisherman's wharf. He started to narrate what they were doing as they tried to wrestle for space on the docks! It was pretty hilarious!

The next morning we took off for Carlsbad...just another 8 hour biggie :) The next week was spent chillaxing on the beach (good thing too because I had a terrible cold and was in need of serious relaxation.)

(Awesome video to come which sums up our week perfectly! Get excited...)
