Are you guys newlyweds???

Two days after reid got back from his 7 day business trip to Belgium, he had to leave to attend a conference in San Fran. the thought of him there, and me here.....alone.....with the girls......again....was just too much! so we did it! we got me a ticket to SF and we finally had our very first post-children get-a-way! it was short, but it was AWESOME!!!

I flew out Friday afternoon, shopped for a few hours while his conference wrapped up (they have an H&M!!) and then met up with Reid for dinner. We had the best 36 hours of our lives!!!! and i guess it showed cause people kept asking us if we were newlyweds--i know, i know, how cute, huh?!?! we kinda felt like it, too!

San Fran is beautiful!! I'd never been there, and had always wanted to. We saw just about everything we wanted to, and had time to relax, and sleep-in, too!! If only it could have lasted longer...(but who can afford to pay a babysitter for more than 2 days!?!?! These are the moments we wish we lived near family....)

here are a few pics

Here we are on the crooked Lombard Street (you have to click on it to see the street...)



Loved, loved, LOVED the trolley!!!


Can you see the seals behind our huge heads?
Anyone who's been to Pier 39 knows these very seals...


Coit Tower - 409 steps total


excited to climb the steps - step #1


Wondering how much longer we've got - step #203


nearly dead, burning thighs, huge regrets - step #360

Glad i did it....LOVED the (foggy and rainy) view from the top
of the tower!!!


So, for any of you wondering if you need a get-a-way....just DO IT!!!! best thing ever!!!!

Yeah for you guys! Good job. Our get-a-away is still in the planning stages but we are SO looking forward to it (and a little nervous to leave the kids)but way to take the plunge and give your friends the confidence they need to know they can do it too! Glad you guys had such a fun time!
