Sorry I went MIA on you yesterday, but it was a busy day and I was exhausted so sleep > blog.
Anyways, we’re home now, and as much fun as I had, I’m looking forward to quality sleep again. How did I ever do those newborn days?!
Let me tell you about one of my favorite days of the whole trip! On Tuesday morning, we drove up to San Francisco to meet up with my best girlfriend from college, Rachel. I can’t tell you how excited I was to see her and for her to meet Hunter for the first time!
It really was the best day ever. The weather was perfect – sunny and clear, a nice breeze, and not too cold, but not too hot either. Rachel did an excellent job at being our tour guide for the day. We didn’t have a ton of time since we wanted to get back to her place up in the Sacramento area before rush hour hit, so we mostly stayed near Pier 39 and Ghiradelli Square.
We spent some time watching the seals off the pier. They are so hilarious!
Hunter loved them too. <3
We decided to go to Boudin’s for lunch. They are famous for their sourdough bread, so it was a must. I got clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl with a side salad. It was everything I dreamed of and more.
Hunter has never experienced the Pacific Ocean so it was mandatory that his little feet touch it.
He, however, was not a fan! I guess I don’t blame him – it was pretty cold.
That little guy is just too much fun.
Last but not least, we hit up Ghiradelli Square. I was still stuffed from lunch, but obviously I couldn’t miss out on Ghiradelli Square. Rachel and I decided to just grab a shake since their sundaes are ridiculously massive. I know, it’s kind of wrong that I didn’t get anything chocolate while I was at Ghiradelli Square, but a vanilla shake just sounded good to me at the time.
Shortly after that, we decided we should start heading up to Sacramento to avoid some of the rush hour traffic. A highlight of the drive was going across the Golden Gate Bridge!
Rachel graciously offered to let us stay at her house, so we stayed there for the night. She totally spoiled us and made us dinner, breakfast the following morning, and gave us some snacks for the road.
She really is the best friend a girl could ask for! I love her so much and miss her already.
It was a fun little California trip, and I’m so glad we were able to fit in so much for such a short amount of time. I’ve already decided I’m taking Cody back to the Bay Area to explore more – it’s such a fun city!
Anyways, I feel like my to-do list is a million miles long at the moment, so I need to jet!
Have a great day!
P.S. Now that it’s officially October, don’t forget to join in on my October Fruit & Vegges Challenge!
