San Fran trip

Dan and I took a little trip to San Fransicso a couple weekends ago to celebrate our 3-year anniversary and my 30th birthday. It was a really fun trip. We packed it in and managed to see alot, even though we slept in everyday and made time to relax. We were prepared for pretty cold weather (from the forecast) but it was actually really nice--blue sky and sunshine everyday, which was such a nice surprise! Of course it was super chilly at night and anytime we were by the water, but that was expected. Anyway, we had such a great time!
Here are some of the highlights....

-The Golden Gate Bridge, of course! (And watching the crazy surfers and wind surfers)


-Eating dinner at Great Eastern in China Town (So tasty!)


-Breakfast at the open air market on the embarcadero Saturday morning
(Here's the belly you all keep asking about!)


-Taking the cable car to Pier 39/Fisherman's Wharf and eating amazing seafood at the Crabhouse

-Delicious gelato from the place right next door to our hotel!

-San Fran shopping, of course!
(Thought it's just not the same when you're shopping for maternity clothes!)

The shopping highlight was definitely the real Louis Vuitton sunglasses we got for just $5.00! I made Dan do Ben Stiller's "Blue Steal" with me in our new shades!


-Breakfast at Lori's diner in Union Square

-Oakland A's game with Dan's cousin Tim (and a great dinner at a gourmet burger joint in Oakland with Tim and his girlfriend, Melissa)

When you guys have fun, you really have fun. I think that would be a fun trip to take one of these years. I think I've seen the San Fran Bridge from an airplane. Your little bump is so cute Holly! I'm so happy for you!

Aw, that looks fun! Enjoy your time alone together while you can, it has been years since Cory and I have been able to go away alone together, and don't get me wrong, family vacations are so much fun and I love it, but sometimes, I want a little alone time with my man! So anyway, you guys look like you had a great time, and I love the belly pic, and I can't wait to see you guys this summer and I hope you have baby Dixon while we are there. The end.
