A few weeks ago I went on a California Adventure!
Our friends Steph and Brian joined us across the United States~
to visit San Francisco, the place our friend Cara calls home.
It was a 3-night, whirlwind trip of pure fun.
Below, our trip in a nutshell:)...
We spent all day Friday exploring the city.
We started with brunch at Little Griddle (incredibly delicious) and then headed to
The Painted Ladies,
aka the Full House house.
We reminisced about Joey and his cut-it-outs, and then walked through Haight Ashbury and caught a taxi to Fisherman's Wharf.
After a small bout of cab-sickness (and the genius purchase of Tums),
we were up and at 'em again, soaking up the sunshine along the water.
Next we found the sea lions, and we may or may not have observed them for a good 45 minutes.
And imitated them all.
Using different voices.
We also grabbed snacks at a seafood stand and ate lunch with the seagulls.
That evening we went out on the town and got a taste of the San Francisco nightlife.
We had appetizers at a Belgian bistro called La Trappe,
and dinner at Tony's Pizza in North Beach.
Both were awesome.
The next morning, after another brunch from Little Griddle (obsessed),
it was off to wine country in our rented Crown Victoria.
We spent Saturday and Sunday in Sonoma and Napa.
We visited 5 vineyards and a brewery and I loved every single second!
Late Sunday night it was back to Virginia, with a full heart and a great big smile.
What a wonderful weekend!
