Where did you leave your heart?

San Francisco is fun!  There there are toy stores and live music and old prisons and parades and crazy people.  This is the first time we took our son to the city (Granny happily tagged along to stay in and order room service with our boy while we went to the Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings show!)  I have several pictures here in this post, but I will briefly explain them so it won't feel too muchness.
First, the toy store and the prison.  We loved both.  Grant thought that creepy baby was pretty funny. Alcatraz was pretty creepy and cool. They had a few cells made up so you can see how the prisoners lived.  Looks like it would suck pretty bad.
Later that night (Friday) We met up with Fay from FayFrisco who happened to have the evening off and just happened to live in the city and could join us for SJDK.  She has some really great photos from that night if you would like to see more! Fay is really really fun and super cool and we had a great time diving right in to all the getting to know ya stuff! Really cool new chick to check out if you have not already! 
Saturday morning I met with Fia from The Laundry Narrative and her husband and adorable little one!  They met me in the center of Union Square where we got tea and chatted about all kinds of things while her girl played and her husband alternated chasing her and snapping some great candid shots of the three of us (which will be on her blog soon if you would like to se more!)  Such a grounded and extremely stylish family! I also could not take my eyes of of her great vintage top! I was so happy to be able to meet them and hope to be able to spend more time getting to know Fia the next time I come to the city! 

Finally, the Exploratorium.  OK.  This place is absolutely amazing.  It is essentially a gigantic airplane hanger like building filled to the brim with science experiments!  We watched a real COW EYE dissection right in front of us (SO INTERESTING) and got to play with conductors and magnets and a million other things my inner geek has been dying to play with!  We went for my son, but it really is a cool experience for anyone. 

All right!  I think that sums up the weekend!

It really looks like a wonderful weekend! I love seeing your son in photos, he's so fun!!! And was it that cold there? You look cold but girl, how stunning those red boots are! So good!!! :)

It looks like such a fun time, especialy the Exploratorium! By the way, I really like your bag from the exploratorium pictures.

Lara said...

How fun! It looks like it was a great time. The Exploratorium looks fantastic. Anywhere where they dissect a cow eye is my kind of place. :) I am not so sure my husband would agree though.

I'm so jealous! I lived in SF last summer and definitely left a piece of my heart there. I never made it out to the Exploratorium, though I wanted to. There's so much to do in SF that I still have a list of stuff to do when I go back, despite living there for 2 months!

We went to the exploratorium on our honeymoon and my husband loved it so much I took him back a month ago to play more. I think it might be his favorite place in the world, haha.

I love science museums! I'm glad my niece is starting to get old enough to go to places like that!

Glad you all had a fun trip :) Love your boots too!

Was really nice to meet you! Maybe next time, I'll meet your son, too. He's a cutie.

Ooh, San Francisco! I was only there for two days last month, but in those two days I fell completely in love with the city. Although I'm also in love with a few other cities, so am a bit of a fickle city-whore.

Thank you so much for your kind comment - it means a lot. Am thrilled to have discovered your blog, too, and now check it every day. I love the way you see the world.
