San Fransisco

Again.....there are A TON of pictures here. As there will be for Monterey. That's just how it is. :) And again, I will let the pictures tell the story of our trip, starting with our arrival in San Fran!
Bathing Babies!
Hopie did not appreciate Declan's splashing....
Or Gemma stretching out.

D taking a walk with Daddy on Pier 39.

Carousel take 2! MUCH nicer this time! No balancing needed! :)

Declan was on a dolphin.
Gemma was on a panda.

And Hopie was also on a dolphin. I love this pic of Danny!

I know his face is covered, but he's actually smiling in this one!
The fam with Alcatraz.

D and the seals....or sea lions...I don't know. Ok, just looked it up. They're sea lions.

I wanted a shot of him and the sea lions with him facing the camera. He didn't want to face the camera.

On our way to lunch we got some fruit for Dec: a mango, strawberries, peaches. It was the first time for the mango and he LOVED it! Yeah!!

Hanging out at Ghirardelli Square, enjoying the flower potts.

with Gemma...

and Hope!

Off in search of lady to give flowers to.

"Where are all the ladies at?"
"I guess you can have it mom."

Ok, Trevor is not trying to lower Declan into the fountain, as that is what it looks like he is doing. Declan was actually trying to step into the water (something his daddy did at a young age himself) and Trevor is pulling him back up. Like father, like son.

Check out that loooooooong string of drool going down Trevor's back! Yeah teething.

A little blurry, but SUPER cute!

Hopie and Gemma touching the water, something Hope HAD to do! :)

Daddies and daughters.

Trolley time!

Hopie channeling Auntie Becky from the mid-eighties. (I also had chocolate ice cream ALL OVER my face when I was young and in San Fran.)

Looking down the steps from our second floor rental....

and looking up from the street. Yes, it was THAT steep!

The kiddies hanging out on our last morning in the rental. It was a REALLY nice place with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, a super nice updated kitchen. The linens were wonderful, the place was spacious. We could close the kids into the living room and dinning room and let them (kinda) run free to play. There was a TV and DVD player, so "Happy Feet" was on the whole time we were there. I would TOTALLY stay there again!

Declan and Hopie playing under the dinning room table. They had fun bonking their heads on the glass. Kids are weird. :)

More playing...

I don't know what they were doing, but don't they both look like little models?!

The typical shot of going down a steep San Fransisco street. It looks crazier in person though.
Declan didn't really care much for the steep hills. Actually, this is how he felt about being in the car seat period.
Golden Gate Bridge

RUBY!! :)

Yeah, this freaked me out a bit, I had to turn away.

Family pic on the Bridge.

Dec with the Bridge.

Lunch at Golden Gate Park.

Gemma hanging out at Twin Peaks.
