San Francisco

The days leading up to my mom leaving California, Tyson and I both knew I was going to need more help.  I was so grateful when Tyson offered to fly my sister out here, to be with me for ten days.  It meant the world to me to have Kiersten come.

Fresno just happens to be one of the most expensive airports to fly in and out of, which often times leads us to finding flights out of surrounding airports.  Tyson found a great deal on a flight going to Oakland.  It was too good to pass up, unfortunately it is about three hours away.  Tyson asked if I was up for a road trip.  I couldn't turn down a day to get out of the house, even if it was just be in the car.  Tyson reminded me that San Francisco happens to only be thirty minutes away from Oakland, so we decided to make a day out of it.

I have only been to San Francisco twice, both times were spent in the Financial District and by Fisherman's Wharf.  When Tyson said we could go shopping, I jumped all over the idea.  We loaded up the kids and were on our way.  

Both girls did amazing, even with the no nap and stroller for P.  We realized a little too late that we didn't have the attachments needed for the double stroller.  I think P was in heaven just being out of the house.  She had a slight obsession with walking onto the window displays in every store.  She was a crack up at Old Navy.  She had everyone laughing and smiling at her.  Her outfit even matched the mannequin.  It was adorable!

Another bonus of the day was being able to see our friends Aaron and Angelica.  They happened to be moving back to Sacramento the very next day.  We were happy to get to see them before they moved.  We grabbed a yummy lunch together and remained about our time together in New York.  

I scored myself a new pair of boots and the comfiest cardigan.  I have a thing for grandma sweaters.  Ty says I have too many, but I disagree.  One can never have too many grandma sweaters.  Even though I happen to live in one of the hottest climates, I look forward to fall and being able to strut my wool.  We had fun picking out P a new fall wardrobe.  As much as I like shopping for myself, I LOVE shopping for my girls.  

We spent the entire afternoon and evening shopping.  To say we were spent was an understatement.  I am just grateful we made it back in one piece.  I am not sure it was the smartest idea to take two kiddos out shopping all day, while trying to recover from a c-section, but it was totally worth the exhaustion.
