Chasing Davies: Fun in California

Fun in California

A week and a half ago, we spent a long weekend in northern California.  We've been there many times before to visit family, but this time with a toddler in toe was different than past trips.  We certainly had fun and it was great to see our loved ones, but boy I was exhausted once I got home! Here are a few photos from our time in San Francisco, including a day trip to Santa Cruz and a FIVE generation photo with some of my fam (rare these days!).

a family the swings together.... Having a park near where we were staying was key to Liam's (and therefore, our) sanity!

Ok, this is not San Francisco - we took a day trip to Santa Cruz for some overwhelming boardwalk action, ice cream & Liam's first carousel ride!  It was a beautiful day to be outside and while the ocean was way to cold to dip more than a toe, it was fun to walk on the beach and hear the waves.

The wharf is one of my favorite parts of San Fran!  My CA family indulges my request for Scoma's (on pier 47) every time I visit.  This time even greater, because we had 15 people so got a separate room that overlooked the ocean.
Last time I was visiting family in California, we got our first five generation photo. So we got an updated one! 

And no trip is complete without a stop at In-N-Out Burger for a hamburger and shake. Liam even got his first one!
