We’re back for another month of What ___ Looks Like, and I chose to spotlight our recent trip to San Francisco. This was Brooks first visit to the City and we loved every minute of it.
Please make sure you continue on with the group by heading over to my dear, sweet friend, Amy Grace | a beautiful life photo.
Stunning views. Belly laughs. And delicious food. That is only the beginning to describe our amazing weekend in San Francisco last month. I loved how giddy with excitement you were to just be at the airport, however we both decided that the San Diego airport was an embarrassment compared to San Francisco’s airport. You were so excited for our return flight, just so you could do a little shopping … the candy store was to be your first stop.
We stumbled upon Scala’s Bistro for lunch while we were waiting for our room to be ready. You were thrilled with the sparkling lemonade and the best bread I think you’ve ever had. This was just the first of many delicious meals during our stay.
Soon after we checked in, we raced back downstairs to wait for Wendy and Will. The four of us took off for Pier 39 to see the sites like a true tourist.
When we had our fill of the Pier, we ended up at Golden Gate Park. One look at this tree and both you and Will were happy boys.
This was our view from our private breakfast room at the Grand Hyatt. We felt so spoiled by all the great food and the incredible view.
Our only plans for Sunday was a trip to the Academy of Sciences at Golden Gate Park. I was so impressed with this place … wish we had one in San Diego. So many incredible animals and exhibits. These are only some of our favorites … I have so much more.
A morning and evening shot from our room.
Before we went in search of the cable cars, we came back to the room for a quick rest. You weren’t all that into taking a nap (even though you only got 7 hours of sleep) so you thought bed jumping was much more fun. In between jumping from bed to bed, you stopped every now and then to let me take a few pictures.
Off to the cable cars …
Before we took off for our biking adventure on Monday, we took a few more minutes taking advantage of the gorgeous light in our room.
Even though it had been countless years since I’d been on a bike, we decided we wanted to rent bikes and head across the Golden Gate. It was one of the best days that we have ever had. I promise once the chemo treatments are over, I’ll buy a bike for myself.
I LOVED watching you ride across the bridge with such joy and confidence. Watching your jacket flap in the wind just made me smile.
Once across the bridge, we ended up in Salsalito at the height of herring season. The coastline was buzzing with fishing boats and birds. After lunch we hopped on the ferry which took us back across the bay to San Francisco.
Once we got back into the airport, you went straight to the candy store and grabbed a giant bag of sour candy … it didn’t even last to the start of the flight.
We are such great travel partners. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience for both of us. I hope you will look back on these images and remember the incredible time we had.
I love you to the moon and back!
