I Left My Heart in San Francisco

Josh and I recently returned from our vacation, and this year we traveled to San Francisco for four days. The weather took some getting used to, as the high was about 65 for the duration of our stay (minus our trip to Napa and Sonoma where the temperatures climbed to the upper 70's), but we packed appropriate clothing so we didn't mind the break from Iowa's heat and humidity. We took a lot of random touristy type photos, but I did want to share a few that I thought were worthy of the blog.

Some highlights of the trip were Alcatraz (so interesting!!), shopping on Union Street, dinner at various fabulous restaurants (The Tipsy Pig, The Slanted Door, and Murray Circle), The Bouchon Bakery in Yountville, Sausalito, Cavallo Point (an absolutely amazing hotel), riding a cable car, and various wineries in Napa and Sonoma.

Wandering through Alcatraz, I think this photo shows just how lonely that place feels...
A cute little alleyway in Sausalito (my favorite - I want to move there!!)
Grapes on the vine.
The gate at one of the wineries we visited (their Chardonnay was yummy!).
Lily pads on the pond at Nicholson Ranch winery.
The famous San Francisco fog!

Yesterday I traveled to Des Moines to meet Nicole and James' new addition....Oliver. He just turned 10 weeks old and was such a good little model! I had a great time meeting the entire family, and I hope they like their sneak peek!

I really love this one of Nicole with her little guy! I just think it's so sweet.

Oliver was getting a little fussy, so James put him in a magic hold that I've never seen before! He calmed right down, it was amazing.
