San Francisco

I can talk about San Francisco in at least five posts. Lucky for you, I'll keep it at one (maybe two). I expected this city to be amazing. It exceeded my expectations, and we were there for only 48 hours. I already want to go back this very second.

• Pizzeria Delfina - get two pizzas, eat both.
• Zazie's for breakfast - particularly their Challah French Toast
• Gott's Roadside - cheeseburger with a side of sweet potato fries AND onion rings
• Sausolito Taco Shop - William said these were the best tacos he's had since his mission in Mexico.
• Salted Caramel Ice Cream from Bi-Rite (I cannot emphasize this one enough.)

• Bike the bridge
• The Ferry Building on a Farmer's Market Day and sample EVERYTHING
• Trolley Ride to Union Square
• Ride a boat around the Bay
• Muir Woods

A Day of Laziness and Close Calls.

(My Dback hot dog (they lost) and the only Fourth of July decor in my house was a drawing of fireworks on our chalkboard.)

Our 4th was pretty spectacular, to say the least. Of course, I planned several things to do on William's day off. But plans changed after we went to Walmart and Barros, then took a very long nap (because nothing says 'America' like Walmart, pizza, and laziness). 

This was probably the most exciting thing that happened for June:

Probably the best fifty cents we've ever spent.

Lucky for us, my mom planned a great evening of hot dogs, chips and salsa, pies, cupcakes, neighborhood rides (the weather was a m a z i n g, right?), and of course fireworks. 

June clapped after each firework. It was the best. 

We also had a horrifying moment when we lit what was supposed to be a "tame" firework. Instead of peacefully spinning itself on the ground, it flew up, barely missing the top of our heads, and went over the neighbor's house. 

My life flashed before my eyes and all I saw were delicious hot dogs.

And of course, June applauded.
