hi ho. hi ho...

It was off to the ticker tape parade we'd go.  San Francisco Giants.  World Champions.  My dad's favorite team since he was a kid growing up in the city.  He had been waiting for this since 1958.

Turn around trip... me and him surprising my sister Lisa.  One day only   Up and back.  Playing hookie.  Joining the hundreds of thousands of crazed fans amidst a sea of orange and black.  The fans were like one big happy family that day.  There will never be another day like this one in the city.  Celebrations everywhere we turned.  I will never forget it.





 the parade.



 the aftermath.

 the stadium. (where we happened to be at the right place at the right time when the team returned by bus loads.) 
 THE brick!
 celebrating!

Unforgettable.

That is amazing! How fun! My Gracie had a fever on Wenesday so I kept her home but forgot to call her school, and when the secretary called me she said she assumed we had all taken the day off of school and work to go to SF for the parade! I WISH!!! Yay Giants! So cool you got to share that with your dad and sister!

Memories look amazing, but what I want to know--what are you doing to get those cut arms and that beautiful figure?!! You look perfect, Sara! Great photos of you and your dad/sister. I'm glad the Giants won--have some friends who just moved to SF.

Both of us are daddy's girls as I can see. Coincidentally, I spent the weekend with my daddy in Las Vegas. These are the moments to remember :)

I just moved to San Francisco, and it was such a joyous week, the week the Giants won!

I look forward to being another excited fan next season!
