8 minutes at Crissy Field.

It was cold.  No, make that freezing.  It was windy.  Like all your hair in your face kind of windy.  And the kids were tired.  But with the help of my sister, we pulled off some fun family shots at the best location the city has to offer (in my opinion anyways).  Thanks to my sister for shooting this fast and furious session of us and making my vision come to life...

all around town.

Little Italy for dinner.  Lots and lots of walking.  Best way to see the city in my opinion.  Those hills are no joke!  San Francisco just never gets old.

downtown to Chinatown

First stop in San Francisco was high on everyone's priorities: Chinatown.  Lots of shopping, souveneirs, strange delicacies that we would consider household pets, colorful paper lanterns, and the fortune cookie factory.  There was something for everyone.

bags are packed...

not zipped.   but packed.  Avery wanted to get everything ready for San Francisco on her own this time.  She assured me, "I got it mom". 

I could hear her huffing and puffing down the hallway only to find her pressing her entire body weight on top of her suitcase in attempt to zip it.  She had packed enough to move to San Francisco, not to visit.

I took a closer peek at the contents inside and this is what I found:

7 rolled cardigans (first question: who taught her to roll her sweaters?  And are 7 necessary?)
4 pairs of skinny jeans
pillow pet
cowboy boots
2 pairs of house slippers
4 sets of flannel pajamas (is it Christmas already?)
17 bows/ barrettes/ flower headbands
a ziploc bag of pretzels (cause I'm sure those are rare up north!)
a wool peacoat (I'm sorry but does Antartica sound the same as San Francisco?)
6 sparkley belts (ya never know, she might have drastic weight loss and need help keeping her britches up)...
tennis shoes
ballet flats
gladiator sandals
and last but not least a fedora.

Did I mention we are only going for 3 days?

The funny thing is Hunter and Davin could have packed all of their belongings in one Target shopping bag and probably still had room to spare... BOYS!

rain boots in july

Can't beat the price.  $7.99.  Thank you very much Saver's.  Price tag says it all.

What's a girl to do when her brothers are at baseball camp and football conditioning?  Why not a pancake picnic in the park?  Avery was definitely in her happy place yesterday. And I didn't miss a second of it.  It was so refreshing to get behind the lense and, for once, not give a single second of direction. I did my best to keep up with my wild one...
