San Francisco Recap

We are back from San Fran and boy did we have fun! Because it was a work trip for David we had an expense account to use for all of our meals and travel. It is pretty nice having a car service pick you up from the airport and ordering bottles of wine and dessert every night. Of course we over indulged and I think I gained 10 pounds. I pretty much walked the entire city though so I am hoping that evened it out! Anyways here are a ton of pictures of our trip.

Thursday we arrived in San Fran and changed and went to a wine bar for happy hour. They had the best prosciutto flatbread and baked brie! Then we went to dinner at an Italian place called Perbacco. It was very fancy and delicious food. After dinner we walked along the water and stopped to have some drinks at a small bar. This is the ferry building at night.

Friday, I did some shopping on my own while Dave was working and then we headed out to tour the town. 
We walked through Chinatown. 
 Visited pier 39 and had a great view of Alcatraz as well as the Golden Gate bridge. My favorite part was the seals though!

We took pics on a cable car. 
Visited Lombard street with one of the most crooked roads in the country. 

 Had some drinks in the original Rogue brewery and walked through Little Italy to get back to our hotel to get ready for dinner. 
We stuffed ourselves with meat at a Brazilian steakhouse for dinner and then walked around the SOMA and Mission districts stopping occasionally to have drinks at different places. 

Saturday we visited the Ferry building's farmers market (I so wish we had something like this is JAX!) 
 We ate lunch in Chinatown. Then we walked along the bay to Fisherman's wharf and the Ghiradelli factory. 
 We took a bus to the Golden Gate bridge and walked out to the middle of the bridge which was very cool.(very windy!)

 We went to happy hour at a Irish bar, feasted at an traditional Italian restaurant where all the servers were family, and then watched some fireworks off of pier 39.
We headed back to the hotel around 10 and took the red eye home. We had a fantastic time, but were so anxious to see Delainey! This was the longest I have ever been away from her! We were greeted with her yelling Mama and Dada and jumping up and down! I mean how could you resist this face :)
We had a great time! I would also like to give a shout out to all the people who made this trip possible! We could not have made this happen without my parents and Dave's parents watching D for the weekend. Especially Dad who took off work on Thursday to play with Delainey at the zoo! You guys are the best and we love you!
