10 Crazy, Lovely Years

Usually anniversaries are not a huge deal to us. We'll go out to dinner and maybe a movie if we feel the kids will be nice. This year was different, we celebrated ten years of marriage. We both wanted to do something special and were also in need of some serious r and r. Dan has been in the clinic the past couple of months and being a stay at home mom, I can always use a little break. So in June I booked us a weekend getaway to San Fransisco, and San Fran did not disappoint! I can only speak for myself here, but it was one of the best times I've ever had! A whole weekend of talking, not counting calories, exploring the city, and hanging out with some great friends. My parents were able to come down and watch the kids, so Dan took Friday off from the clinic and we were there by one. The first day we were there we walked from our Hotel in Union Square to the piers and pretty much ate the whole time. Dan loved sampling a lot of food in China Town, I was a little leery not quite knowing what I was eating, but Dan is a pretty adventurous eater, so if there happened to be a line somewhere he figured it must be because the food was good.

Fisherman's Warf was okay, not nearly as great as I remember it being as a kid, so we moved on to Coit Tower. Five dollars to the top and the views were worth every penny.

The Tanner's, The Freedman's and The Nelson's. It was a Harvard Ave. reunion. We all lived on the same street in Salt Lake. So glad we could hang out! Thanks JT for driving us all over.

Sunday, before our flight we caught the ferry over to Sausalito, it was incredible.
