we are back from san francisco and already missing it! we all came home with a little sun on our noses and cheeks which has been a nice reminder of what is around the corner (warm weather! we hope!) since it snowed all night here in new york city.
this trip felt very quick. josh and i spent the majority of our time in meetings thursday and friday, but we still tried to see a few friends and do a few fun things as a family over the weekend. i’d like to think our little ones are great travelers, but the plane ride over was unfortunately pretty rocky. we landed early and had to sit on the plane for 45 minutes on the runway in SF around 2AM our time… and poor samson wasn’t feeling it at that point. you know how that cabin pressure can feel on your ears… then add teething on top of it, i think the poor mister hated everyone and everything at that point. there was a lot of rubbing of the back, trying to get him to nurse and apologizing to fellow passengers around us who kept giving us that look you tend to get as a parent when someone is annoyed with you. (please tell me i’m not the only one who gets that look.)
besides the plane incident, the kids were troopers! we all somehow snuck in 9 hours of straight sleep one night in the hotel (WHICH HAS NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE…. EVER!) and enjoyed our time together in sunny california.
^^^the painted ladies! and a picnic with friends…^^^
^^^the trolleys are fully responsible for my obsession with san francisco. i mean, trolleys!^^^
^^^breakfast at craftsman and wolves. and eleanor’s “cheese” face posing with our big ice cream cone!^^^
^^^cutest mister samson. also, babies in hoodies. i cannot get enough.^^^
^^^feeding the ducks with friends and hanging out at the palace of fine arts…^^^
^^^dolores part! that slide is perfection (HERE’s a video of E going down all by herself). in-n-out, um, HELLO! and samson stealing eleanor’s spoonful of ice cream. sometimes you forget about a baby’s strong grip and reach. also, his name is samson.^^^
^^^we got to see one of our favorite people in the world, ms casey, on saturday morning. casey is so talented, but also the most genuine of the bunch. love her. so grateful this online world has brought us together.^^^
^^^sticking a daisy from the park in her hair… and making a mess in jordan’s studio!^^^
^^^this is what arriving at 2AM NYC time looks like… we lost one of E’s pigtails and samson was over his shoes, but we made it! ^^^
^^^ hanging out with our friend joy, who we are working with on our new project! joy is so much fun. she makes all those long conference calls and meetings exciting! so thrilled to see all of our hard work coming together!^^^
until next time, san francisco! xoxo
ps– a few more videos we made with the vine app (crossing the golden gate bridge, eleanor and mama at the palace of fine arts, my family just hanging out after dinner, and there are ducks in our hotel room!?)
all photos were taken on our iphones. and edited with the vsco cam app.
