San Francisco

A while ago, Southwest had some really cheap flights to San Francisco. Jared thought a couples trip would be a lot of fun so we bought tickets. Brian and Tashina, and Tony and Danell joined us. Jared and Brian left Thursday so they could go to the Seahawks game. The rest of us arrived early Friday morning. 
Our first stop was to the  Palace of Fine Arts

Tashina thought this looked like the perfect climbing tree. 
Right around the corner is Lucas Films. We visited the Yoda fountain and then walked around the lobby looking at Star Wars memorabilia. 

Golden Gate Bridge from the Presidio

Drove down to Muir Woods 

Another view of the bridge from the other side

Sutro Baths 
Palace of the Legion of Honor

We did the Half Moon Bay drive and stopped at Sam's for lunch. Apparently they have the best lobster roll so that is what we ordered for lunch. It was really good---as was the clam chowder (which they served to you in a bowl the size of a bathtub!)
Grace Cathedral
 The seals at Fishermans Wharf
We stayed in a house in a cute little neighborhood. This was a little market by the house. It was fun exploring...we found a yummy Mexican place that served great smoothies and a Mexican bakery.  
The rest of these pictures are from Danell and Tashina. We took a lot of selfies! I don't think I have ever been in so many vacation pictures in my life.  
At the Huskies game 
This is some guy who offered to take our picture. When we looked at the phone we had an awful lot of his picture. haha

Somewhere in China Town
Greek food for lunch
Doughnuts from Kara's Doughnuts 
Driving down Lombard Street
We saw a lot of pumpkin patches on our drive
On the last day, the guys got massages in China town and we got our nails done. This is the guys leaving the massage place. Danell and I ended up also getting a foot massage as well. 
Chinese food in China town right before coming home. 
 Last selfie on the plane
We had so much fun and are already planning our next trip. It was a nice little break from the kids (A HUGE thanks to Josh for watching the kids!)
