The rest of the days were followed by the normal San Fransisco tourist things:
The Bay Bridge
Sea Lions at Pier 39
Arm wrestling at the Musée Mécanique - Fisherman's Wharf
a run across the Golden Gate Bridge
and of course, the Full House houseI also had some nice pampering time of a 90 minute massage and my make-up being professional done for a black tie event for my husband's work:Although you may not see any pics of my husband above (at his request), he was with me on most of my tourist escapades. We had a wonderful time and it was great to spend so much time with him. We came back to an even bigger little boy then when we left! I can't believe how much he grew in the five days while we were gone! He can now go up and down steps, he attempts to walk holding onto things even more, and has gained so much interest in animals. It was a good time for him to spend time with his Grandparents and I am sure they had a wonderful time making memories with him.
We both missed our little guy very much. We each called every day while gone, but overall I think we both really enjoyed the time together. You forget when you add kids to the marriage mix that it's important to make time for just you and your spouse. We have gotten so good at bending our activities to fit our son's schedule that it was a nice break for us to do whatever we wanted, eat wherever we wanted, stay out as late as we wanted, and really just spend some good quality time together. After all, the best gift you can give your child is a healthy, happy mom and dad who are committed to each other and committed to being the best parents we can be.
