Once again, we head to San Francisco with our Grandsons for some Spring Break fun! We were lucky this year to have 3 days of beautiful weather tucked in-between Spring showers. There are so many things to do in San Francisco and we begin this trip with visiting Golden Gate Park. Our first adventure is […] Read more…

Wow, September has come and gone so quickly! We’re one week into October and I’m finally getting around to wrapping up the little bits of fun we had during this past month. Some day I’ll actually post about my “weekday” schedule including work and what I do each day when I head to the office, but […] Read more…

San Francisco Spring Break

San Francisco – City by the Bay -The City – whatever you call it, I’m sure you’ll agree it is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. We are so lucky to live close to such an amazing place and also lucky we were able to spend 3 days there recently with the monkeys […] Read more…

Bikin’ in Healdsburg and Sonoma

Last week, we headed up to Healdsburg in Sonoma County to join some friends for a couple of days of wine country fun – which included a gorgeous 30 mile bike ride through the area! Part of our motivation for choosing this time of year to all get together was to celebrate the birthdays of […] Read more…

Cruisin’ Day 2

On to Day 2 of our Cruise…actually, this is so much fun posting weeks later, not that it’s been fun being under the weather, but it’s fun re-living our cruise again now through these photos. Day 2 began, well, with food of course…but then we were on to checking out more of the ship – […] Read more…

Family Cruisin’

Hello!!! I’m back…well, at least I hope so. Where’ve I been…well, in a nutshell – sick, on a cruise, touring Vancouver Island and well, then sick again. Alas, I’m hopefully on the mend now…fingers crossed. At least well enough to take the time to view all my trip photographs and to start posting about our […] Read more…

Biking Fun in San Francisco

So, lately I’ve been a little bit obsessed with cycling. Well, maybe not a little bit…but rather a big bit! Years ago, Pops and I used to ride a tandem together – ride a whole lot actually – as in over 1,000 miles one year. We also took a bike tour and rode across Italy […] Read more…

I Left My Heart….SF

Just some FUN Friday photos today from our day hanging out in San Francisco with the monkeys. I’m still organizing the pictures of the boys goofing off around Fisherman’s Wharf with us. So, today, I’m just posting some scenic pics that I’ve been playing with taken from the bay cruise we went on. City Skyline […] Read more…

Yes, I spotted an Elf!

I’m hoping everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving! Truthfully, I’m still enjoying my Tofurky-Day time off as my mom is here visiting for a couple more days. Just to be sure you didn’t think I wasn’t posting because of some food coma injury, I thought I’d check in and post PROOF that the holidays have really […] Read more…

Winter Weekend in San Francisco

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!! Though the “big” fun we had this weekend had nothing to do with watching the big game, I hope all of you are having fun cheering for your favorite team – hopefully with a big crew of friends and lots of high calorie snacks. Our “big” fun this weekend was heading […] Read more…

Unfocused Fridays – Coffee or Tea

First, let me state, the title of this post is somewhat misleading seeing as I’m not opposed to either coffee or tea. Also, this is the first post that I’m including the words “Unfocused Friday” in the title. I thought it would be fun to share something random on Fridays (though at times it may […] Read more…
