Still in CA, but coming home soon

Just a quick post to say we’ve been having a great time and finding LOTS to do (and good things to eat) in CA. The weather was rainy today, but the rest of the time it was just gorgeous so I can’t complain.

The only thing I really feel justified to complain about is that someone almost hit us as we were crossing the street in Little Italy tonight. The car literally came within a couple inches of Ava’s stroller and my leg. It is seriously scary to think about the what ifs. Thankfully we were fine, just a little shook up.

I’ve been writing down what we do each day so I can post it all (along with some pics) when we get back, because I just haven’t had the time to check in while we’ve been here. Plus there were a couple days we were without an internet connection (*gasp*).

It’s our last night (Sunday) in San Francisco. Tomorrow we head back to San Jose and, in the evening, we fly back to Denver.

It’s been a nice getaway and California is lovely, but it will be good to get home too. 🙂

Vacation all I ever wanted

We’re planning a little vacation to California to coincide with one of Jody’s business trips, two weeks hence! We’ll spend a couple days in the San Jose/Mountain View area while Jody works at Google, then we’re heading to San Francisco to spend a few more days of actual vacation time seeing the sights. 🙂

I’ve never been to San Francisco or California at all, so I’m really looking forward to it.

I just booked our hotel in the heart of downtown San Francisco. It’s definitely not cheap, but then, I figure this is the last vacation we will be taking for a while and we might as well have nice digs. 😉 It’s a four-star hotel, but I did get a discount using Expedia.

The great thing about going along with a business trip is we don’t have to pay for Jody’s airfare, just mine, since Ava still flies free for another month and a half! And the first few nights of our stay will be free since Jody will be working.

I know there are tons and tons of things to do in the area, but if you have been there (or live there) and have any suggestions for us, let me know. 🙂 I think our hotel is right by the Yerba Buena Gardens so that might be fun for Ava. And of course we’ll have to go down to the Fishermen’s Wharf and do the touristy thing of riding the trolley cars.

I’m hoping I’ll be over the first trimester tireds by then. I’ll be 14 weeks. But since we’ll probably have to take a break half-way through our days so Ava can nap, I should be fine either way. 🙂 I do so enjoy my afternoon naps these days.
