To San Francisco!

We headed to San Francisco this week for Ruby to meet her Great Grandma Joan and for my birthday. It was tons of fun! This picture is the view of the city from Alcatraz Island. As you can see we had gorgeous weather. Ruby did really well, but she definitely got tired of being in her carseat. We headed down to my parents' house on Sunday after church, then to San Fran on Monday morning. We spent Tuesday there, then headed back on Wednesday to my parents' house again, and home today. Here are a bunch of pictures from this week and our trip.
 Ruby loves buttons, so the car knobs are lots of fun.
 We went on a walk in the rain on Friday. Thank goodness for rain covers!
 Uh-oh! Ruby made a nice mess :)
 "Helping" Mommy pack.
 Playing with her cousin Lia. She's really good at saying "Lia" too.
 Hanging out during Mommy's birthday party. She was playing the piano too.
With her cousins Quin and Lia.

 Napping on the way to San Francisco.
 We brought lots of toys to keep her occupied.
A break from the car.
 Our hotel was two blocks away from a very fun park!
We finally fit in! 
 Teeter totter with Daddy.
 She had fun chasing the pigeon.
 We ate dinner at Mission Chinese Food. The beef cheeks were a little bit spicy, so she wanted her "wadi" after she tasted it.
 
Good morning!
 Story time with Daddy.
Yum! 
 On our way to Alcatraz. It was a little windy! :) We decided to walk from our hotel to the pier, but we were running a little late, so we literally had to run a lot of the two miles. We made it just in time to catch our boat!
 Love.
 Having fun at Alcatraz.

 Ruby got very fussy, so Andy strapped her on and she took a nice nap.
 Meeting Great Grandma Joan.
 We went to Aunt Terry's house for dinner, where Ruby met her second cousin Josiah.
 She kept going in and out this little house at Aunt Terry's.
 For my birthday we went to a popular breakfast place where we had to wait in line for about an hour. Andy was in line while Ruby and I went next door to the park to swing. He's such a good man. :)
 Next was the baseball game. Go Giants!
Ruby liked watching the team. They won 10-0 against the Rockies! It was a fun game.

 We had dinner at Chick-fil-A. Ruby's getting really good with a straw.
 On the way home today at Grandma's house going out to see Snofie and the garden.
