Every year we do a big girls trip to San Francisco with a bunch of the girls in my family. The ages generally range from about 10 to 85. You wouldn’t think it would be that exciting but it’s the trip I look forward to every year. This year Kallie got to come with me! It was her first time on an airplane and as it got closer, I got pretty nervous for how it would be. To make matters worse, she has had a chronic sickness for like 5 months, and got tubes the morning of the day we left. She’s a trooper. Luckily she slept the whole flight there. Best baby.
Our first day there was jam-packed. We went to Sausalito and it was so much fun! It’s such a cute little town. We ate at a yummy burger place called Napa Valley Burger (http://www.napavalleyburgercompany.com). Kallie loved the slice of cheese they brought out for her and she slept like a champ on the fairy over. We had our first experience with Uber there and it was a little shaky (with 12 people) but we finally seemed to be able to figure it out. From there we went to the Golden Gate Bridge and the sun was shining the whole time! It was gorgeous. From the bridge we caught a bus on over to Ghirardelli and indulged in all the goodness. By that time, we were totally worn out and just went back to the room and laughed the rest of the night. Kallie was just an entertainer and loved being the center of attention for all of these girls who just ate her up.
The next three days can be summed up in two words: eating and shopping. But for real. We went to Mr. Holmes Bakehouse one morning in search for the infamous Cruffin. We got there 30 minutes before it opened only to find out the oven was broken. Jokes on us. We still had their amazing donuts but I was not pleased with our loss (#firstworldproblems). Our last morning there we ate at this adorable and delicious breakfast place called Mymy (not to be confused with Mamas, which was closed that day). We got a smorgasbord of food but my favorite was hands down the lemon ricotta pancakes. I’m salivating just thinking of them.
The flight home I think Kallie snorted caffeine because she was EVERYWHERE. I had never been more happy to hear the wheels and landing gear release and to finally be off of that airplane. Overall, she was awesome the whole trip but we were both ready to get home to Josh. She took 2 hour naps in her stroller everyday and was just another one of the girls along for the fun with us! Here’s to many more years to come!
How have your travel experience with your littles been?? Any tricks?
