I hope you haven't felt neglected. I thought about you often, and now dear friends I am back, grateful that you are too! The schedule has been filling up here at our house, which means summer must be nearly here! We had Steve's brother and family stay with us this weekend which was lots of fun. We had to drop them off at the San Francisco airport and instead of just a drop and go we decided to make a day of it...kid free!
With the thrill of the spur of the moment date in the city we decided to do something we've been wanting to do but couldn't easily do with the kids...we decided to visit Alcatraz! Unfortunately Alcatraz is not a spur of the moment trip and you must book in advance, so we did the next best thing...we just followed our feet...
First stop, Fisherman's Wharf for some much loved Clam Chowder in a fresh sour dough bread bowl...

mmmmmm carbs!
after that, a short walk to Pier 39 for some coffee and mini donuts (I'm hooked since my sis introduced me!)...

Then a hop onto the cable car in which Steve would not let me hang from the side (don't worry I got to on the ride back)...
Some light shopping in Union Square (I left my heart in American Apparel!)
and finally a stroll through China Town...

and home in time for dinner...thus making it a wonderful day date! BAM!

Today's Reflection:
What a blessing it was to just make a day of it. Sometimes Steve and I don't get the chance to make time for each other, who knew dropping family members off at the airport could result in such a great date. Sometimes you have to take whatever opportunity you get and make the best of it. Lord, thank you for every opportunity you give us.
"You will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country."
-Deuteronomy 28:3
