So fantastic! It is completely tiled with these itty bitty tiles. The whole hotel was beautiful, and we would have had a terrific view of San Francisco but it was so rainy that we couldn't even see the Bay. We had planned to take a ferry and bike around Angel Island, but as we couldn't even see Angel Island, we spent a lot of time lazily reading and eating bread from Acme:
Oh, my. Rats. Now I am hungry for Acme, and believe me, there is nothing remotely close to it here in San Antonio. But we DO have... um... fruit cups? Paletas? Mexican food--we have A LOT of Mexican food.
The girls had fun picking oranges with Grandpa:
And we had a good time at the Mrs. Grossman's sticker factory in Petaluma:
We also got to spend time with some of our best friends. Dinner and games with the Browns is always a good time. If they HAD to leave San Antonio (and they did have to--the Air Force said so), I am so grateful that they moved to Northern California where we can still see them:
I also got to see me best friends from high school, Maureen and Kendra, and meet their newest little girls. It stinks to be so far away, but we've got ties that bind, baby! Natalie took this picture for us:
