Photo Dump

Just thought I'd finally post some of these pictures just from day to day activities and just when I see the girls being too ute not to snap a picture.

Alamo Square Park

Instead of our usual lazy Sunday like usual, and since it was back up to our normal cool and comfortable 60 degrees here, we decided to head out and explore. We decided to go to Alamo Square Park, which is also referred to as Postcard Row since that is where they take all those pictures that you see of the "painted ladies" on postcards. It is also made famous by Full House, a show that I have watched since I was little and that I still watch, everytime it comes on. None of these are the actual Full House "house"--that one is on 1709 Broderick Street that I hope to visit but this is the park that they are picnicing at during their intro song. It was a clear day so the city in the backdrop was very visible and it was just so beautiful! The park is pretty big and sits up on a hill but it wasn't crowded at all and very laid back. We even had live music as a guy was playing his guitar underneath a tree. Some people were sprawled out on the big lawn napping, reading, or enjoying a picnic and I hope to be able to do that but I don't see that in my near future with two toddlers running around! They sure loved it and were running like crazy everywhere! I am lucky to have gotten these pictures and as you can see in some, they weren't all too happy about sitting still when there were so many things to explore. We walked around for a while and then headed back home. I definitely want to go again as I hear the sunsets are amazing and a picnic sounds so fun. It was suprisingly quiet up there despite it being right in the middle of the city.I don't know if it was because we were up on a hill or because it is an unusually quiet part of the city. I actually couldn't even tell I was in a city as there were so many trees and trails but yet when you reached the edge of the hill, you noticed that you were in a huge city with buildings all around, trolleys, BART, everything. It was so cool. Here are some pictures from our little trip!
