Yesterday was a rest day for me. J had preschool and since it’s December I had a lot of errands to run and it was bliss to be able to get it all done without J to bribe the whole time haha
The rest of the day I was stuffing Christmas cards. Is it weird that Christmas cards make me feel like such an adult? So silly. I found mine at Costco, $16 for 50. I’ll share with ya a little later. Then I headed to my moms to see my sister who was gone for Thanksgiving. J snuggled and slept in her arms!
That night we had Heather’s little girl over so of course we had popcorn and a movie. These two crack me up. They’re personalities are so similar.
Our last day in San Fran was technically Sunday morning. The rest of the day was spent a couple different places. We woke up early and headed to church. It was the only day that rained. Lucky for us, we had planned to drive to see a lot of places. We headed to see some Redwood trees near Santa Cruz. I wish I describe accurately just how cool the experience was. Since it was raining, Josh and I were the only ones on the trail. It was so peaceful and beautiful. The smell was so great too. The calm rain drops and a distant steam engine in the background was all we could hear as we slowly walked through these giant trees.
Some were 1700 years old! At the beginning of the trail there was a tree ring that showed how old it was. The last tag was when Christ was born, so crazy!
Later we drove into Santa Cruz and found this Indian restaurant that I thought was pretty tasty. Josh didn’t finish his dish…
Our last stop was Stanford. By far the prettiest area we saw on the trip. So many beautiful fall leaves and cute homes. We found this ice cream place called Cream that did not disappoint.
Then we headed home. The weekend could not have been better especially because I got to spend it with my best friend.
do you like driving?
what’s your favorite ice cream sandwich flavor?
I chose M&M cookies and cookie dough ice cream=)
