our san francisco trip

Last week during the Thanksgiving holiday our little family took a road trip to San Francisco to visit my sister and her family. San-Francisco-tripWe took a rest stop and let the kids run and play along the beautiful Bonneville Salt Flats

San-Francisco-trip2It was such a lovely trip and so nice to spend time with both my sisters, and their kids, as well as my mother.   We spent our time lunching in Sausalito, looking at the beautiful views of the Bay bridge, and exploring Muir woods.

San-Francisco-trip3Henrik had so much fun in Muir woods running around with his cousins.  Unfortunately he wasn't allowed to explore beyond the board walk.  Henrik sat down to pout because "They won't let me play in the nature."  And his sister sat down to keep him company.

San-Francisco-trip4We had a wonderful time enjoying the exhibits at The California Palace of the Legion of Honors.  At the moment they have an amazing Anders Zorn exhibit (one of my husbands favorite painters).

San-Francisco-trip5My sister lives close to Mount Diablo State Park.  After our Thanksgiving feast we went exploring around the beautiful rolling hills, and even got to see the sun set.  What a view!

San-Francisco-trip6Henrik and his cousin Ethan are the best of friends,  it's too bad they live so far away from each other.

San-Francisco-trip7Henrik made sure to bring his suitcase full of clay and armature wire. The cousins had so much fun playing together and spent a lot of their time working on clay figures.

On Thanksgiving day my sister had a table set where everyone could draw and make turkeys and write what they were thankful for.  Maja drew both hands, her head and other doodles.

San-Francisco-trip8I even got a little Christmas shopping in at this darling shop, Tantrum.  While I was in the store they were filming an American Express commercial.  Hopefully I don't make a cameo in their commercial.

San-Francisco-trip9I think one of the highlights for Henrik was to see the real life Egyptian Sarchophagus.  At the moment he is obsessed with all things Egyptian.

San-Francisco-trip10I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving.  Thanks for letting me share a bit of ours with you.
