Lots of pictures ahead; It was hard to decide!
After we left twin peaks, we headed over to the Golden Gate bridge. We drove through a beautiful neighborhood with amazing homes overlooking the bay. The huge cables that are on the bridge! This guy was painting part of the bridge. He was not hooked up to any safety cable either! Crazy. We drove down the famous Lombard Street After the bridge, we went to Fisherman’s Wharf and had a delicious lunch! Steph is a picky-face and had a corn dog. Are you kidding me? Dan and I enjoyed a crab sandwich, calamari, and clam chowder. We had to battle the sea gulls and we almost lost that fight. Steph took this cute picture. It was about this time that she started to feel a little sick… These guys were break dancing on the streets and it was pretty awesome to watch.
After this, we strolled the wharf and checked out the sea lions. My sister got sick and lost her lunch in the bathroom there. We were almost done for the day, so we hit up some shops and had delicious ice cream at Ghiradelli Square.
At this point, Steph was really feeling sick so we headed to the car and battled a 3 hour drive back to Lodi (should have been closer to 1 hour). We made a pit stop and Steph lost her guts again. She was deathly ill the entire way home and threw up numerous times (thank goodness for ziploc bags). Dan was a gem and didn’t say a word while she did her thing and I tried to comfort her. It was a long ride and luckily my aunt and uncle had a nice comfortable room for her to stay in.
She threw up a total of 12 times in the next few hours and asked me many times if she was going to die. :) She talked about wishing she had jumped off the bridge in San Fran and other nonsense that sick people say when they’re sick. She must have gotten what my mom had the day before.
Steph and cutie pie Riley. Loving spending time with the grandparents. Riley and big brother Jacob. Gramps and Steph This was so stinkin’ precious. My grandpa needs help walking and little Riley (great-grandson) held his hand and “helped” him get to the family room from the kitchen. Love it. Whew. That was picture overload, but oh well! We had a great time and I’m so grateful that we had the opportunity to go out there and get a break and visit family we don’t get to see a lot. It was a wonderful break.
