Golden Gate Park was cool, with lots of things to see. It was a Sunday so the roads through the park were closed for pedestrian traffic. There were tons of people - locals & tourists alike - out enjoying the sunny day.

|Some Groovy Roller-skaters|
|Free Swing Lessons (which this couple did not need - they were awesome! Just look at how his leg is bending - how is that even possible!?)|

|Nice! Mom makes it up the hill on the 50lb bike!|
|Nice cold brewskis on a hot day. Mom loved her IPA in particular!|
The next day we biked again - that's how we roll, literally. We took the bikes across the bay to Sausalito where we hung out for a bit then rode our bikes to another small town, Tiburon.

In Sausalito we ate at Fish, where our the chef is the nephew of one of our family friends & neighbours from growing up. The food was delicious, and worthy of the long line outside the restaurant!

For dinner on our last night, we ate at Gary Danko, which I think is only Michelin Star rated restaurant I've eaten at (one star). Bronwyn made the reservation months ago, otherwise we never would have got in. The food was top notch and the service was the best I've ever seen. The wait staff manages to make you feel like you are their favourite table and they can't wait to take care of you - without feeling forced or phoney. It was a real treat!
After four days away, I couldn't wait to get home to see my lovely boys! Little did I know I was to be greeted by a grumpy monkey with 3 molars & one cuspid tooth coming in. He flashed me one weak smile before erupting into tears and snuggling with his daddy. We'll have lots of cuddles this weekend to make up for my time away!
