Thanks. . .

Thanks, Mel's Diner San Francisco, for hosting the easiest Thanksgiving Dinner ever. Complete with old college buddies, full turkey dinner for the adults, chicken nuggets and hotdogs for the kids which came in those cool car boxes. . .
. . . pumpkin pie, something strange going on with that guy over my shoulder. . .
. . . and a lot of smiles.
Thanks, Ice-skating in Union Square for helping us work off some of those calories after dinner It was a lot more work for the parents than it was for the kids. . .
Thanks, Jenni and the Smiths (sounds like a band!), for letting me steal those from your blog! and for being good enough to tote your camera around even with an armload of new baby, stroller, and two big boys and all the stuff that goes with them. And thanks for ditching the fam to come spend Thanksgiving with us downtown. It was so fun to see you guys.

Thanks, Powell Line Cable Car for giving us a lift up and over the hill down to Ghiardelli Square and Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39. You gave us beautiful views and saved our feet a little bit.
Thanks, Pratts, for always being so photogenic. . . and more importantly for being really fun to travel with.


Thanks, Sea Lions of Pier 39 for teaching my daughter a new animal sound to make. . .
Thanks, Crown and Crumpet, for the perfect afternoon tea. . . for the tiara's and the wands, the little sandwiches, scones, and especially for not making a fuss when Lucy broke a teacup within the first five minutes.




Thanks, Exploratorium, for all the interactive experiments and displays that kept the girls entertained for hours and kept us out of the rain.



Thanks, Muir woods, for some fresh air and big trees and room to run around.





(Those tears are because we took her hiking stick away after she hit Wendy on the head with it.)

Thanks, Westin St. Fancis for being centrally located and for the cool Christmas displays. . .
. . . the 12 foot gingerbread castle and the huge Christmas Tree with cascading lights that was impossible for little hands not to touch. . .


We had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend in San Francisco. . . and I added a few things to my long list of things to be grateful for.
