In August, we took a mini trip to San Fransisco just for two days. We drove up to my dad's, stayed the night and than drove the 4 1/2 hours north to get there. We had such a good time! And surprisingly the kids did great in the car and while we were out and about! =)
The first night there, we stayed in the city, in a tiny little room with two queen beds (no bathroom in the room, it was shared) but we did get a nice view of the city street. I think that was pretty exciting for the kids to see the big crowds of people crossing the streets, honking cars and lively city right below us! Me and David enjoyed people watching too! ;)

We really explored the Golden Gate bridge from the opposite side of SF. We hiked down to the beach and saw it from the bottom! It was pretty neat.
We had planned to take the 1 hour ferry tour of the Bay, but it was so cold and windy and Levi was starting to come down with a cold, so we didn't want to risk him getting more sick. Instead we took the kids to a children's museum and that was a blast!
The second night we stayed outside of the city in Mill Valley, and it was nice! We really liked this hotel. It was so comfortable, quiet and there was a bathroom in our room lol!
Now I'll share some pictures from on our way there and on our way back home.

Like I said, we usually travel cheap and love exploring rather than paying for adventures when we travel. We don't usually buy souvenirs, we capture memories. This was a great trip we really enjoyed as a family of four. Sorry for the super long and photo dump post, thanks for checking out my blog. =)
