Weekend Adventures: With the Johnsons!

We had a multi-day weekend adventure starting on Thursday evening when we drove to the airport to pick up Auntie Ann, Uncle Brian, Lucy and Kate!!  What fun the cousins had together this weekend!
 On Friday we trekked in via the BART and Cable Cars to downtown San Francisco.  We did a bunch of walking, had lunch in Ghirardelli Square, saw the golden gate bridge and Alcatraz from the bay and even got to see a little bit of the Blue Angels show!  It was a fun, but long day and a bit chilly in the city.

On Saturday Kate and Kyla went to ballet class (too cute!) and then we all spent the rest of the day riding rides at Great America.  Lucy and Keanan were rock stars on the BIG roller coasters!



there was a foam pit!
from here we went on the loggers run to get washed off!

Sadly, we had to drop the Johnson's back at the airport this morning. =(  A short, but very fun visit.
Four little monkey's sleeping in the bed!
After church today Zac and the kids met up with our friend Gabe and his daughter Zoe for a little hike at Steven's Creek county park.  The goal was to spot some turtles (Kyla is on T), and they did!  I was able to relax for a bit in a quiet house, ahh.

A wonderful weekend!  This next week is break week for us for school (we do 6 weeks on, 1 week off all year long) and we have some fun field trips planned.  Next weekend's adventure might possibly include the Ireland's!

Have a great week!
