Touching down in San Fransisco


Of course...we endured airport drama...our flight was delayed about 2 hours.
We sat in DFW airport and had breakfast and chatted with Jarred and Shelby.

I was a bit nervous about the flight. I clearly need to get out and about a bit more than I do. I'm not a fan of the taking off. The landing I can deal with. The flight was so long...four hours. I was going nuts. I am used to chasing kids.
It was sort of nice though, to sit and not have someone tugging on my arm...Mommy do this, Mommy let's play! HA! Gary and I weren't used to having an uninterrupted conversation.

The landing made me a bit nervous because it was raining AND we couldn't see anything.
Finally, we could see through the clouds, and I thought we were about to
land in the water. If you have ever flown into San Fran it is right on the bay. I made it past without hyperventilating and we jumped off the plane and headed to rent a car.




Our plans changed with the weather.
We planned to go sight seeing when we arrived.
We were gonna head on into San Fran, but not in the rain. It was raining like mad! I was a bit upset...hoping it wouldn't rain the whole time! It didn't...yay!
We ended up in San Jose at a yummy restaurant.



We all ordered something different and shared food. The food was to die for :)
The guys talked me into trying raw oysters. Wow, that was a sight to see.
I am not a fan! I wish I could tell you how funny that was.
I am so embarrassed!


We sat in this fun private booth. It had a curtain, but we didn't close it.
We were really the only people in the place. Gary is sitting there checking out the menu.

You can see they have their St. Patrick's Day decor going on.




Love these people. I am so thankful for great friends!



Here is my happy, glad to be off the airplane, I am starving face :)


After our super yummy meal we headed to the hotel/resort.
It was so pretty! I was in love.

I'll post more soon!
