The Saturday before last, Michael's cousin Janelle and her husband Mark were in San Francisco for Mark's work. Michael, June and I drove over to spend the afternoon and evening together with them. They live in New Jersey and we wanted to take advantage of the rare close-ish proximity.
We waited until after June's dance class - and after a quick lunch - before making the drive over.
Unfortunately, there were quite a few big events going on in San Francisco that day - and right in the part of town we were getting to, so while the first 5/6ths of the drive was smooth sailing, the last bit was hellish. I think it took us 45 minutes to travel one mile, which is pretty terrible when your toddler is telling you she needs to go potty.
But we got there! With dry pants all around! (It was a close one for me, too.)
After a quick pitstop and a snack and a drink, we all walked through downtown toward the water.
We went to the Embarcadero and walked around the little shops there, plus we had a nice view of the Bay Bridge.
We had an awesome dinner in a small, delicious Italian restaurant and got to catch up with Janelle and Mark. It really turned out to be a great time and we were so glad to see family - even if it was just for a day!
