Weddings in the Fall # 1 Vicky and Andy

Starting in mid-September, I have been to three weddings! All beautiful events. The series of happy and joyous celebrations started with Vicky and Andy's wedding in San Francisco.

Having watched Andy grow into a fine young man from that cub scout in my den; I felt very proud of him as he entered this so grown up step. And what a wonderful girl he is married to! My son, Mike, was one of the groomsmen at this wedding and enjoyed the four-day joyful celebration.

Here is a collection of Andy and Vicky's wedding photos. I asked permission from the photographer if I could publish the album in my blog and he gave me permission to do it.

Exploring San Francisco with the boys - Day 1

Right after school ended for the winter break, I took two of my grandchildren to San Francisco. We had 3 fun-filled days... of children's activities... Such fun.

We started with an overnight here at home. Izzy and Mikey spent Sunday night all set for adventure in San Francisco. They kept telling me they love staying in hotels... so they were looking forward to a hotel stay.

This is Mikey waking up on Monday morning - happily anticipating the San Francisco get-away. Izzy still snoozed away.

We got ready after breakfast and headed to the city. Here we are at check-in at the Marriott.

Country bunkins or what? LOL ... Auntie Tracey who loves these boys came along. She is a gem!

After check in we shopped for a little bit. Finding out that there was a pool, we had to get swim trunks for the boys. Unfortunately none were available at the stores we went to... so we picked up what we thought would work for a short dip at the pool. Oh, and the boys picked up one toy too... Ben Ten - whoever he is... :)

Mikey who protested that "People do not wear belts in the water!" gave in and played in the pool for a bit.

Izzy had a great time...

After the pool session, we rested for a bit and headed to Union Square as I wanted to see the tree... We used to go to the Tree Lighting the day after Thanksgiving... when the children were little, my children that is....

For dinner we headed to the Burger Bar... because I have not been there before... Here is a look at the menu... now wonder I had not visited it before... and no I did not order this one -

I will do a separate post on Burger Bar later....but we ordered this sliders for the kids...$12... tiny burgers... which they did not really eat---

... maybe because they had this decadent milkshake delivered prior to the sliders... but hey we only live once, right?

Back to the hotel after dinner but first a little playtime at the Ferrari store...

This was before they told me "No Pictures!" Izzy loved riding the mini version at the store... one can get one for $5,000. Nice toy. :)

Before heading for bed, the boys made a list of what they wanted to do the next day... :)

Children's museum tomorrow - or says the list . :)

Off to the Coast and other stuff on a Saturday...

Saturday, the beginning of a three day weekend. Yeah!

Tracey asked me if I wanted to go with her and one of her former college roommates on a quick trip to the coast. It was a great day, so I said yes! Besides anytime a young kid asks an old person to tag along with them - is always A OK with me!

Since I went to bed early, I headed my alarm and got out of bed early,

6AM - got out of bed and did what every other person in the United States do on any given Saturday... enter the exciting world of laundry.

6:15 - to who knows when - played on the computer and do my normal waste of time activity! Who invented this addictive online activity? That person needs to pay for some of my therapy because I can not even imagine how much of my life I've wasted since I discovered AOL in 1997!

7:00 or something = made some coffee and breakfast... put clothes in dryer and back to the computer... Did I say something about addiction? Is there comprehab?

8:30 - thought I better shower so I can make that trip to the coast... and yes, I did... not going to the coast smelling like last night's nachos...

9:00 Sort of folded the clothes on kitchen table... they are still there and it has been over 12 hours! Geez, I need help... as I am still on the computer.

9:30 the housekeeper who promised to come at 9AM today arrived (surprise, surprise, she has stood me up for a couple of weeks! ) ... with two of her kids... Something is conspiring against me... seriously!

9:45 - who cares? I am off to the coast... the housekeeper can have her kids at my house, whatever ... (Tracey suggested I find a replacement! )

10 - Tracey, Yung, and myself are off to the coast. Oh, Yung is driving so I can "FaceBook" all the way there! Did I hear "Addict"?

11 - We are on our way towards Half Moon bay... is it October? I see pumpkins!

One of these trees will be decorated someday far away and beautify someone's home...not mine as I have given up on Christmas trees because I decided it takes longer to "de-Christmas" and I am not having any of that any longer...

We arrive in Pescadero... Beach Time!

Halfway around the world, in Cebu, Philippines (my hometown), Amparito Lhuillier, Monique's mom attended a wedding reception in the same gown. She looks very stunning as well.

Wonder if they will show up on E's Fashion Police... They have a segment called " Bi#@h Stole my Look" or something like that. :)
