Worth a Thousand Words

Some pictures from this San Francisco weekend:

Saturday started with this conversation:
me: "Freeman, love you!"
F: "Gaga."
He remains obsessed. His dad even let him watch the Telephone video . . . watch out!

After Freeman and I were rejected at the door of the California Academy of Sciences for arriving three minutes after they stopped letting people in, we went and picked up my friend Doro and some sandwiches from Bi Rite and headed to Dolores Park (where, incidentally, the rest of San Francisco was). Here they are chasing each other. :)


Me and my littlest bff, wearing his hipster stripes, in the park . . .

Delighted little F.

On Sunday morning, we took my dear student JH to brunch at the Beach Chalet for her 18th birthday! We did not partake in the $5 bottomless mimosas, but certainly intend to return post-Easter and sans-student.

Happiest birthday J!

After brunch, Gaela and I hiked Land's End (after gazing at Robin Williams's old house and the house Suri Cruise is reported to be moving into). I took this picture along our hike . . . seriously, I live in the most gorgeous place in the country. Note the Golden Gate Bridge in the background.

I mean seriously, right? So beautiful.

And now, concluding this weekend of sunshine, I'm sitting with Gaela at Bazaar Cafe drinking a soy latte and "working" (we know how that goes). All this plus my little mama's impending visit and some sweet, late-night conversations with my far-off rugby player made this weekend pretty near perfect. Hope yours was the same!

Rugby player? What did I miss out on? Clearly we lost a lot of topic points by going to the movies! We gotta hang out again!

Oh you know all about him, silly. :) My cute man who moved to Chicago for a few months to play rugby? The one I met in San Diego during the breast cancer walk? We talked about this at dinner. ;)

Oh, I'm so glad you had a fabulous weekend, my love! Freeman is so incredibly adorable; and that birthday brunch dessert looks divine. Happy, Happy Belated Birthday to J!! :)

Glad you had such a nice weekend, your little man is adorable! Nice pictures too - thanks so much for stopping by my blog. :)

Thanks so much--he's just my little babysitting charge though. I've taken care of him since he was only 5 weeks old! I hope that one day I have a kid as cute as he is. :)

ohmyGOD it is so beautiful there! and your son is just ADORABLE!!! so cute.

p.s. kudos to you for not murdering anyone at the museum for not letting you in. argh! how frustrating that must have been!

Claire Kiefer said...

Hahaha I should probably clarify in my posts that he's the little guy I babysit for and not my own kid, huh? . . .
