Last month my parents were out for a visit. Unfortunately it rained nearly the entire 10 days. My parents didn’t mind though. They were happy to hang out with us and (lucky for me) do projects around my house. My dad is Mr. Fixit and did a all kinds of helpful things like power wash my patio, clean my gutters, and fix the broken hatch on my car. I don’t even have to ask, he just finds things. My mom is no slouch either. She painted my chandelier, made a curtain for my bathroom, baked delicious oatmeal raisin cookies and taught my friends and I how to make Bavarian style pretzels.
We did manage to have a couple breaks in the weather and did a day trip South to Carmel and later in the week a trip up to San Francisco. I felt guilty having them only do projects around my house and thought we should spend a couple of days playing tourist. 🙂 Here are a few photos from our two excursions. As always, we all had a great time with my folks. They are some of the best parents and grandparents around and I thank my lucky stars every day to have them in my life. After you’ve checked out my photos, please go through our blog circle and visit Jen’s blog to see her beautiful photos of some cool neighborhoods in San Francisco.
