We always plan for a cool day in the bay area. I will always over pack and bring extra clothes especially when we are taking family photos. I was hoping for some nice foggy family photos with the bridge in the background. But the weather decided to be cheerful and maybe a little to warm for us. I had the baby dressed in a sweater dress with tights, Carlie and Dean had several layers on and my husband was required to wear his blazer. As much as I wanted to keep my hair down for the pictures, I would absentmindedly throw it up in a ponytail. We met my cousin Lupe D Brooke at the Ferry Building and started the family photos. We pretended to smile because everyone was hangry. We pretended to be cheerful because everyone was being mean. And poor Solin did not have her nap, she was the crankiest of all of us. I assumed we would have a great shoot, but like I said we were very hungry and angry at the same time. We decided to buy some treats around the shops located inside the Ferry Building and once we were satiated and baby had slept a good 40 minutes… We were ready.
(We love these fungi a little too much as you can see from this past post HERE)
(Breastfeeding is difficult when you are out in public. We actually had a panhandler come up to us and ask for money and then apologized because he knew I was indisposed)
(She loves being naked... what can I say)
(Mr. Dean uses the city blocks like a jungle gym)
(Stairs to the Coit Tower)
(Enjoyed a beautiful stroll in Washington Square Park)
(If you ever get a chance to visit Little Italy in San Francisco you must go HERE)
(Only the best!)
(I love seeing her fall asleep on daddy's shoulder)
(We wanted to try something new and the Honey Pie was beyond AMAZING. There was north beach honey, scallions, mozzarella, and fried caramelized onions. The assortment together was a delicious treat!)
(She is only 6 months old and I think she is tired of me taking photos of her... but she loves to chew on everything!)
(And of course we had to get Gelato for dessert)
After the grueling time spent taking family photos. My husband wanted to make this trip memorable so we went out and explored parts of the city we had never seen before. Once we all had some pizza and gelato we were ready to conquer the world.
