It's Christmas Time In The City

TL and I had a meeting to go to in San Francisco, so we decided to take some friends with us and make a little two day trip out of it.  I absolutely love the city at Christmas time.

Justin and Sabrina haven't really explored much of the city before, so we decided to be their little tour guides and take them to a couple of our favorite spots.  {I used to live there & TL's mom has an apartment there}

We made our way through a few delicious little restaurants - including: Dottie's True Blue Cafe in the Tenderloin, Straights in Union Square, Boudin at the Wharf, and The Grove in SOMA.  We also visited Fort Miley, Baker Beach, Golden Gate Park, the full house 'house', Union Street and of course the Wharf & Union Square.  {We fit a lot in two days!}
Golden Gate Park
Fort Miley {we saw dolphins}
 Baker Beach
 The Wharf
 YUM... my favorite :)
The festive street cars

We also went to The Academy of Science in Golden Gate Park.  That was my first time visiting the museum and it was really cool!  I'll post about that soon.

A little over a week until Christmas... I can't believe it!
