Our trip to California

We had a great trip to CA. San Francisco was very cool even though we didn't get to see much. Time with Nathan's sisters was a lot of fun especially seeing the kids. Great form of birth control though. Here's a few pics from our trip.

When we got there Saturday we headed straight to a bar to see the Ohio State/Michigan game. GO BUCKS!!!!, then went to dinner with a friend and to a couple of bars. Not really any pics.

Sunday was the BIG game. The all you can eat/drink alumni tailgate party was cool. Got to see a couple old guys (one even told me to keep my shirt on not let anything fall out ), one had a couple championship rings. Whoa, those things are huge! Then on to the field for pre-game warm ups. That was seriously unbelievable (insert british accent of course ), Nathan's face as we walked onto the field was priceless. You really don't appreciate how big those guys are until they are right there. If you see the yellow dotted line that goes around the field, that was our boundary. We could walk around outside of that. We got to stay out there about 45 minutes, then it was time for the game. Good game, 49ers tried to lose it, but came out on top. I'm sure Nathan will tell you more about his experience.

Monday we walked to the Wharf, had lunch then flew to Burbank to see the family. Great turkey dinner and time with the family. That's my write up for now, here's some pictures.

Coming onto the field for warm-ups.


These guys and 1 girl walked around the parking lot playing to the tailgaters, then they played at the game too. They were really good!

We decided to walk Lombard Street from the Wharf to our hotel. Boy were we not smart! Holy cow, most of it was up hill. Our legs were sore the next day. This first pic is walking from the Wharf to the 'crooked' part of Lombard. We walked all the way from there to the top!


Looking down the hill we just walked up.


Same spot as the previous picture just about to go up the crooked part.

I bought a sourdough turkey from Boudin's at the Wharf. Great bread.


This is Domingo, he was banished outside while dinner was being done.


This is also Domingo. He came downstairs like this and we laughed SO hard. I thought I was gonna pee my pants. I said I had to get a picture. Poor guy gets so embarrassed he walks all hunched over. Nathan's sister says they might make it a Christmas card to send to a few friends. Warning: doggie porn!!!!

I would have to say that is the best way to experience a game. We went to the alumni tialgate party and some of the players from the previous Super Bowl teams were there. Sapolu and Fiore being the biggest names.

The all you could eat and drink part was nice since it was actually good food (chicken, pasta, brats and cookies) and beer and wine.

San Fran is a very cool city. Pricing for houses is crazy but I loved just walking around or being able to take ample and safe public transit. City seemed very clean compared to other big cities I have been in.

Time with the family was a lot of fun and it is always tough to leave. Lots of laughs and alcohol. Hope everyone had as good a holiday week as us.

Figures you'd miss the women with pom-pom's and focus (pun intended) in on the lens.

I LOVE SF! Great city to visit and have a good time. Good bars, good sites, great restaurants... and yes it it fairly clean for a large city! Even the bums have fun being bums - workin it for money. While eating lunch one day down near the warf we watched these two dudes scare the hell out of poeple passing bye them... oblivious to them they would scare these people something fierce. Was the best entertainment I'd seen during lunch since the all you can eat fish buffet at the strip joint.

Dont even get me started on China town... now thats a fun section!

I LOVE Tig Bitties!
