Our Weekend Getaway

Noah and I really needed some time to ourselves. So we called up Noah's mom to see if she could watch the girls so we could go on a weekend getaway. She was able to do this at her house so on Thursday evening we dropped the kids off and planned our weekend. Our destination would be to Half Moon Bay, but 1st we would stop by San Fransisco. We thought it would be fun to see some sites in San Fran that we often skip because we have the girls with us. So on Friday morning we drove to the San Fransisco Wharf and hopped on a bus to our 1st stop Mama's on Washington Square. They serve breakfast and lunch only. The line was out the door and around the corner which we read it usually is. After a 30 min wait we finally made it to the door where they ask how many in your party and have you get in another line to order your food. Noah ordered the Monte Cristo and I ordered the Chocolate French Toast they were both EXCELLENT and SO YUMMY! After brunch we we walked to China Town, then rode the trolley to Union Square and checked out the shops. Then we hopped on the cable cars and rode down to Fisherman's Wharf where we walked and took on the sights and sounds of it all.That afternoon we headed down to Half Moon Bay just in time to check in and get our couples massage.
We ate dinner at a little place called Flying Fish Grill it was excellent. On Saturday morning we got up bright and early to go horseback riding along the ocean. It was a ton of fun. We enjoyed every moment of it. After our little adventure we came back for a nap. We had lunch at It's Italia PIzzeria one of the best Italian places we have eaten at, and walked along the downtown Halfmoon Bay. When we got back to our hotel we took a walk on the beach outside our place, followed by a nice romantic dinner at the Mezza Luna Italian Restaurant.

On Sunday we relaxed, slept in, and checked out. On our way back home we stopped at Fitzgerald Marine preserve. Then Golden Gate Park to enjoy the many gardens including the Japanese Tea Garden.
