Dandy Day

Has it been awhile or has it been awhile, dear readers? While it's true we returned late last Thursday night, we both headed right back to work on Friday, and it's been a whirlwind weekend of readying the petite for summer camp and entertaining the MIL, who was sweet enough to let us fly her up to manage the dog- and house-sitting duties while we were on our epic family vacation.

She's already flying back home tomorrow, so today we brunched at the amazing Serpentine in SF's Dogpatch district, and road-tripped up the coast to see the magical Muir Woods and soak up some sun at the very sweet and quaint Stinson Beach. It was a glorious day, all blue skies and stolen patches of delicious warmth in between brisk sea breezes.

We came home, utterly exhausted from a 12-hour day out and about, and stuffed ourselves with carnitas nachos and strawberry lime margaritas. I figure after all that hiking and not crying over goodbyes and not dying on HWY 1, we earned it!

If these photos have a familiar ring to them, it's because they're the companion pics from FFAF's earlier Mother's Day post! (Yes, yes, way back in May. Good grief!) I'd forgotten about them, which is ridiculous because M looks amazing and her pattern-mixing is kind of epic. It's also interesting to note that it was perhaps warmer in May than it's been in June thus far.

Anyway, enjoy, and keep an eye out for lots of on-location FFAF posts from our holiday!
