Vacation Hangover

Holy crap am I busy.

Today is my first day back from a long weekend visiting extended family in Silicon Valley and I am officially swamped, so here’s my weekend-long vacation in photos with simple captions that could have been written by a caveman:

I have so much more to say about our weekend but I’m waaaay too busy right now and still too exhausted to reduce it to words. Suffice to say we had an incredibly fun time catching up with–and in some cases meeting–members of our extended family. (We have a very large family, so this is not as weird as it sounds.)

And now we’re back at home, and I’m back at work, and it’s time to get back at it.

  1. Looks so fun, I love San Francisco! The farmers market at the Ferry Building on Saturday mornings is the one thing my husband and I make sure to do each time we visit. And of course eat lots of delicious food.

    • We really wanted to hit the farmers market but arrived too late–it closed a couple of hours before we got there. I did manage to eat a shrimp empanada and some handmade salted caramels from inside the building, though!

  2. Molly, these are GREAT pics! What better way to share your experience in San Francisco; few words necessary. 🙂 Your kids are adorable, and I love that your son what “starstruck” by the Camaro in the parking garage – so classic! Thanks for a great view into your vacation!
