Hiiii! We’re still in Poland. Here is T1 doing what he loves most, playing in my in-law’s backyard.
Here is Krakow:
All of the family members here keep saying “Your time here is so short, too short.” I hope they will come visit us in California soon, now that we have the space to host them!
When I announced we were moving to Chicago two years ago, you guys flooded me with suggestions regarding what to do and see while we were there, and I loved it! If you’re headed to Chicago and would like to find ideas regarding where to eat, I have a Pinterest board devoted to places I’ve been (and a few places I wanted to go but never got to).
I logged in to Facebook this morning and noticed a friend had asked what to see/eat/do in San Francisco which led to lots of fabulous suggestions. Do you have any suggestions for me? Now that we have more disposable income and T1 is a little bit older we are looking forward to exploring a bit more. Also we haven’t been very good about making date night a regular occurrence and I am committed to making sure that changes from here on out!
Although I’m sure most people know and love San Francisco the best (and I’m sure we will make some trips up there!) we’re living closer to Stanford and suggestions related to the Palo Alto area would be much appreciated. Or Berkeley or San Jose if it’s something we absolutely can’t miss.
If you have a whole books worth of ideas and would like to get specific, here are the type of suggestions that fit our current lifestyle:
Family outings appropriate for children under 5
Weekend half-day trips for the whole family
Inexpensive (and delicious!) restaurants in the Palo Alto area where I can take friends and family when they come stay with us, or for meeting up with people in the area
Unique restaurants for date night (they don’t have to all be expensive, though French Laundry and Chez Panisse are already on my list!)
Date night ideas (particularly free ones in the Peninsula area of the Bay)
Activities and places to take guests (with/without kid(s) )
Any and all restaurants (and why you loved them) because I love bookmarking possibilities and looking at menus!
Next week we are going to have a few days together before TH starts work and I want to do something fun before he gets really busy. I’m thinking a day trip down to Santa Cruz (it’s about n hour from where we live) could work. Is there another beach town you would suggest instead? Or something else a sick pregnant lady can handle?
