Good Morning, San Francisco!

It is 4 AM PST and you would think my kids were ready to go run a marathon.  Connor is literally jumping up and down in his Pack 'n Play.  I spent an ungodly amount of money for PBS On Demand so that they can "relax" (read: so that we don't have to get up and start our routine at 4 AM).  You know you are a parent when you pull your rental mini van up to the hotel and the first question you ask your husband is "what time is breakfast in the morning?" and when he says "6:30 AM" you cringe at the realization that you will have at least 2 hours to kill before then. 

But we're thrilled to be here!  Sleep is overrated, right?

We have a busy week planned.  John's brother Rich lives in Berkeley.  He moved here a little over a year ago and we felt it was time to show our "you moved far away but we still love you" support.  We will be here until Saturday when we jump in our sexy car mini van and head south on the Pacific Coast Highway toward San Diego.  We will spend one night somewhere around Santa Barbara, visit some good friends at Point Mugu Naval Air Station on Sunday morning, and be in San Diego by evening.  Since "all of our friends live in San Diego" (no, I don't mean that literally, it just feels that way sometimes) we will have a whirlwind few days seeing them, basking in the sun on Coronado Island, getting our taste of spoon-fed fun at Sea World, and enjoying good Mexican food.

Then, just as the kids adjust to Pacific Standard Time, we will jump back on an airplane and head home.  I'll keep you apprised of our adventures!


Hi, I'm Jill!

Extrovert. Mom of two. Wife of a cute Naval Aviator. Lover of wine. When I'm not chasing my two kids around town you will find me writing, taking too many photos, and researching the ten future areas the Navy could potentially (but probably won't) PCS us. We are fish out of water, landlocked at 7,000 feet. For now.
