Fourth of July

Hi all! It's been awhile, and yes I do know that it's almost the next weekend but I wanted to do a quickish recap of last weekend. I was going through some photos on my phone from the Fourth of July and just had to share them. It was such a fantastic time!

We spent the Fourth and following weekend with my parents in the Bay Area.

Thursday (the ACTUAL fourth of July) began in Alameda. My parents, my brother and his fiance, and Tim, Daisy, and I loaded down the boat and launched in the Alameda Harbor. We explored the San Francisco Bay for awhile before anchoring off the coast of Angel Island (the site of this adventure)

 On the way back, the wind picked up and we started getting swamped! Half of the bay ended up in the boat!


We called it a day after our salt bath :) That night we enjoyed the sounds of the fireworks (because we couldn't see them) from the firepit my brother had just built in the backyard, roasting s'mores and drinking margaritas.

Adri had to leave early early early that morning, so it was just my brother, parents, and Tim and I (and Spock and Daisy). Friday, we all worked on my parents' kitchen remodel. They're putting up drywall, which is so exciting! It's starting to really look like a room rather than a perpetual hazard zone. Later, Tim, Dad and I went to the driving range to hit some balls.

Saturday, we went up to the Delta with the boat one more time. It had been almost two years since the last time I actually got to do something behind the boat, since whenever we go to the lake there are hundreds of kids trying to tube and there's never time for us "big kids". It was TIME.

My turn. Wheeee!
Daisy did so well on her second boat excursion! She was like an expert, except when she snuck up on the seats. Bad dog! But she was so cute.

The only time she really got stressed out was when I went out of the boat to wakeboard. It was like she was watching a tennis match when I crossed the wake.

It was a FANTASTIC weekend and exactly what all of us needed! What did you do on the Fourth?


  1. I haven't been to San Fran in forever. I had so much fun visiting Alcatraz. Your weekend sounds great! :)
