Anderson Sightings

We have had a house full family visitors for the past two weeks which has been so much fun. The first week we were lucky to have my oldest sister Kim and her family plus Alexis' friend Morgan here from Washington. Their kids happened to have Spring Break the same week as Jeff so we knew it was fate telling us to spend it together. We actually had them staying with us and since we didn't get any pictures of them in our place try to imagine 11 people in a 2 bedroom, 1100 square foot apartment?? Yeah it was tight, but the amount of fun we all had together because of the tight quarters is something that we can't describe. We did everything we possibly could in San Francisco from Fisherman's Wharf and the Bay Aquarium, Chinatown, and a quick stop in Haight Ashbury to our favorite little mexican place and the older girls loved the shopping here too. We did manage get the world famous "Bush Man" at Fisherman's Wharf to scare Morgan which was hilarious. We also had a couple of days to relax so Jeff and Brad got a round of golf in while Kim and I took the kids to the pool. Our nights were spent watching American Idol and Brian Regan DVD's which was great. Mostly we were just flattered that they decided to suffer through a 12 hour ride in the car in order to spend their break with us of all people. We could not have had any more fun, and the company as always was what we enjoyed the most. We love you guys and hope to see you again soon!

A stop at Powell's Candy store was the highlight for the boys!!
Luckily there was no fog so we all enjoyed a view from Golden Gate Bridge!

We took a tour at the Jelly Belly factory which was a hit. It was fun to see how they make them and to walk away with samples of all the wonderful flavors.
A stop at the Cable Car Museum looks a little more like a one way ticket on the Crazy Train!!

Beautiful ladies in front of the Painted Ladies! We had a picnic at Alamo Square talking about our favorite "Full House" moments. 
A stop at Golden Gate Park is always a must when you visit San Francisco. They just built a new playground that all the kids loved. You can't really tell but the kids are on a huge wave, that's why Jacob has such a cool surfer face!!

So fun!!! You guys are awesome hosts, we might just have to come stay with you to have you take us around to all of the sights! You guys went everywhere, that is so fun. I haven't been to some of those places and it looks like such a great time. I'm glad you had so much fun with your family in town! :)

It looks like you guys had such a great time. I enjoyed getting to meet them, they seem like they are really fun people! You guys probably feel lonely now that no one is staying with you! ;)

Full House memories--loving it! What a busy time for you. It can be exhausting to have so many visitors, but then again, a good excuse to get out and see a lot of fun stuff!
