We recently went to our first Giants game of the season! There’s something about that gorgeous park and the smell of garlic fries while wearing our matching shirts that brings me so much happiness. Baseball always signifies the beginning of spring and always makes me itch for a beautiful day game.
We had planned to go with our friends the Morgans but unfortunately he got really sick and they couldn’t come. Fortunately, the Carbines are always up for an adventure and were able to come with us.
On the way from Bart to the ballpark we stopped at this gourmet grilled cheese restaurant that I’ve been dying to go to. It’s called The American Grilled Cheese Kitchen and it was amazing! Mark got the Mac n cheese grilled cheese (yes, the grilled cheese had Mac n cheese inside!) and I got the Moscone which had mozzarella, roasted tomatoes, and lavender basil pesto…so yummy! I would highly recommend it and will be going back.
While Dave and Lauren were here we went to San Francisco with them for a little day trip. I knew I was in for an adventure because Dave is not one to do the typical touristy day. He beats to his own drum and makes everything more fun. First stop of the day was the Mission. I had never been over to this side of the city, it was like driving into Tijuana or Ensenada! Dave and Mark love Yelp and Dave found the place that made the mission burrito famous. We went there for lunch and boy was it delicious! I scarfed down that monster and enjoyed every bite…I’m embarrassed to admit that I ate more than Mark and Dave but it was so worth it!
After, we went over to Lands End Trails and Seal Rocks, which I had never been to before. It was so beautiful, but a bit chilly. It’s on the West side of the Golden Gate bridge near Bakers beach. I will be going back there to explore the beaches. We drove around the city a little, went down Filbert street, the steepest street, went past Lombard street which was absolutely gorgeous filled with amazing bright hydrangeas, it was unreal! We wanted to go by again to get some pictures but it was too busy.
America’s cup is taking place in the city right now so it was packed! After vetoing Pier 39 due to the crowds we decided to head across the bay and over to Fenton’s Creamery, I was all for this decision. If you have not been to Fenton’s you are missing out big time! They have the most amazing sundays and even their food is great. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!
It was also our niece Coraline’s baby blessing so we had a great time all getting together for dinner. I love this sweet little baby and she melted my heart when she smiled at me this weekend!
