50 Things to do with your children in San Francisco

I wrote a post last week over at Alpha Mom titled “San Francisco: 50 Things to do with your children before they grow up.” I got help from all my veteran-mommy-friends making this list. There are some hard things about trying to raise children in the city. It was nice to be reminded of why I’m doing it. Go here to read the post. {Also: Thank you to Annie Ballard for all the lovely photos.}


I had been wanting to see the Frida Kahlo exhibit at the SF MOMA since it opened so when some friends invited me to go with them today I jumped at the chance. I really enjoyed it, although it was packed. Frida and Diego seemed to really have a volatile relationship, I feel bad for them. This piece is called Moses.


Saturday evening we headed over to the Renegade Craft fair. Lots of pretty things but I didn’t buy anything.

Flower Class

Saturday I went to a flower class. I loooved it. We learned several ways to arrange flowers–and I left with three arrangements. It was the perfect way to spend a Saturday morning.


This weekend was the most fun I’ve had in a long time. Paul took a well deserved rest from painting and we went from one fun activity to the next. Here is a picture of me at the Alameda County Fair. I’m in the middle wearing the white shirt. Among other things we took a ferry to Angel Island and went on a hike. You could see the whole bay in all directions from the top. It really was the perfect weekend.

This week I’m printing Emilystyle‘s wedding invitations–so I’ll be in and out.
