Routines until Spring

Over the past couple of months Andrew and I have been set in daily routines. Work, school, church, sleep. Don't get me wrong, we are really enjoying life in San Francisco, I just haven't felt the need to blog about our boring daily lives. We have done a few new things, we started a class at church called "Fundamentals of Church Life" and so far we are really enjoying it. I've also discovered the Farmer's Market here. IT'S AMAZING. But mostly I think that I've been waiting for our families to visit us. My parents and sister stayed with us last Friday night through Tuesday morning. At the moment they're visiting my brother, Mark, in Coronado and Laura is learning how to surf in the warm So Cal ocean. 

Saturday while Andrew was in class, I took the family on an adventure to the Farmer's Market, making a donut stop for my dad and sister along the way. We took the bus across town to the Ferry Building and enjoyed Blue Bottle coffee while we walked around all the booths. I absolutely love coffee from Blue Bottle and I go there every time I have a free Saturday off from work (which isn't very often but that might be a good thing).

At the Ferry Building that hosts the Farmer's Market there is a little shop that sells mushrooms. When I saw it I was reminded of Dan and Sarah's love of mushrooms (and Andrew's comical hatred of them) :) 

Laura wanted to see where I work so I took them downtown to see my store. I don't think they were prepared for the amount of walking we did :) 

After church on Sunday we went out to lunch then went to the Sutro Baths. 

We walked around at Land's End and enjoyed the view.

Monday we adventured to China Town. 

The "I've never been to China Town"-ers infront of the gate.

The streets of China Town.

We found a chicken hat which I made Andrew put on for a picture. 

 The weather cooperated and was great for their visit. 

Laura was happy to receive some coffee that I've been saving over the weeks. 
We get to see them again Sunday night as they head back up to Oregon. 

We are excited to see Dan and Sarah in a couple weeks! 3 months is too long to go between family visits :)
