Welcoming Fall in San Francisco

We went up to the city yesterday to have lunch at one of our favorite restaurant, Scoma's, at Pier 39. They have the BEST clam chowder in the city, and the best seafood. It's a bit pricey for us, that's why we only go once in a while! Then we walked down to Ghirardelli Square, played in the sand a bit. And of course, Samantha just had to get her bottom half wet! Then we had the most delicious dessert at Ghirardelli, Cookie Bottom Hot Fudge Sundae!! All four of us shared one, but it was just PERFECT!

So After putting a billion calories in out belly, we walked it off at the Golden Gate Bridge. We didn't walk far, Sami was REALLY tired. But it was a nice clear day, we could see all around the bay, it was really beautiful. A perfect fall day!

Art and Wine Festival

We went to the annual Mountain View Art and Wine Festival today and had a blast! They had a new booth there this year that sold cool handmade wands. Sean made huge bubbles, it was really amazing to see! We walked around Castro Street for about an hour, and the kids got to play at the Kid's park. Anna got some great shoots of the kids!Sean did the giant jump slide and jump house while Samantha watched (she was too chicken to do anything!) Then we went to In N Out for lunch! We had a great morning walking around and it was a beautiful day to do it in! Next week, we are going to the Santa Clara Art and Wine Festival! Can't wait!

First Day of Preschool

Today was Samantha's first day of preschool. She was so excited! Of course she didn't want to wear the dress I made her, so I had to use my persuasion skill to get her to wear it. It took 20 minutes to have her convinced that by wearing the dress, she will be the prettiest girl in class. First day of school was only 1 hour (I wished it was longer), so it was pretty much time to pick her up when I got home.

She made a small project and got some play dough from the her teacher, Mrs. Dallas.
Samantha can't wait to go again!

Halloween Haunts!

One of my favorite holidays is coming up, HALLOWEEN!
In honor of that, and Sami going to preschool for the first time, I designed 3 sets for her to go to school or party with. She keeps asking me, "is it Halloween yet?"

I have this beautiful Euro style skirt and appliqué top set for fall on ebay right now.
It is made out of medium weight twill and has lots of twirl.
Wear it with a jean jacket or a cardigan, it is a perfect transitional set.
