Be Sure to Wear Some Flowers in Your Hair.

Guess where we are?

Oh, can't you tell? Don't you see that beautiful bridge in the background?

Recognize it yet?

We are in San Francisco, and having the time of our lives.

After our successful trip to Wisconsin, I decided that it was time to stop being afraid of traveling with Ellie, and start showing her the world. So last night we went wheels up at 7pm, and drove straight up the 5 to stay with our friends Bob and Nancy. Beans was a pretty remarkable traveler - she fell asleep right before we wanted her to, which sort of sucked, but after we got her in her pjs, she did eventually consent to going back to sleep (because I got in the back seat and stroked her sweet little face.) Slept in until 7 this morning, and took a great nap at my friend Anne's apartment in the city while we were off exploring.

Then she was DESPERATE to ride a bus, so I told her we could ride the cable car. There was much screaming about wanting to go to the cable car. We got there, and the line was an hour long, so we convinced her that she just wanted to sit on the cable car (thank goodness for the nice operator who let us sit her up there for a minute.) Then of course, once she got what she wanted, she whined nonstop about it. This is basically the only picture where she appears to be a decent human being.

It's the best trip ever!
