We had a wonderful, family filled weekend. Andrew's mom was in town staying with us since Thursday, and my parents came down to spend the day with us on Sunday. We thought it would be fun to go downtown and see the holiday decorations and play tourist in the city.
We started our tour at The Fairmont to see the two story Gingerbread house in the lobby. The lobby was so beautiful, and the gingerbread house was quite impressive. I learned that my great grandmother, whom I was named after, lived at the Fairmont! They had a beautiful garden outside where we snapped some photos and took in the beautiful San Francisco views and weather before heading off to continue our little city tour.
We walked through Union Square, saw the tree in Neiman Marcus, rode the glass elevators at the St. Francis Hotel, went to Macy's and ended our tour at the Ferry Building.
It was such a beautiful, and warm, December day. I loved spending time with both our parents and taking in the Christmas cheer around the city. It was fun to play tourist and see all the festive window displays and hotel lobby's.
After our long day out and about, we came home and made a delicious dinner complete with my Mom's home made apple pie. It was nice just to relax and visit after a long day. It's hard to believe tomorrow is Christmas Eve, and we'll be driving up to spend Christmas at my parents. Then Friday we're off to San Diego to continue our Christmas with Andrew's family.
