This past weekend I was fortunate enough to travel to the Bay Area with my parents. Mom and I had been planning this trip for a while, and it was well worth the wait 🙂
We left early Saturday morning and crossed the Bay Bridge. It was a beautiful day and the drive made us even more excited to explore.
Then we headed to the Embarcadero to visit one of Mom’s favorite bakeries, Miette.
After stocking up on tasty treats (and a few cake pans), we wandered around for a while looking at the other shops. The rest of the day was spent frolicking around Union Square exploring every last inch.
We ended the day visiting David’s Tea, a shop we originally discovered in Canada a few years back. All of the teas have fun names, we ended up bringing home quite the selection.
After adventuring in the City, we attempted to take BART back to our hotel, and almost made it. We snuggled up with some sweets and watched The Intern, a movie my mom has been trying to get me to watch for ages. It was cute, a great end to the day.
The next morning we headed out to Santana Row for some shopping. On the way we stopped at James Lick’s old mansion at the direction of my father. It was a pretty cool place and I’m glad we made the stop.
The rest of the day was filled with shopping and fun. It was a great trip, and soon enough we might just make the trek back. Great way to start off Spring Break, more to come 🙂
