Hello everyone i am so excited to say that this Wednesday was my oldest sisters' birthday, yay! i am incredibly grateful to have, and have had, her in my life growing up. having her as an older sister meant that i always had someone responsible watching out for me, i absolutely hated it and always complained that she acted like my mother. it definitely took maturity and time for me to realize that she did this because she cared deeply about my well being and for that i am incredibly grateful we got to spend another full year together...oh yeah and did i mention she is also extremely hard working.
Anyways she wanted to spend her birthday in Sequoia National Park so we [my two sisters, her husband, the dog and i]packed ourselves into the the car and drove up to the mountains, had a little lunch up there, we went on some short trails before realizing that Vader wasn't allowed in any of them! so we ended up hanging out in a small meadow filled with tiny purple flowers i thought where just beautiful..(there are so many beautiful things in this world that the camera doesn't do it justice) it was a beautiful day that ended with a scoop of ice cream (my favorite!)
My beautiful older sister aka the birthday girl
and hipster younger sister
Vader the baby giant
I know this picture is blurry and people are mid movement but i like it its a snap of a realistic moment in life
The best ice cream is right before entering the park.. I cant remember the name! but it looks like a Christmas cottage.. you'll know it when you see it
Ps. i am also really excited because i have been working really hard on this website and i finally figured out a way to include the "you might also like..." section at the bottom of each post so i have been busy including that in every post. Also the menu up top of the places I've been is now Clickable... that took me quite a while too, but i am very happy with it as it serves as a place where people that are interested in travel can browse posts based on the country and state I've been!

While we where in San Francisco we also had to stop by Castro st/district. This community is known for being openly gay, it was an interesting experience for a girl from a small town in the middle on nowhere. Every one was so open about their sexuality and GUESS WHAT it wasn't even a big deal the earth kept rotating...the sky didn't fall apart.. the world would be such a peaceful place if we lived and let live.
This is us finally exiting San Francisco the trip was extremely nice as i hadn't been in a while and hadn't experienced it with such depth. We also used Airbnb and stayed at a lovely lady's loft she was so nice and chatty. When i go back i want to go to China Town which unbelievably i haven't gone any of the times I've been. There is always so much to see from San Francisco from visiting places to people walking around in costumes. :)

Pier 39 in San Francisco is a go to touristy place, it is a pier full of stores and sight seeing and a good place to get sea food, if you are into that. when we went there was a hilarious circus show for kids..(even if it was for children i thought it was hilarious okay) we walked and hung around taking pictures of the sunset until dark... i really enjoyed this place one of the stairs was like a piano and they play keys as you stepped on them.
I had been to this place but a very long time ago when i was a youngster, it is just how i remembered it. i wish i had stayed longer because there truly is a lot to see but oh well until next time ;)
