breakfast3.jpg: Another breakfast shot, except I'm in the picture and Yusuke is taking it.
alcatraz.jpg: We went sightseeing a bit and Patricia, Mom, and Yusuke were looking out over the water at Alcatraz.
foggyview3.jpg: It was a really foggy view that day.
alcatraz2.jpg: Here you can see a good shot of the prison.
goldengate1.jpg: Yay, Golden Gate Bridge.
goldengate2.jpg: There we are with it.
buyingtree.jpg: Patricia and Yusuke decided to get a Christmas tree for their place. It's a small tree and this is them about to buy it.
pinkbearontree1.jpg: But she's never had a Christmas tree before, so she's not really sure what to put on it. . . .
pinkbearontree2.jpg: Think this is a good decoration?
openhand.jpg: Another thing we did while visiting was volunteer at Project Open Hand. My sister does a shift there every week and my mom and I joined in during our visit. We chopped mushrooms and peeled carrots for about three hours as part of a charity food program, and then we got a free meal afterwards. :)
garlanded.jpg: To help with the decorations, I finger-knitted a bunch of yarn into a garland for the tree. But before we put it on, Patricia decided to see what it looked like on me first.
garlanding1.jpg: Here's P putting the garland where it belongs.
garlanding2.jpg: Looks nice!
pzoltar.jpg: We went out to a pier thing to see the seals and check out the shops, and P decided to play the Zoltar fortune-telling machine.
icecreamtree2.jpg: There was a big Christmas tree in the middle of everything. Here's me, Mom, and Yusuke posing with it, with our ice cream.
icecreamtree.jpg: Similar shot except now Patricia is in the shot.
housecollection.jpg: While driving around, we saw some pretty cool street layouts. Look at all those houses.
curvystreet.jpg: Lombard Street, the crookedest street in the world!
ornaments1.jpg: The quest to decorate the tree continues! We had Patricia's friends Amber and Kyle over, and they brought surprise ornaments. Yusuke was excited.
ornaments2.jpg: Here he is happily decorating the tree.
ornaments3.jpg: Kyle is helping fix the lights.
ambergarland.jpg: There was also this silver garland thing, and Kyle appears to think Amber needed to be decorated with it. She doesn't look too amused.
garlanding3.jpg: They sure were having fun though.
pyfirsttree.jpg: Here they are showing off their first tree. (They were not attempting to look like robots, but somehow they look mechanical. . . . )
kafirsttree.jpg: Kyle and Amber posing with the tree as well.
