Close Encounters with a few Cute Green Sea Turtles in Oahu

While we were visiting Oahu recently we had a close encounter with a few curious and fun green sea turtles.  The kids loved seeing such amazing creatures in their natural habitat and it was a highlight of our trip!

Last weekend we had the opportunity to visit San Francisco, California!  It was our first time to the city and I can’t wait to share all of the amazing things we did in 4 busy days!  For now, here are some of the highlights!  Check back for details on each place 🙂

I scored a great deal on airline tickets via the Name Your Own Price option on Priceline!  We stayed at the Hilton Bayfront Airport Hotel and upon arrival we had this yummy treat waiting for us in the room!  These were them most delicious chocolate chip cookies I think we’ve ever eaten!



Here is one of the most photographed locations in San Francisco: Alamo Square’s “Painted Ladies.”

What a show these lazy sea lions put on for us at Pier 39!  Most of them were happily snoozing away on the docks, but a handful of troublemakers wanted to pick on each other for sunbathing space!
















Have a Great Weekend!!
