Weekend Roundup

It's been quite a weekend!  Friday was a mellow(ish) night at home with the boys. Saturday I had a 30k trail race, then made it home to go walking with the boys and my mom while Matt went climbing off Chrissy Field.

Saturday night my mom and I went to see The Little Mermaid ballet with the San Francisco ballet.  We didn't get home until 11pm and I was BEAT! I didn't love the ballet ... I'm more a fan of the classics, then again I say that with my favorites being the Nutcracker and Tom Sawyer (which I was in as a kid) - not so classic I guess (not the Firebird).  I was expecting the ballet to be reminescent of the movie The Little Mermaid, but instead it was base on the old fairy tail - I didn't understand what was going on until reading the handout at intermission.

Sunday was a rather lazy day in the city.  Bright and early (like 8am) we went to Whole Foods and were headed to check out the JCC swim school until we realized it was too early.  Later in the morning I brought the boys for a long walk playing at Michaelangelo park and then on the swings in Washington Square. After that we hung out in the back yard of our house listening to the parrots of Telegraph Hill and "discovering" grass (the boys were, not us).

In the afternoon wet met up with the Russian Hill parents' group for some home-made treats and trips down the slide (the boys on our laps).  By dinner time we were thoroughly beat, but we still had bath time - today we let the boys take their bath in the "grown up tub" and they love love loved it!  Wilson kept scooting around the tub and Cole kept kicking his legs and splashing his arms.
