A few times a year we trade off weekends with Bryan's sister, Jeanine, and watch each other's kids. Our weekend was in February and we had such a wonderful time in San Francisco. Bryan and I love going to the city and it was a gorgeous day! We took BART in, walked to the warf, had lunch, walked to Lombard Street and went down the "Crookedest Street", walked to China Town and shopped for suveniers for the kiddos, walked to Union Square and did some shopping, ate delicious food and just enjoyed being together. We love doing these trade off with Jeanine! The kids love being together and the parents love bonding with nieces and nephews and also love free weekends. Such a win-win all around!

We just had Maddie's birthday party this weekend and I realized I'd never posted pictures of Jillian's birthday party in February. I know, I'm a slacker. Jillian really wanted a "Movie Theater Party" so we did it just as she wanted. She invited her closest friends and we went to see the movie Arrietty. I bought everyone a "Movie Meal" with popcorn, drink and treat. We all sat together and watched the movie. Afterwards we went to the build your own frozen yogurt shop in the mall and everyone got to create their own dessert. This is Jillian's most favorite dessert! Then she opened presents and the kids played until it was time to go. Everyone had a wonderful time and I loved how easy it was!
