California Trip - Amazing!

Hi everyone! I haven't been out here in a long while. Not sure I ever will be back to blogging again. I am debating about taking down my blog all together. Since the passing of my mom, working outside the home and my son leaving for college, I just don't have any motivation to be creative enough to keep a blog going. We'll see what happens.

Mr. Creative and I did go on a vacation to see his sister in California this month. The first "REAL" vacation we have ever gone on. Usually we go camping or on a weekend retreat but since it was our 20th anniversary year, we decided to spend the money. I was very thrifty with finding deals and coupon codes. Here is the breakdown of our 6 day, 5 night trip.

Southwest Airlines for 2               $515
Hilton Garden Inn in Folsom,CA  $435
Full size rental car (Ford Fusion)  $125
Gas & Spending                         $440

So for under $1500, here is what we saw! Enjoy the pictures!

Napa Valley


San Francisco

Lombard Street


Alcatraz Island (from where we were eating on Pier 39)


Painted Ladies near Alamo Square (I remember these from the TV show Full House!)


San Francisco covered by sun and fog!


All we saw of the Golden Gate Bridge! If we wouldn't have driven over it, I wouldn't believe it was there!


Mr. Creative and I FREEZING in San Francisco!



Old Town Folsom

After eating a HUGE breakfast! Getting ready to hit the antique stores!



Calaveras Big Trees State Park

On our way!


Pictures do not show how HUGE these really are!


Unbelievable! Mr. Creative looks so small to be 6' 2"!


 Stanislaus River


Lake Tahoe

Just amazing!


Fools Gold in the water! 


We took a catamaran ride around the lake! 


Well, hope you enjoyed this little snapshot of our vacation. We had a wonderful time and now Mr. Creative is on a diet!!  We ate very well, or should I say bad????

Have a great week!
