Good Night San Francisco!

When the girls came to visit over Easter break, one of the fun things we did was to find this book about San Francisco. Then we used it to find places to visit and take pictures of them there. We felt that that would make it more fun for the kids to remember their trip while reading the book. I just fell in love with this little board book. It is so simple and yet so comprehensive. It includes many of the wonderful sights in The City. And it can be enjoyed by any age.

You can order it online if you are interested in one for your grandkids, kids, or even for yourselves. One went home with the kids and then I ordered one for our guest room. Here are a few pages from it and our corresponding photos.

and tickley feeling in their tummies.

This last photo was not taken by us but is so beautiful and I wanted the girls to see what it looks like at night. This little book, Good Night San Francisco has become a new instant treasure and a constant reminder of fun times with our little grandgirls and Jen. I want us to do the same things with all of the other grandkids when they come to visit.

We sure hated to wave good-bye to the family. But the nice thing is, every single time they come it is really a special time. Thanks Jen and Lowell, for making it happen. And thanks for the heartwarming memories!
