{West Coast Weekend}

We had the most amazing trip to California over the Labor Day weekend. I am just now fully recovering from the time change and just vacation mode. I swear every time I visit my parents in California, whether its Southern Cali, Los Angeles, or San Fran, I would move there in a heartbeat. I'm obsessed with California. Here are some pictures from our very quick and busy mini family vacation.{Airplane shots with the always intriguing Skymall mag}

{First stop: In & Out , every time. To die for.}

{We headed straight for Lake Tahoe and the drive was beautiful. I felt like I was in Colorado, and its crazy to me that this is a ski town, its gorgeous without the snow. We did some shopping, of course, and at one point I was standing in California and Kelly was in Nevada.}

{My mom is quite the gambler, so naturally we stayed at an awesome casino and gambled all night. The family that gambles together...well, we couldn't figure out the rest of that. My Dad isn't too much into the tables(craps, 21, poker), so Kel and I tried our luck at the slots with him. 4 hours later and a few friends made, we won almost $1000. Crazy, I know!}

{The next morning we headed to San Fran, met some of my parent's friends for dinner down at the Fisherman's Wharf, this lobster jumped right out of its tank and attacked}

{Yummy oysters Rockefeller}

{San Fransisco was so cool, literally, it was freezing and there was a ton of fog, so we bundled up and did some quick shopping after we ate }
{Sock monkey monkey hats, way cuter on Kel then me}

{We hit a farmers market/flea market on our last whole day and bought all sorts of food and my dad cooked trout and we got all fancy and drank wine and ate cheese and figs, btw, totally obsessed with this combo now.}

{On our way to the airport the next day we stopped by the cutest winery and ate brunch. We couldn't resist the wine tasting that was going on, even though it was well before noon, so, we did it. Got a little tipsy, those red wines are powerful.}

So much fun, we did fit on one more event, but I will have to save that for a whole other post, it deserves it...
