Weekends: Team Effort

Weekends: Team Effort

Another relaxing weekend in San Francisco – these warm, early fall days are the finest the city has to offer! On Friday, Rob and I had dinner at home: penne with mushrooms, kale, almonds and lemon. Slept like babies on our new mattress that arrived Friday afternoon, should have upgraded a long time ago!

On Saturday, I woke up early to get dressed and do my hair before Rebecca’s baby shower. Walked to the Mission to pick up her present – I was still early so I stopped for coffee and cinnamon twists at a neighborhood Italian bakery. Sat at a table on the sidewalk with friendly families and dogs – the city is so different when it’s warm and sunny like this.  The baby shower was excellent – as you’d expect from a party co-hosted by Jordan. We enjoyed a delicious spread of bite sized entrees and desserts in her fresh new studio space.

Walked back home in the afternoon. Rob and I quickly drove down to Palo Alto to give Trent his birthday present – a brand new (hand-me-down) mountain bike. Rob can’t wait to go ride with him.  Back in the city, Rob and I went to his bike racing team’s annual BBQ. Great food – San Franciscans can really do a nice pot-luck when they put their minds to it – and even better company.

Up early again on Sunday to head out for Rob’s bike race at Candlestick park. Jean, Trent and the baby met us there, with Trent racing in his first cyclecross race ever.

Jean and I cheered them on from the sidelines. Little Everette is getting bigger and has a learned how to screech – a fun new trick.

After the race, we drove down to the Mission Rock Resort for oysters, eggs benedict and fancy burgers along the water.

The five of us walked up along the bay to the ballpark – where crowds (and boats and kayaks) were out in force for the Giants’ final game of the season.

Walked back through the UCSF Mission Bay campus and then stopped for ice cream at Mr. and Mrs. Miscellaneous in Dogpatch before parting ways.  Rob and I went on a cleaning spree back at home. I put out the start of the Halloween decorations (thanks Mom!) and walked down the block for a mani-pedi.
