On Monday the girls took the BART and then the Cable Car into San Fran and visited the Britex fabric store...Fishermans Warf and Pier 39...
Christy and I stayed back at the house for some 'down time'..and managed to somehow finish off a whole bottle of champagne (we enjoyed memosa's for breakfast heeheheh).. took a walk to see the Llama's that lived down the road:
Enjoyed a dip in the hottub..and just rested and relaxed the entire day!!!
And sadly.. we all had to leave and say goodbye til next year... Im counting the days.. I miss them all so much already! Its an amazing bond that we will cherish and remember forever!
