I don't think I've ever arrived in San Francisco so early, while it was still dark - and I know I haven't seen the new bridge in the dark. The lights are beautiful. The kids actually really liked it too - I thought they might be too darn tired to even notice.
Speaking of which, we thought they'd sleep at 5am on the way to San Francisco, but nope. Not one minute of sleep for all three kids. Boo!
But the most exciting part was seeing Jen cross the finish line!! We got ourselves all set up right before she crossed, so we could cheer her on before crossing. But there were SO MANY people (like 20,000 many), so she couldn't hear us. Regardless, I was happy to see it anyway!
Connor was so excited and kept saying he saw Auntie Jen win her race!
Her Mama would be so ridiculously proud; that is for sure. Jen's mom had a way of taking even the most simple event and making it a party - she just loved to celebrate! I'm certain she was celebrating in Jen's honor as much, if not more, than we were celebrating here on earth.
But, Daddy and I had fun. You just have to laugh - or you'll cry!
Poor babes were just so darn tired. Thankfully, for all of us, we were home around lunch time and everyone took fantastic naps!
All in all, it was well worth it to see Auntie Jen run her race and I'm glad we could all be there!
