150th Italian Heritage Parade

October 8, 2018 No Comments

Randomly we decided to go check out the Italian Heritage Parade in San Francisco this weekend. It was a gorgeous day – the temperature was in the 70s. It is also Fleet Week, so the Blue Angels were flying over us in different formations constantly.

The traffic wasn’t too bad up there. It was quite easy to find parking, much to our surprise. We walked over to North Beach and was able to watch the parade. We were able to grab a bite to eat at Capo’s – which has some of the best food in North Beach. Their tomato salad is simply divine. We also had pizza, but the kids devoured that before I could even grab a photo.

We walked over to Washington Square Park and checked out the auto shows. Tot had fun checking out all the “red cars”. They were all varying years of Ferrari’s. I loved the older models. We crossed the street and went to Giovanni’s to pick up some freshly made pasta.

We trekked over to Chinatown to pick up some fresh produce and stopped at a bakery. We always pick up some sesame balls and egg tarts when we are in the area. We grabbed some noodles and let the kids play at the local playground on the way out.

It was such a fun Sunday. I normally spend my Sundays grocery shopping and setting myself up for the week. It was nice to take a break from it all.

How was your long weekend?

  • This wrap is so beautiful. ⁣

I received Dreamer with a cotton/hemp weft yesterday. This weft is hand dyed by Echo over at @chicibeanz for the collaboration with @appleblossomwovens. ⁣
⁣
The pooling of the hand dyed yarn really makes it looked striped almost. It almost looks like a totally different wrap compared to the black linen weft I’ve been using. ⁣

  • I got surprised with a trip to @Disneyland for Valentine’s Day. It’s so crowded because of the long weekend. There’s even lines for the bathrooms - every bathroom. We haven’t gone on many rides, but we’ve checked out more shows than before and looked around for hidden mickeys. The weather has been perfect too. ⁣
⁣
I hope you’re on some adventures this long weekend. What are you up to?⁣

  • We rarely get to drive over the Golden Gate Bridge. I hate tolls and I also hate driving over bridges, but this was too much fun to not. ⁣
⁣
The kids fell asleep right before we even made it, but I was going to go for it. I’m glad we made a trip out of it, even though the car ended up breaking down. Nobody stopped to help. The few people I did get to ask refused to help 🤷🏽‍♀️⁣
⁣
At least we got to check it out. 🌉
  • Dreamer is a dream. This wrap is gorgeous. I loved being able to test it all weekend in the city. ⁣

  • We got to take photos of @bijoubabywearing Windmills Strawberry! It’s such a great pink, perfect for Valentine’s Day and every other day of the week. It’s merc cotton and extremely supportive. Dumpling is a huge fan of the pink 💕⁣

  • I’ve been looking for any copies of my maternity photos with Dumpling since I suck and I can’t find my copies. @bijoubabywearing was able to find some of me wrapping Tot in Baskerville Boardwalk and I couldn’t be happier. I love the bubbles in this one. @paintingskies did such a great job with this shoot. My family had so much fun with her. ⁣

  • When your friend @koalacuddlesbabywearing  needs shots for upcoming educational material for @happybaby and you drop what you’re doing at @disneyland to check out their onbuhimos 😂💕⁣
⁣
This Marigold onbuhimo was easy to get in the shoulder to shoulder height and pretty comfortable. I might need to snag one. ⁣
