escape from utah

Danny's dad and his girlfriend Pam came to visit us! I found them a lovely little apartment right next to Union Square on airbnb to stay in since all we have room for is an air mattress on the floor.

They wanted to escape the Utah heat which is particularly horrible in July.

We played sightseers...

First up, Alcatraz. It was kind nippy that day! I was so, so glad that my camera got fixed before we went. I've missed it so much!

The model of Alcatraz is pretty cool.

Did you know that the island is also a bird refuge? Check out the fluffy baby seagull! He hatched a few days earlier.

I've never seen a seagull from above before.

Afterwards, we walked up to Ghirardelli Square for some hot fudge sundae's.

This is the first time I've been here, lame right? I'm lazy. I don't like driving up here.

It looks peaceful and calm, but it was windy and cold and wiiiiiindy.

The fort was pretty cool.

On a trip to the mall- we showed them the amazingness that is Beard Papa cream puffs.

They had so much fun- of course so did we! It was fun playing tourist!
