We spent yesterday exploring Alcatraz. This was our second visit and we had the most perfect weather for it. Last time we visited was over Summer years ago and it was freezing. This time I packed jackets and beanies for everyone but we didn't need them! Got to love San Francisco's crazy seasons! Have you been to Alcatraz before? It's really such an amazing place to visit. You can check out all the fun in my stories.
Another pic from our late afternoon walk on Bay Farm Island. It’s one of those places I never even knew existed even though we’ve lived in the Bay Area for six years! The views over the city were lovely but kind of hidden in the fog in this pic. P.S. Don’t you think this would make a great album cover? You know, when my kids start some sort of Hanson-like band 😂 P.P.S. No creepy baby dolls in the background this time 😂😂
A few weeks back we explored Bay Farm Island and discovered Fort “Awsome” along the beach. It was pretty awesome, but I’m not so sure about that doll 😂
We’ve been making sweet candy filled ornaments to give as gifts - although it’s pretty tempting to eat them all ourselves! Lola picked these delicious cupcake bites, pink grapefruit sours and sour gummy octopus candies to fill the ornaments - and to snack on while she worked! These ornaments make a sweet gift, but you know what we be an even sweeter gift? A subscription to @candyofthemonth!

I figured it was about time things started looking festive around here, so today we bought ourselves a Christmas tree from a local tree lot. We usually like to visit a tree farm in the countryside and make a day of it, but both Ava and Mathilde have been feeling unwell so sticking closer to home was a much better idea. Our tree is little, but it’s just the perfect size for our tiny living room. The girls are looking forward to decorating it tomorrow. Have you decorated for the holidays yet?

Fun adventures call for tasty snacks! What’s your go to snack for the kids when your out adventuring? We recently discovered @happyfamily Happy Kid Fruit & Oat Bars and they’re a hit with the kids. They come in tasty flavors and are made with wholesome organic ingredients and no added sugar. The banana and chocolate flavor gets a big thumbs up. Swipe to see 😊 Check out the link in my profile to shop! #thisishappy #ad
When it snows in Berkeley you’d better believe that every kid in town is out there playing in it! Ok, so the snow came from a snow machine rather than from the sky but it was still just as fun, if a little crowded. All the fun from today’s Snow in Berkeley festival will be up on the blog soon. Stay tuned for more!
Happy birthday to my bestest friend in the whole world! You’re now officially old @phillips_kylie - just like me 😂 Wish we didn’t live on different countries/continents/hemispheres, but least we’re on the same planet! Here’s to being old farts and hoping for more catch ups in fun locations. 😘
