Weekend Round-Up: Around the Bay

Gorgeous weather this weekend! Hot but with a nice breeze to keep us from melting.

On Friday, Rob and I walked home and then took the bike to Civic Center to register for Bay to Breakers. We had a mellow dinner of leftover lasagna.

The next morning, we had our usual oatmeal and coffee breakfast before taking the bike out for a spin. A quick run to the post office before pedaling out to the Legion of Honor. This little museum is one of my all-time favorite places.

After our visit to the museum, we swung by the market and picked up goods for lunch at the beach.

Back home in the afternoon with a big load of fresh produce. I made potato salad for Sunday and came up with the idea for my costume. Using an old scrap of green fabric, a headband, some construction paper and hot glue, I made a full Christmas tree get-up.

Jackie came over at 8:00 and we made her an impromptu reindeer costume. Dinner of turkey tacos with guacamole. A quick run to the store for supplies and then to bed pretty early.

The next morning, we woke up at 6:45 (!) to get ready for Bay to Breakers. We met up with the rest of our Christmas-team downtown:

We participated in the tortilla toss at the start and walked up with the 60,000 person crowd through the hot city. This was our fourth year at the "race" and it was as fun as ever. Our costumes this year were a hit, especially with the kids.

We made it the 7+ miles to the ocean in three in a half hours. For once, it was warm enough at the beach for a quick dip. We took a very crowded train back to the neighborhood and had lunch at Chow. Naps at home and a relaxed evening.

The race was so much fun to watch - your husband must have been so hot in that santa costume!
