The beginning of October is my all time favorite weekend in the Bay! In addition to it being Daddy Beetle’s birthday (Happy Birthday), it is the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival, which is a free music festival in Golden Gate Park where you can picnic, BYOB, bring your dogs and is super family-friendly.
on weekends, we like to get out of the house and explore the city. With the Saturday morning farmers’ market being a quick train ride away, we usually kick off Saturdays with a trip there for breakfast and snacks.
Right outside the farmers market is a huge playground that I’ve been wanting to take Henry. Last time we went, he was awake so we laid down a blanket and played in the sunshine.
Because I’ve been away on work travel, I was needing some 1:1 time with Mr. Henry Hayes! After a few hours of work, we headed to downtown San Francisco to play tourist for a day and stroll around in the sunshine.
We played with leaves in Washington Park in North Beach. We said HELLO to the sea lions at Pier 39. We got a coffee in Fisherman’s Wharf. We looked at the boats in the Bay and snapped photos of Alcatraz Island. In short, we had an AWESOME day.
