I went to Britex Fabrics. It is 4 floors of fabric and sewing notions. I bought some fabric to make the girls a dress for this fall. We left Market Square and went down to another viewing area for the Golden Gate Bridge. This was at the bottom of it on the Bay. I was able to get some great pictures from here. We then went back up to the highway level of the bridge and walked out over the water. As we were leaving the fog was rolling in. On our way to the airport this morning the fog was like rain on the car window. Aunt Betty said it was not to think today.
Raymond at Flax
Through out the day Saturday about 6 or more groups of people asked Raymond to take their picture. Aunt Betty and I were about to open a photo station and charge people a dollar to take their pictures.
We once again got up at 3:30 to go to the airport to come home. When we came out of the airport terminal to get to baggage claim we saw our little girls wanting for us. Dennis and Leslie brought our girls to meet us. I was sooo happy to see them. Allie kept giggling and Abby had a huge smile on her face. They would not let us go. Allie told me that the next time we go on a plane she wants to go as well. When I asked Abby if she wanted to go on a plane she said no, I don't like planes, I like cars. She sure did like watching them take off and land.
I am in the process of uploading pictures to my blog so keep checking the posts below of pictures.

We saw California Redwoods as well today. We went up Mt. Tam thru the Redwoods and an area that was covered with so many trees that is was dark and had much cooler temps. The houses built there, once again, were built into the side of the mountain and one that was for sale was a mere million dollars!!!! The area had great views of Marin County and at times you could see the City.
This is one of many house built into the side of Mt. Tam. This is from the same rode that goes to the drive way of this house. The houses are all multi-story high and built among the giant Redwoods. These are all 2nd planted redwoods as the original ones where used to rebuild San Fransisco after the earthquake of 1906.
We stopped on the side of the road and Raymond picked a blackberry and to home we came.
Tomorrow we off back into the city for one more day before we head home on Sunday. I sure do miss my girls!
Tomorrow we are going to Napa Valley or Sonoma and back into the City on Saturday.

When I got the girls home this afternoon I went to pull out the jeans to show the girls and Abby asked me "what you make us?" At least she said us and not me.

Abby & Allie were outside playing on the front porch Saturday while Raymond was painting. A few minutes later they come in whining. Abby looks at me and says, "I'm mad at Dad!"
Me: "why are you mad at dad?"
Abby: "He made us come inside."
Me: "why did he make you come inside?'
No response to this.....I wait a few minutes and she comes back to me and the conversation starts all over exactly the same way, except for...
Me "why did he make you come inside."
Abby "Allie broke the bunny."
Sure enough Allie chipped the nose on the outside garden bunny. I knew if I waited long enough someone would tell what happened.
Second Funny Story:
At 5:00 am this morning, Allie comes into our room and says she is tired. I get her back in bed. She is up again and a third time. By now I am done with this game. I tell her to go to bed and if she gets up again, she will get a spanking. I walk her to her room , she lays down and looks at me and says "It's too quite." It should be, it is 5:30am!! I turned on her music and off to sleep she went.

Abby - she did not spend much time in the water today. When I asked her about it she said she was afraid of the monster in the water. I am not sure what she was talking about.
I tried & tried to get Abby to sit down by Allie and take their picture together. Abby would have nothing of it. I have this great project I wanted to do with a picture of both the girls....I am not sure what picture I will use now. When I finished my project I will post it. It may be a while since I have to order the pictures from Shutterfly.
"That is my favorite." Everything is her favorite- no matter what it is!
"I want chicken, fries, ketchup and a sprite."
"My friends be there?" - she is too young to worry about this.
"I have to....."
"I need a snack." Me-"What do snack do you want?" Abby-"I want some grapes"
"Momma, I do it."
I need a Sprite.
At bedtime, "I watch Wuzzby." or "we read stories"
"Do that again."
While in the pool - "Mommy, I dive." and "I dunk mommy. Ready, hold your nose."
"Mommy, I watch Hairspray movie"
"More apple juice"
"Mommy, get up, suns up, mommy. I watch TV."
"I tired" to this I reply "just because the sun's up, does not mean you have to get up."
"Momma, I do it."
"I need Pepper drink." followed by "I get a straw."
I have more written down but these are the ones I have come up with our the past few days.

Mickey greeted us at the door.
There was also a balloon guy there....we could hardly keep Abby in her seat. We told her she had to eat her dinner before we could go see him. Here are the hats he made for the girls.
