San Francisco

We do a lot of these weekend trips when baseball season is on...

2 weeks ago, we were in San Francisco for this


AT&T Park is the my favorite baseball stadium, if you sit on the higher deck, you actually get a view of the bay....

This trip, we sat just right behind the home plate, this is the view we got....


My husband is a great fan of The St, Louis Cardinals, it is cool to get a shot of Albert Pujols... 
He is just an amazing ball player and what you might not know is that Albert is a different kind of ball player, I watched a 60 minutes episode weeks ago, an interview on him and the charity work he did, most of it behind the scene without any publicity, it changed my perspective of a ball player, he puts all those celebrity players like Tiger Woods to shame....
You can read about The Pujols Family Foundation HERE
and watch the 60 minutes episode produced by Draggan Mihailovich HERE 

Anyway.. my San Francisco trip is also for this....


and this..


You don't want to miss the RED and WHITE clam chowder


and boy oh boy, my favorite dessert here.....


how could you not love this...

I was so into my dessert (Parisian Macaroons) that I forgotten that I had my camera in my backpack that day, so I had to borrowed someone else's from the internet... : )

If you do not know yet, we are a huge fan of food net work, especially the series "Best Thing I Ever Ate", Guy Fieri's "Dinner, Drive in and Dives" and "Bobby Flay Throwdown" we actually tracked them and visited the places they recommended..... this is one ...


how can I not have Singapore Chilli Crab when I get a chance???

Look at that smile on my face, you'll know the trip to San Francisco is a GREAT one!!!

Kirsty, It's noon and you just made me so hungry! Love all the pictures! I am an Atlanta Braves fan! but you are right about Pujols being a great player! I would love to go to an Atlanta game. I could have gone to a game when they came to Colorado, I just did not think about it soon enough! Have a wonderful weekend my friend. I have to go craft, I am behind, too much yard work on Wednesday, got nothing done Thursday!
