San Fransisco with the Hadley's

This past Monday Rick and I along with Mark and Teri Hadley headed to fabulous city of San Fransisco to check out the location for our up coming Mission trip. You know, we only live 2 1/2 hours away and it has been YEARS since we have been. We had an awesome time driving around and we even got to do a little sight seeing.

This is a view from Pier 39 in The Fisherman's Wharf. Sea Lions seem to hang out here year round.

We got to drive down the famous Lombard Street. It's the "curviest" road in America. It was a little scary in our truck! But we made it - the poor woman on the sidewalk almost didn't! :)

The youth group will be staying in a hotel in Mill Valley which means they will get to cross the Golden Gate Bridge EVERY DAY!! Well, we had to try it out. You know, make sure it's all safe. :)

This is Rick's boss Mark and his fabulous wife Teri. They are a really fun couple.

A view of the city from one of the MANY steep hills in the city. YIKES!

We found the location for our missions headquarters and discovered this really under-whelming playground. Well again, for the benfit of the students that will be serving, we just had to make sure everything was on the up & up. ;)

How Fun!!!! It looks like you two cute couples had a wonderful time in that fabulous city! Driving over the Golden Gate is one of my favorite things to do. We always have to roll down our windows and breathe the air. The kiddos are going to have a blast rebuilding that playground.
