The Parentals

A couple weeks ago Betsy's parents came to town as they often do. Apparently they love driving along Interstate 80 and the great barren state of Nevada. We were excited to have them because they brought the sunshine to our often foggy Inner Sunset neighborhood.
We decided to take on a quick driving tour of the city. Our first stop was Golden Gate Park and the de Young Museum. The museum was packed and expensive but to our surprise the observation tower is free! We were so excited. Here is Sue and Ernie!

They were really excited about the fantastic view of the park and surrounding city.
Betsy is so giddy at the view!
Ernie and Sue were so excited there was no fog for their trip.
We then walked to the Conservatory of Flowers.
All that walking made us hungry so we drove to the Embarcadero to Houston's for an early dinner. You've got to try their prime rib french dip. So yummy! After dinner we toured Pacific Heights and other various neighborhoods until we ended up at the Golden Gate Bridge!
We stopped to take some photos and enjoy the sun!
Betsy is such a good photographer!

We then headed to the ocean and back home where we watched a movie and relaxed.

Then next day we went to church then had brunch at Park Chow. We decided to visit Betsy's older brother that lives in Redwood City for the afternoon. We relaxed and bbq'd and were treated to Sadie the wonder beagle. She loves to peel oranges!

apparently she bites off one end and sucks the insides out.
The next day Betsy's parents drove to Chico to visit her brother John and head back to SLC. We were sad to see them go. We were glad they were able to spend a couple days with us in our new apartment and be chauffeured in our new car. Come back anytime Ernie and Sue.
