Weekend Adventures!

I had such a great weekend - a much needed break from the stress of work and school!

Saturday was hot and sunny, so we headed down to Lands' End and climbed around the Sutro Baths {old ruins of saltwater baths from the late 1800's}.

Here's Dannon doing a bit of bouldering {does anyone else see the Lost resemblance?}

On Saturday night we wanted to see the Olympics but neither Dannon or I have a tv, so we headed down to our local pub and watched it on the big flat screen. This turned out to be pretty awesome actually because the DJ was playing all these great songs from the 80's which made perfect soundtracks for the winter olympics. Eye of the Tiger came on just as the Speed Skating finals started... yup, it was epic! :)

Then on Sunday we went down to the great SF Pillow Fight! I decided that it was more fun to watch than participate because the crowd was packed and I'm so short that my head was about the same height as everybody else's elbows. But it was still fun to take a few swings, cough out some feathers, and observe the madness.

Everytime a pillow exploded there was much rejoicing.

The Pillow Fight happens every year on Valentine's Day at 6pm in front of the Ferry Building, so mark your calendars for next year!

Here's the video from last year's Pillow Fight. ...Oh the insanity!

How was your weekend?


  1. I wish my weekend involved a pillowfight - that looks like the best fun! Hope it wasn't too sore!

  2. Umm, yeah, I totally see the LOST resemblance!

    Sounds like such a fun weekend. I'm jealous of the warm, sunny weather. We had sun, but it was still pretty chilly. You saw our photos... our weekend involved a lot of chocolate and cupcakes. It was great.

    We are loving the Olympics, right here in our home province! We're a short ferry ride away from the chaos of Vancouver, so it's very exciting. The men's downhill skiing last night was awesome! Especially when Canada won the gold medal!

    You San Franciscans are always having so much fun. That pillow fight looks like a blast. A big, feathery, blast...
