I loved watching the kid's reaction as we enter San Francisco... it was fun to share a part of my own childhood with them. To them it's like a foreign country but to me it's like home. My Dad grew up in the Bay Area and most of his family still lives there. Growing up, we spent many a "Spring Flings," Thanksgivings, and golf trips there.
My favorite part of the entire trip was a visit to my Grandma DeRose. It was nice to see where she lives and that she is being well taken care of. She is visited regularly by 4 of her children still in the Bay area and they do an excellent job of taking care of her. It was a little hard to see my "young grandma" actually look like a grandma, but it was reassuring to hear her voice because it hasn't changed at all. And she smells the same....so yummy!
Our Brenna Rose or "Rosie" is named after Grandma (and the late Grandpa Barney) DeRose.
