San Fran 2012!!

We arrived in SF around 6 o'clock at night. Once we got to Jen's of course we had to go and hang out on her roof. Jen has the coolest house. She lives 1 block from Haight street, the location is perfect. 

The next day Cj and I walked down Haight street to do some shopping. I found 2 new cute dresses at Buffalo exchange. After all of our shopping we had to stop and get some burrito's. These burrito's were huge. As you can see below it was as big as my face. Haha
We love shopping down Haight. They have so many different stores. At the end they have an album store, Amoeba's music. They sell all sorts of music, CD's, albums, poster, you name it! Cj absolutely loves to go there! 

Here is Jen's awesome home, baker blue! We love SF!

Jen took us to this bar that was super funky. It reminded me of Beetlejuice, so I liked it. :)

Later that night we went and waited for Dan to get off work at Gitane. While we were waiting, patiently. Jen took some photo's of Cj and I.

Cj trying to be romantic and kissing me in the alley way. But it just looks like he's trying to attack me. I love him.

The next day was our Alcatraz tour. It was so much fun to go down to the wharf and take the tour. It is a couple bus rides down to where we needed to be so we left early.

This is one of the dresses I got at Buffalo Exchange, only $12.

We took a boat to Alcatraz. When you get there you go through all of the rules ect. Then you are able to walk around on your own. Once you get to the prison they have you put on headphones and listen to all the Alcatraz stories. They had A LOT of people there who weren't from the united states. Cj and I were wanting to take pictures together, but everyone we asked to take our picture didn't speak English or knew what we were saying. The cool thing about the tour is with the headphones you move at your own pace. You can stop at certain area's and pause the audio and walk around. Being inside there was kinda spooky. It was FREEZING in there. I probably should have worn leggings b/c it was really windy outside. I did a Marilyn Monroe a couple times with my dress and gave everyone a little show. :/

The city doesn't seem too far from the prison. There were some places that you could look through holes in the wall just to look at the city. Walking through the prison was kind of eerie. Nobody said anything to one another. They had pictures up of some of the popular prisoners. It was weird to look at the pictures and then go the their cell. They told a really crazy story. One of the was the inmates would go crazy on New Year's Eve b/c they could hear all the sounds of the people and parties reflecting off the water. They would hear music and people having fun. I think that enough would be torture. 

One night we were able to go and visit Dan at the restaurant he works at Gitane. He is training to be a bartender. So he showed us some of his tricks. ;) The drinks turned out yummy.

Alie and Whitney drove up from Yuba City to come and chill with us for a couple hours. Then Brian Cj's brother also drove down from Sacramento. It was his 30th birthday and he wanted to come have dinner with us too!

While we were walking back to our car there was a beautiful rainbow. We miss San Fran already!
