It’s been a little over week since returning from the fun of spring break. Despite being sick the last few days and my RAW files refusing to open, I’m excited to finally share photos from the awesome time I had in the Bay Area. Like every family trip, our schedule is always jam-packed with things to do; this trip was no different. (e.g. discovering new ice cream places daily) I also had expectations that the weather would be foggy and dreary, but I was pleasantly surprised that we were graced with sunny 70 degree weather almost every day. I have many places I’d love to see the next time I return, but until then, here are some highlights from the trip:
