Family Day Out: San Francisco with Picasso

It was a very stimulating weekend for the Fam here in Northern California. We started at the deYoung museum in San Francisco where they had a fabulous Picasso exhibit. That Picasso sure was an interesting fellow. I mostly like his older work. Like this Still Life with a Pitcher and Apples (photo courtesy of this website), that he did in 1919. In his later years he got pretty outrageous. Like this one painting of a girl going into a cabana. We thought it looked like a horse a camel or a llama, depending on who you asked. It was pretty cool to see his works, though. When we were done trying to figure him out (I think we all really enjoyed it), we wandered around the rest of the museum. I loved the Inuit art best of all, I think. I also enjoyed the views from the Hamon Tower.
It was beautiful.

Then we drove through the city. I enjoyed some of the architecture right from the comfort of my car! (I wasn't driving.)

Then! My favorite part of the day, even better than PICASSO was visiting The Dot's office. I can't say too much about it on account of they do a lot of secret stuff in there, but here is a picture of her desk! (It's the one on the left)And here is where she would hang up her bike if she rode one to work. She doesn't, but only because it's 35 miles which includes two bridges.There were lots more cool pics of her office, but I'm afraid of revealing corporate secrets, so these will have to do.

But here is the view from her gym. Is she so lucky? Yes! (She works hard, too, I'm sure. But come on.)

Speaking of bridges, here's what it looks like when you're going over the San Francisco Bay Bridge and you just come out of the tunnel and you're sitting in the back seat because your little boy is six feet tall now, for crying out loud.

It was a very fun day. Luckily, because The Little Boy leaves for sleep-away school soon and we're going to miss him. :(
