I was back in the office on Tuesday and was absolutely not complaining about sitting at a desk after the crazy week with my brother and his family.  I headed up to Grace Cathedral mid day.  It's super fantastic:



I got a pic looking down Grant while I was heading back to the office:


After work I went to the gym.  I took body pump which kicked my ass and then rode on a spin bike for an hour.  Then I headed home for dinner and went to bed.  It's nice to be back on my schedule.

I had lots of fun with my brother's family while they were here for a week.  I got up early and went to the gym every morning and rode on a spin bike for 2 hours.  That amount of activity left me completely pliable for the rest of the day.  Mr. Poe came down with the flu Tuesday night and so they went to Berkeley without me but by Wednesday he was feeling better so we left him with the dogs and headed out to the zoo.  The kids had a good time, but our zoo is terrible.  It's in one of the coldest, drizzliest parts of the San Francisco and the older enclosures of the WPA facility seem very small for the size of the animals in them.  Here are the free range humans:


We went to the zoo on the L train because I thought it would take longer:


Friday we went down to the park at Devils Slide.  Highly recommended for guests.  It's cool and breezy but easy to walk around in and there's a lot to see.   We saw whales!





Then we headed down to Stanford to look around.  I love the gorgeous church there:







Saturday we met up with Miss Smith and headed to the De Young.  Mr. Poe had thankfully taken the kids to a movie.  I didn't like the Turner exhibit.  I'm not the hugest fan of painting and I'm especially not crazy about Turner but it's big and impressive so if you do like Turner you should go see it.  I've grown fond of the collection of African and Oceanic art that the De Young has, even though I can't always tell the difference between what's African and what's Oceanic:



Sunday Mr. Poe took the kids to the Academy of Sciences and Sam and Youngran and I went down to the Asian Art Museum to check out the contemporary Chinese painting:



These demons remind me of Ashley Jr and Mimi:


Monday I took them to the airport and they headed to Florida to see mom.  I met Mr. Poe in Fremont so we could drop off the car and we headed home on BART.  We had dinner early and then went to bed at 8.  It was an exhausting week.  The dogs are gonna sleep for a month.

Monday I rode a spin bike for a couple of hours in the morning and then headed down to SFO to pick up my brother and his family coming in from Seoul.  I headed down a little early and watched aircraft landing from a nearby park until their plane landed.  Here they are:


And here are some other pics I took:










I picked up my family and we headed home.  They'd been on a plane for a very long time and didn't want to do much.

Saturday I led the Different Spokes jersey ride out to Tiburon.  We had fantastic weather and a fabulous ride out to Tiburon.  We don't always get glorious weather like we had and I made sure to enjoy it.  I got a couple of pics at the Golden Gate Bridge before we left:

Tuesday I headed up to Grace Cathedral over lunch.  So very pretty inside:


Then I headed down to Union Square and stopped by the terrace at 1 Kearny on my way back to work:





After work I went to a body pump class and then rode on a spin bike for an hour.  I was super beat when I got home and I went to bed early.

I had lots of fun on July 4.  I went to the gym in the afternoon and then met Elliott at the mix for drinks.  After I headed home and then up to Sabeen and Casey's with Mr. Poe to go watch the fireworks.  It was more an auditory experience thanks to all the fog.  We went home early.  Sunday I led a Different Spokes ride down to Tunitas.  It was glorious weather and we had an awesome day.  I got a bunch of pics:










Fabulous day!

Tuesday was walk2werq Monday and I had a fun walk through Japantown and then over Nob Hill.  I went walking again at lunch and headed up to Grace Cathedral which is super pretty and always lots of fun:



After work I went for another walk up over Telegraph and then Russian Hills.  I got a bunch of pics from Telegraph Hill:





Lombard Street:



Then I headed to Ray and Skyler's wedding reception which was SUPER BOOZY and lots of fun.  Thankfully, I only got the one pic:


I stumbled home and went to bed.  I must have been looking really rough.
