We spent a glorious Valentine's Day celebrating my nephew's first birthday in Tilden Park this year! Spending the day together as a family, outdoors in beautiful weather in the gorgeous Berkeley hills was the perfect way to celebrate February 14th. There was a fair amount of chill in the air when we first arrived, but in no time the sun was shining and we had an amazing view of the entire San Francisco Bay.
After all the children enjoyed a ride on the little train, we headed to the carousel for some more fun and a picnic lunch. The children enjoyed the carousel a lot; I however, found it a bit overwhelming. All that spinning - yikes!
On the way out of the park, we stopped to enjoy the stunning views once more before heading home. The children were asleep in their car seats before we even exited the park, which is always a sign of a successful day out.
I can't wait to share the details of Valentine's Day Part Two, which was a different sort of outing entirely. Until then, happy Monday, all!
