I've been revisiting vacation pics on my phone this morning, and I'm feeling the need to sing Calla's praises. She was a willing and wonderful helper throughout the trip, and I found myself sounding like a broken record telling her over and over how I don't know what we'd do without her! It's no wonder her siblings all think she's the greatest. πŸ’› #latergram #choulifornia

{Video} San Fran Chinatown at dusk is a colorful experience! #choulifornia

Sitting on the pier and enjoying the Bay Bridge lights before we head back for the night. My feet are tired but my heart is happy. 😊❀️ #choulifornia

You know you're on vacation when you're out ordering boba tea with your kids at 11:45 PM. 😁 #choulifornia

We don't get to see them often, so when we do it's always a treat, especially for Calla! #secondcousins #choulifornia

We're soaking up the sunshine on our last full day in Cali. β˜€οΈπŸŒ΄πŸŒΈThis cute little railroad town of Sunol was worth the visit! (Do anyone else's kids feel the need to climb all the things all the time?) πŸ™ˆ#choulifornia

Not even on the plane yet and he's out. πŸ’€ #choulifornia

Action shot while we work on some street food in downtown San Francisco, taken by our lovely Calla. (The other two kiddos are off to the right.) Vacationing and sightseeing with a herd of little ones isn't for the faint of heart, but it's nice to be at this point in our parenting game...where we've figured out how to travel (somewhat) efficiently, we know what we need and what we don't, the kids have a fairly workable buddy system, we're no longer fazed by the looks of disdain and confusion (and occasionally encouragement) at every turn. These are the physically demanding but beautifully overflowing years, and I love being right smack in the middle of them.❀️ #largefamilylogistics #choulifornia

We're wrapping up a fantastic trip and feeling very thankful for our time here in the Bay Area. Until next time, Lao Lao and Lao Ye! ❀️ #choulifornia

{Last minute date night} I suppose when it's your first kidless date in over a year, you might have forgotten how to order for just two people. πŸ˜³πŸ˜‰ #weliketoeat #alot #shanghaitapas #choulifornia

{Sand fight at sunset} β˜€οΈ It was an absolutely gorgeous day. The Natural Bridges State Beach in Santa Cruz is so much fun! #choulifornia

Redwood forests are magical places, especially at dusk.βœ¨πŸŒ±πŸ€πŸƒπŸŒ³βœ¨ (Wishing we could have been here longer, but Cali traffic kicked our collective tail today!) #muirwoods #choulifornia
