Memorial Day Weekend in Sausalito

In anticipation of a weekend with the Grandparents, we took the kids to Sausalito to scout some yummy spots and pick up some flowers to spruce up the house for their big arrival!

Stop #1. Nancy Ann Flowers. They are somehow the best, freshest, cutest, and most inexpensive flowers in Marin County. We walked out of here with enough for medium bouquets for under $20! Thanks to Kerry for telling us where to go!

Stop #2. Cibo for a yummy snack. The shortbread cookies were to die for – even Thacher wanted some!! The back room used to be a seperate shop, but they recently bought it and it’s a fantastic spot for birthdays and other functions – like Lainie getting cookies with us! The first time we came here, I was interning in San Francisco during grad school and Marley was 9 months.  Zander loved the Prosciutto Panini so much, it was our first brunch spot when we finally moved a year and a half later!

Stops #3-7. Our favorite toddler haunts are the Discovery Museum and Southview Playground, which is Marley’s favorite playground, with a view of San Francisco from the Sausalito hills. Favorite adult haunts are Heath Ceramics, where you can find fantastic deals on seconds, as well as their signature line of ceramics; and, the Spaulding Wooden Boat Center, where you can stop in to see how a boat has been made for hundreds of years, or even charter their boat for an afternoon!

Stop #8. Bar Bocce is the perfect spot for an afternoon/evening cocktail and an appetizer with or without kids.  There’s a small beach where older kids can play at while you sit with your date around the fire pit and enjoy. There is a real Bocce court directly behind me that’s beautifully lit in the evenings. This is especially great for those notorious San Francisco ‘summer’ days..

    It’s fun to read your blog Liv. After five and a half years of frequent trips to SF, I’m seeing it in a whole new dimension. Watching your kids enjoying themselves adds the icing on top! Thanks.
