Above: Catherine, our dear friend who was Ashley's occupational therapist when she was little. Check out her therapy in San Carlos.
We've spent the past week in the San Francisco area. My book signing here was on Monday, but my next event in Ashland, OR isn't scheduled until this Friday. So, that meant we got to spend extra time here with friends.
We arrived in SF on the 10th and stayed with our friend who was Ashley's occupational therapist back when we all lived in Maryland. Andy spent most of Friday catching up on his client work. The rest of us went out for girl-time.
On Saturday Andy and Zoe drove to the Alternative Press Expo (where Zoe met one of her favorite comic book artists), while the rest of us went to Cuisinett (YUM) in San Carlos and a local art and wine festival. That evening we switched houses, staying with dear Colorado friends who also moved to the Bay area.

I also took a short video that you can see HERE.

For dinner we visited Underdog Organic, an organic hot dog place not far from the bookstore. They have a wide variety of sausages, and they are very gluten-free-friendly. I would go there all the time if we lived here.
