A Night Away

The weekend after Easter was my friend's bachelorette party in San Francisco, which required a night away from Maddie.  I've spent 2 nights away from her to this point (once for a friend's 30th birthday in October last year when Maddie was about a month old) and once for my birthday in February.  Neither of those occasions has been more than 24 hours and for my birthday it was just from 6pm to about 7am.  The SF trip required much more than 24 hours and I actually had quite a lot of anxiety about leaving her because it would also be my husband's first time watching her by himself over night and he was feeling a little nervous about that.  Maddie did great, Mike did great and I ended up having a fun time with friends. The worst part is that my breasts were VERY engorged by the time I got home despite pumping with a hand pump a few times while I was gone, but it's difficult to find the comfort, time or privacy to pump when you're site seeing in SF and sharing a hotel room with 3 other girls.

Anyway, here are some pics from our trip:

We stayed at the Clift Hotel, this was my 3rd or 4th time staying here, I highly recommend it.  

Having our first glass of champagne!  

All of us on the back of a trolley car :)
