Our Neighborhood

Ben and I live in the area known as South Beach/Mission Bay. I want to introduce you to our neighborhood as I continue to discover so much about where we live.

What better place to start than AT&T Park - home to the San Francisco Giants! The ballpark is literally three blocks from our apartment, about a 5 minute walk. We became instant fans. As I write this, the Giants are preparing to take on the Oakland A's tonight. This is a huge rivalry series for us.

We were able to score some free tickets on our second night here and watched the Giants play the Colorado Rockies. We sat in the bleachers with a great view of The Bay.


As I walked to the grocery store one day, low and behold I stumbled upon this company office.

Any gamer knows exactly who this company is and what they create. Married to or friends with anyone who plays these games?

Assassin's Creed....Rainbow Six.....Splinter Cell

They were all produced by Ubisoft. Ubisoft is a leading international developer, publisher and distributor of interactive entertainment products. It has the 2nd largest in-house development staff in the world with 24 studios in 17 countries. You can actually get a job here as a video game tester! Ben is applying as we speak.

I am looking forward to sharing so much more with you about where we live!


  1. Reed is so jealous that you get to watch MLB teams that much. He wants to know when the RAYS might come to play. Hope all is going well.

  2. Hey Jennifer! We just looked at the schedule and the Giants are not playing the RAYS this year. Does he have a second favorite team? We would love for you guys to come and visit - I think you would love it here!! What is your email address? I only had one for Patrick at work.

  3. Will have to ask him second favorite!!! Right now I only see RAYS blue on everything. I am sure that there are some players he would love to see in person. P is in Africa and having a great visit. Hope all is well we pray for you and Ben daily. We are for sure going to plan a trip this calendar year.

  4. Lindsey!!! I'm so pumped to see updates on here. What an awesome thing that you are there!!! Looking foward to more updates on here. Love ya girl.

  5. Wow, I want to go to a game!! How fun! I love getting to see/hear what life is like in SF! love you!
