April 27, 2009
Monday, F had preschool, M had a tball game and K had soccer practise.
I am worn out just remembering it all.
It was such a beautiful day. F eating lunch with all the girls.I had some fun with editing.The Boys.'Muffin Burger'Creswell . Heusser . WorkmanA's snapshot!THE END! 2 miles each way made for some TIRED kids who all slept on the way home.
We were all excited to get out of the house and out of Dayton. We traveled 5 hours to San Fran and the weather couldn't have been nicer. Everything was so green! I told Brandon, 'We are not going to want to come home!' He disagreed. 'Home is home. I always want to come home.' Well if you put it that way.
We arrived about 5ish. We stayed outside the city in Pleasant Hill. Checked in to our hotel and the kids were dying to go swimming. So we got our suits on and took a dip before dinner. Brandon noticed an Outback Steak House near the hotel...and when we passed it...he said, 'I know where we're eating dinner!' We ate a yummy dinner and then we were all ready for bed. We rose bright and early Friday morning to eat breakfast in the hotel lounge. Then it was off to San Francisco. Our first adventure was a boat ride to...
The kids were so excited to ride on the boat. Especially F, A, and M. They were so cute. F and A pretended they were sailors and were being attacked. They'd duck behind the railing and shoot at other passing boats. Too cute.
After our tour and boat ride we made our way to Pier 39. That was fun. Walking past all the candy shops and souvenir shops we felt like we were at Disneyland. We had lunch at Bubba/Gump's. How fun was that! I have always wanted to eat there ever since I saw their restaurant in Maui. The kids had their lunch served to them in Forrest Gump's fishing boat he named the Jenny. Forrest Gump was playing on the big screen and to get your waiter's attention you had to turn your sign to STOP FORREST. The opposite side said RUN FORREST. So fun. After lunch Brandon bought 2 bags of cotton candy and we let the kids play on a nearby playground.
