Sunday afternoon, we headed into the city to do some things the kids had wanted to do. Starting with Fort Point. Fort Point is underneath the Golden Gate Bridge on the San Fran end. It's free, and the kids love to explore all the dark rooms and stairways. Above is the view from the parking lot.
Myles is not a fan of all the dark nooks and crannies and was attached to one of us for most of the time.
From there we headed to Pier 39. We are used to going at off times since we live here. It's not usually crowded when we go. However, it was super crowded last weekend and we were all feeling a little claustrophobic and irritated by all the invasions of our personal space. We lasted for as long as we could, made sure all 3 kids got to do whatever it is they had been looking forward to, and escaped as quickly as possible.
Myles scored a hat, and he and Sophie rode the carousel.
Emma did some shopping, and then Myles and Em scored some cotton candy.
Then we walked back down to Joe's Crab Shack for dinner, this was the kids choice.
Above is Sophie dancing with the staff, which happens every 30 minutes or so.
We were treated to this amazing view while walking to the car after dinner.
Next, we drove to Swenson's Ice cream parlor, but it was a tiny closet of a shop, full of people, and we were pretty done with people, so instead we took the kids down Lombard.
From there we drove home but stopped at Target on the way. Everyone got new pj's and ice cream sundae fixings. We went home and snuggled in and watched the bull riding on TV with the kids that Brian and I had gone to the night before.
It was a great weekend!!!
