We took a family trip out to San Francisco for Carole and Joey’s wedding. We added a few extra days and enjoyed some of the San Francisco sites. Bode especially loved the Golden Gate and Bay bridges. He was drawing pictures of them back in our hotel rooms every day. We stayed near Fisherman’s Wharf and Pier 39 for the first two nights. We walked around and saw sea lions, ships, bridges and other fun stuff. We took some time to go to Muir Woods and play around the giant redwoods. The kids loved climbing into the trees. We stopped at Muir beach on the way back and Courtney ended up falling down when the water came up to her unexpectedly. She got very wet and we had to head back to get her dry clothes. She still talks about “swimming” in the Pacific Ocean. Alcatraz was cool to visit. After taking a break for wedding stuff, we headed to Santa Cruz for the day and the kids rode some of the rides over and over and over and over. We wore them out. Put them in the car and we drove back up to San Francisco to kill time before our flight. We drove around and caught some more sights that we had missed…like Chinatown, Lombard Street and some other random downtown driving. Eventually we ended up back at the airport only to learn that our 12:45 am flight was delayed until 1:41 am! Plugged in the dvd player and the kids watched movies while we waited. They were great and the red-eye home was very quiet while everyone slept. I put some pictures from the trip out in the photo gallery, but I broke the camera early in the trip so they are limited.
