San Francisco

We had such a good time in San Francisco. We were only there a day, but definitely packed in a weekend's worth of activities! Our first stop was Japan Town. After an awesome lunch (read about that later), we explored the stores. The monkeys were most thrilled by the huge Japanese book store and the many Japanese toy stores. We also visited a pretty cool origami shop and a manju bakery. The boys bought some cool toys and silly bands of all things!

Next we went to eat some crazy flavored ice cream (read about that later too), and then it was down to Fisherman's Wharf. We spent a good hour in the penny arcade. I've never seen so many old timey games. It was a blast.

We also did quite a bit of walking around. The kids loved running along the bay, and I loved marveling at the people who were actually swimming in it! (There's a swimmers club that meets nearby. They wear wetsuits, FYI.) Other highlights included Jiro losing a tooth, Satchel getting swarmed by Japanese tourists that loved his five finger toe shoes, and eating clam chowder out of sourdough bread bowls.

Too bad we didn't have more time to explore. I love San Francisco!
