San Francisco

Both babies napped all the way to San Fran so we decided to drive over the bridge first thing.  Then of course we woke them up (Thea didn't take) so we could snap their pics with the bridge.  Jones has super grumpy face however he LOvED the city.  He loves going downtown in Indy too so it's similar.  
 We snapped some selfies then drove to the city to find lunch.  We should have planned parking better because every single lot seemed full and spot taken we ended up paying like $20 for parking which seems crazy.  Jones loved seeing the sea lions again and he also was completely smitten with every single street performer he literally wanted to watch them all day.
We stopped to buy jones a sweatshirt from a vendor because he dumped his water all over himself and soaked his warmer clothes.  But he was very excited for his California Bear shirt.  He actually walked around for a good bit in the city staying right next to the stroller.  
We went to a national park right in the city and saw some big ships and jones was thrilled to get his stamps for his book the little park ranger was so helpful with him.  then when the wind blew away his stamps he ran after them like chasing a butterfly.  And the sweetest little couple chased it down and got it for him, because we were concerned he might run off the pier.  I wish I had gotten a video.  After that we persuaded him to put it away so we could get a snack.  
We ate Boudin sourdough outside watching the city. 
On the way out of the city I took Kathleen to see the Painted Ladies she actually had no idea what it was she thought I was referring to graffiti and almost didn't get a photo! Oh Kathleen.  We sat in traffic on the way back to San Jose but the babies slept so it was all good.  Next time we visit we will remember NOT to park near the wharf and to bring an extra sweatshirt for the kids who no doubt will need a change of clothes.
