The City by the Bay

We wrapped up our California vacation by spending Friday in San Fransico. We started off early in the morning, and arrived in S.F around 10am. After driving over the golden gate bridge we headed down Lombard St. The kids got a real kick of of this street, and couldn't believe people actually lived on it.

We went up to Coit Tower on the top of Telegraph Hill. They have a beautiful view of the city.

After finding parking we headed down the "Embarcadero" towards fisherman's warf. We had lunch at Hard Rock Cafe. The younger kids rode the big carosel on Pier 39. We walked around pier 39, and through some shops. We showed the kids Alcatraz Island from the pier, couldn't do a tour with the little kids.

After a long hot(92'and humid) day we hopped back on the street car and headed towards Giants stadium to meet up with Nana & Papa for the ball game. It was hard getting around such a big city with Phoebe and Paxton. We could have definitly seen and done a lot more if they had been older. We did a ton of things that day though, and they held up pretty good.
