We love San Francisco!

It had been a long time since I was in San Francisco.  It was probably back in 2000 or so.  And Bobby actually lived in San Francisco before, so it was nice having someone that knew their way around (for once! Haha, just kidding honey :-)

We wanted to see Muir Woods National Monument but by the time we arrived at the park, there was only street parking waaaaaaaaaaay down the street.  So we opted for Muir Wood beach instead.  Not like the boys minded it one bit!
Charlie as busy trying to create his little stack of rocks:
There was a little see-saw and Daddy and the boys were very proud getting it all balanced with rocks on the one side:
Good morning again, San Francisco!  I don't think you can get tired looking at the bridge.  Well, perhaps if you had to drive in traffic every day then maybe :-)
Charlie being silly in the car:
Okay, heading down Lombard Street - the famously crooked street.  But according to Bobby, Vermont street is actually more crooked. And after reading up on it, Vermont street is indeed more crooked. Perhaps Lombard is more visited because it has more turns and is paved with red bricks compared to just regular concrete on Vermont St.
Then, off to Ghiradelli square.  It didn't take long for the boys to get a toy each:
Ice-cream and milkshake for lunch!  Charlie is busy trying to eat a cherry:
And then, along the walk close to Fisherman's Wharf.  People are actually swimming in the water!!!
Then, to see the cable cars. The lines were quite long to get on it, so we opted out.  Thankfully Graham and Charlie were not too upset about that:

Day 2 and we're back at Muir Woods National Monument.  This time we made sure we arrived early.  So early that we got "Rock Star" parking and we didn't have to pay!

These Redwood trees are so BIG!
The boys learned something new.  Here they are counting the rings on the stump of a tree that had fallen over:

Family photo!

And finally on Day 3, a friend of mine - Rebecka, joined us for breakfast in Fort Baker, Sausalito. The food was yummy and it was so good to catch up after so many years.  More than 10??!
Needless to say, after breakfast, Graham and Charlie enjoyed the open space. I wish I could say the same for our noses i.e. Allergies!!!
They were so happy picking flowers:
You just can't take enough photos of the Golden Gate Bridge:
I love this one of ALL my boys! If you're wondering, Graham is holding a huge pine cone!
Yes, yes... another family photo op before we head off to the airport!
Off to Phoenix, Arizona.  Good bye San Francisco!
