At the end of February we went to San Francisco with Paul for a conference! The 5 hour plane ride went pretty well. The boys slept for part of it. We got to our hotel Sunday afternoon. We had a great view from the 19th floor. Each day we walked around. There was tons of shopping and restaurants all around us. Unfortunately both boys got the flu while we were there:( but we made the most of it... Tuesday night (on my bday) a vendor took us out for a nice dinner. Thursday the kids felt good enough to go to Fisherman's Wharf and The Aquarium at the Bay. We took the trolley to Lombard St and walked to the bay. The boys really enjoyed seeing and touching the sea stars, bat rays, skates, and a shark. They had a couple octopus, small and large sharks and all kinds of fish, eels, jelly fish, some turtles, frogs, snakes. It was a neat place. Then we went back to pier 39 where the sea lions lay on the piers.
The buildings that the conferences were in were about 10 or 15 blocks from our hotel. The boys and I walked down there 2 days. There was a park and a carousel for the kids.
Our last night, Friday, We went to dinner at our hotel on the 36th floor. The view was amazing the 15 minutes we were there... Right after our food arrived Dane threw up all over the floor. I guess he wasn't all the way better yet:(. We went back to our room and started packing. And that's when we heard watering splashing. I assumed it was Dane in turning the water on in the tube, but no it was him playing and sitting inside the... Toilet! You'd think your first thought would be to get him out ours was to take a picture:)
I was nervous for our flight Saturday morning but luckily it went fine!! It was so nice to be home again!
These pictures are totally out of order:)
