San Fran~~~

Day Two was San Fran!! My mom, along with Parker had never been to San Fran before, and my dad hadn't been there since he was five or six, so they were like newbies going to San Fran.  We drove over the Golden Gate bridge, went to Fort Point where we took some great pics and got a great view of the bay, the city and the bridge.  We went down Lombard Street, which looks like this....

It is crazy to drive down and there are people everywhere.  It is fun to experience though and the houses are beautiful!! Amilee kept saying wow and whoa. She loved it. We then headed over to Pier 39 and Fisherman's Wharf when we enjoyed delicious sour dough sandwiches and soup and were able to walk through the shops and see all the Street performers. There are a couple of guys that spray paint these really awesome pictures. Here is an example of one:

sorry it is so little, but these guys are awesome.  Then of course, there were a few bands and gold and silvermen and it is fun to see all the people there too!! There are also the sea lions at the end of the Pier!! The sea lions have taken over these docks and have been there for over ten years.  Here is a pic of them:

It is funny to watch them because they fight and bark at each other and knock each other off the docks. There weren't this many there while we were there because they were off mating, but this is normally what it is like.  

We also drove around looking at the beautiful and different architecture and went to North Beach for dinner. North Beach is the italian district of San Fran, so it smells awesome there and all the food is so good. We enjoyed awesome pizza and pasta for dinner and delicious gelato for dessert! It was a fun trip.  We really enjoyed it. 
The pics are in the next blog!!
