Wow, we couldn’t order up better weather if we tried. It was in the low 70′s sunny and an amazing breeze which felt nice since we were pushing around our beh behs in the double stroller. I’m determined to get out and about and share fun experiences with our kids…even at this young age. But it doesn’t mean it’s not work. We were EXHAUSTED when we got home. Yes, Brad and I may enjoy a trip like this a bit more if it was a date without kids…oooooooh yes, but even though it definitely wasn’t relaxing, I really enjoy going out and about with all of them (even with at least 5 dirty diapers, snack pit stops, and transfers from moby wrap to stroller and back again a million times lol!) Those moments where Sean peacefully slept and Samantha was giggling and running around looking at things with her daddy while munching on sweet treats makes it all worth it.
I had all these plans and places to visit (what was I thinking??? I’m seriously a crazy woman sometimes) but in reality we visited the ferry building market place then walked…YES WALKED THAT WHOLE WAY to the Fisherman’s Wharf, which even though it’s only a couple miles one way… with two kids and a double stroller and tons of people in the crowd… it took forever!!!
I absolutely loved the marketplace. We did some shopping and I tried my first oyster ever!!! It was good! I always wanted to try one, but I was always nervous I wouldn’t like it. I learned you are supposed to chew them. I always thought you just swallow them whole, but the guy told me to chew the oyster to really taste the flavors. FYI =)
After putzing around the wharf and eating crispy calamari, I found that mini donut shop that was in my old PICTURE from 2006. They are the same exact mini donuts that come out during the Fall season. I was in heaven. We made the trek back up towards the market place and to the car. Brad and I both collapsed and enjoyed our mexican cokes on the drive home. I really did love this little family trip. Next time the aquarium is on the list of places to visit, but I think we’ll make that the only destination. One place per visit is probably best for a while =)
