The family packed up last week for a little spur of the moment trek over to San Francisco. It's only about an hour and a half away so it's really not much work getting there and we can get there and back on less than a tank of gas so it was a perfect idea. Plus I figured out we had almost enough points for a free room in Union Square through our Hilton card, so I shelled out a little extra money to purchase our necessary points and voila, a 4 star room in the heart of the city for the price of a Best Western in Fresno...HEHE. I shall start off our photo tour with the necessary Cable Car shot!
Our first stop was the exploratorium. It was really fun but pretty crowded for a Wednesday. Lot's of summer camp people I guess, and a lot of tourists. So we stayed and played for a few hours and then we went back to our hotel.
We checked in and got settled and then we headed out for Fisherman's Wharf. Apparently both Jason and I thought the other had the camera and neither of us did, so no photo's from our night of walking around, eating at Aliotto's, or hitting Ghiradelli Square.
The next morning we got up and went to Union Square, which was a block from our hotel. We went to Macy's and up top is the Cheesecake Factory where we had an early lunch. Then we walked around a bit and ended up buying books at Borders. We had an appointment in Brisbane to keep at 2 so we took off from the city about 1. it was a really fun little getaway! And the kids loved the change of scenery and pace of life.
