On Saturday, April 18th, we drove to San Francisco to show my niece, Erin, around. We made the mistake of not finding the best parking spot and ending up walking from Pier 15 to Pier 39 and then on to the Cannery and Ghiradelli Square. Oh we were so tired when we got there! Jake had bought baseball tickets to see the Giants play the Phillies and so we had to hop on a trolley and ride the metro system to get back to the opposite side of town. Nathan sqealed in delight when the trolley started and everyone on the car looked at him. I had several comments of "look how cute that little boy is" and the infamous question: "How can they tell a baby that age needs glasses?". I wish that we would have had 2 or 3 days to spend there, but alas, this is the second time in our marriage we've had to do San Francisco in a day! Remember the first time Kath? The oxygen bar... racing back to get on the ferry on time? Freezing in the morning and then by the evening wishing I hadn't brought a sweater to carry? That was such an awesome day!
We had fun at the baseball game and we all were fried. My nose is still peeling from a week and a half ago! Jake loved taking his son to his first professional baseball game and explaining to Ellie that she is going to be like Kayla and play softball. Jake patiently told Ellie all about the positions and how someday he hoped that Nathan would pitch for the Red Sox (its a long shot but like Ryan Shupe's song says "Dream Big"!).
What an amazing and fun day. We can't wait to take our next family vacation to Seattle in June!
