San Francisco, part one

February 17, 2008 at 1:42 am 1 comment

We made it to San Fran safely, but not without a little chaos. Remind me to rant about flying later.

Yesterday, we met up with Kevin, Amy, and Peter and headed to Ano Nuevo State Park to see the elephant seals. The weather here is beautiful, making the short 1-2 mile hike even more fantastic. The scenery was amazing – especially for those of us who don’t often see the ocean – and we got surprisingly close to the elephant seals (as in, 5 ft close).

Hanging out with the Davis-Ross family is especially fun… Peter is absolutely adorable, smiley, well-behaved, happy, etc., and Kevin and Amy are pretty great parents (aside from being fun on their own – but it’s all about Peter now, right?). It’s amazing to see how much Peter has changed in the few weeks since we met him at the Minneapolis airport. He’s much bigger now and has greatly improved his crawling skillz. (yes, skillz with a “z”). He giggles and plays and eats solids with his own two hands (although, to be fair, we didn’t have the opportunity to really put these skills to the test last time we saw him).  Have I mentioned how absolutely adorable he is!?!

Today, we headed down to the Monterey Bay Aquarium to see the fishes. Jason was disappointed that the great white shark that was on exhibit was no longer at the aquarium, but overall, we were pleased. I think Peter was amused by the sea creatures, too, and he was sooo good all day, despite not having a nap. We ate lunch and walked around near the aquarium (on the beach!), and then headed back to Mountain View. We ate dinner at a nearby brewpub – the Tied House – and I give it 2.5 stars (out of 5). It was okay, but nothing overly impressive.

On the agenda tomorrow: church, downtown San Fran, and the zoo. A bit ambitious? Stay tuned.

    Looks like you had a great time…what a cutie-pitutie, must have been hard to leave. Jason looks so natural with children….(whoops, starting to sound like Grandpa Perry!)
