SAN FRANCISCO

I recently returned from San Francisco. I had never been there before and it was a lot of fun. I went with my cousin Troy's wife and her sister Megan.
We went down to Pier 39 and Fisherman's wharf. This is one of the first things we saw and we thought it was hilarious!

There was some beautiful views there. I didn't buy any of the fruit but I wanted too! We did eat French Crepes though and they were yummy! We also had clam chouder in sourdough bread bowls! They were excellent!

I really liked this shot because it showed the fun activity around and the street car in the background.

We made the trip out to Alcatraz. I didn't realize it is a National Park. It was interesting to see. There was actually a audio guided tour of the jail cell. That was good because then it told some of the fact and stories of the place.

Of Course we went for a Trolley ride! It was almost like a rollercoaster ride because of the rolling hills that they go up and down.

Oh, Ghirardelli Square! This was on the agenda but when we ended up there was kind of an accident. We were actually just going for a Trolley ride and this was the last stop. We had wonderful ice cream and bought some delicious chocolate!

This is Lombard street. It was kind of fun to see. There are people that live along it which I think would be really annoying since most of the people driving down it are just tourists. I kept thinking we were going to see an accident in the intersection above it because of all the people that didn't really know what they were doing or where they were going.

And finally we got to see 'Wicked'! It was really good! I read the book which I wouldn't really recommend but at the same time I was glad I had. There were a lot of differences but I felt like I knew better what was going on because of reading it.

Cool! I was going to text you about this the other day and, well, you know how it gets with little children. I've always wanted to go to San Fran and still want to after seeing your pictures. It looks like you had fun! Save me a piece of chocolate! And I'm glad you liked Wicked. I loved it and pretended I was in the show for a while after seeing it. Ok, so I pretended I was in the show even before I ever saw it, just when I was alone in my car. And could sing really loud. Anyway, see ya soon!

I am so jealous. I was supposed to go to San Francisco 2 years ago for my birthday but was pregnant instead. I'm so glad I have Cayson but I wish I would have been able to go and see the sites. You went everywhere I wanted to go and saw WICKED. I still haven't seen it and have been dying to for years. Now when I go I'll just have to ask you questions about what is best to do while there.

Looks like a fun trip. I'm glad you enjoyed your time there. I still sometimes wish we would have seen Wicked on broadway when we were there, but at the same time, I don't have any regrets about seeing Les Mis either. Just wish we could have seen both somehow- although I know that was not possible. =) Someday I'll get another chance to see wicked, I'm sure.
