Kalifornia - Day 1 & 2

That's how they say it now, you know. The govenator renamed it. Well we have had a fairly jam packed week so far. We flew in via JetBlue, how come we had the only row in the plane with the TVs not working?

Oh well, we amused our selves with cross stitch and Rob's card tricks, oh and of course, naps! The flights were on time in fact I think we even got in a little early. My sis and her man picked us up and we went directly to In and Out Burger. Can't come to CA without stopping there huh? Then is was out to "the crick" to jump in the pool! Dinner was ham, scalloped potatoes (both done on the grill) and salads. My mom makes the best salads!

The next day we were off to San Francisco. We saw great and amazing stuff starting with lunch at Boudin's Cafe with their famous sourdough bread. Then to the Musee Mechanque to play mechanical games, take photo booth pictures and make lots of squished pennies. Then we walked over to Pier 39 and first visited the sea lions, they rock! We then strolled through the tons of tourist trap shops and bought souveniers and jewlery, yay! Afterwards we hit the Aquarium of the Bay and all sported their lovely "Save The Bay" crowns as we wandered the exhibits (pictured above). We walked through the giant tank tubes seeing all sorts of bay and sea animal life. We were able to pet some sharks too. We then headed out to Crissy Fields, a beach near the Golden Gate Bridge, saw Haight & Ashbury and headed out to dinner at the Spaghetti Shack (apparently featured on one of Rachel Ray's shows).

When we got back to "the crick" we went night swimming!
