For our second morning we ate yummy things we had picked up at the Boudin bakery from the day prior. Each kid picked a turtle sourdough roll, and I picked out chocolate raisin bread for the adults. After breakfast we headed out for the day!
Twin Peaks and got a wonderful panoramic view of the entire city. There were tons of tourists but it still felt nice and peaceful. The kids had fun pointing out buildings we spotted the day before.
One of the few entire group photos from the trip, thanks to the college kids standing next to us.
Haight and Ashbury area. This was a stop mostly for me. When we came the last time, I was a little disappointed, not sure why, just was. This time however was a much better experience. Because we got there around 10 and before most places opened, we got two on street parking spots.
Grateful Dead house. Whoever owns it now has a gate at the bottom of the stairs making it impossible to sit and get a picture on them. (They also have a camera watching the stoop) So I made due with having my picture at the gate instead.
Kingdom of Dumpling. This place was a tiny tiny little place, but man was that food delicious!!!! D was still being a bit of a grump, and didn't want to try any new foods. Adam took her for a little walk and when they got back she was in a much happier mood. We feasted on steamed and fried dumplings, tea, chicken chow mein, garlic green beans, beef pancakes, and hot soup dumplings. Everything was so good, I am still dreaming of them!
After that we decided to go drive over the Golden Gate Bridge. D fell asleep the first time over the bridge. We turned around, headed up to an amazing look out to see the entire bridge from a distance.
We then headed back across to the other side of the bridge and to go check out the Presidio. L really had fun checking out where the old giant guns were once perched along the coast. D had fun just being able to climb and run around a bit.
