Noah loved his first trip to the city. We ventured over to the Sutro Baths where we hiked, watched the waves and relaxed for a while.
It was there that Noah discovered shadows for the first time. He just kept staring at us, and, what you can't see in the picture is him waving at our shadows too.
Don't worry, Nate has not gained 400 pounds. His camera backpack sure does make it look that way though!
We drove for a while, almost accidentally went across the Golden Gate Bridge thanks to some very misleading road construction, and finally ended up at Fisherman's Wharf. It's a must-stop location for a first visit, even for a little guy.
After visiting a gallery that we love, we headed over to the Pier. Noah loved the seals and just kept laughing at their antics and barking. In fact, that kind of sums up the day. A lot of looking around and laughing from all of us.
It was the perfect family getaway, and while life isn't going to get really, REALLY busy for just a little longer, dealing with Daddy being a bit busier isn't so bad when we get to have some fun too.
