Sanfransico Vacation

Day 1:Trolley to Fisherman's Warf
we arrived in San Fransico Sunday night so technically Sunday was the first day but all we did was check into the hotel and chill. Then Monday Matt Had Confrences to go to for the WWDC. (World Wide Developer Confrence) So Ben and I swam in the hotel pool. When Matt came home we took a trolley and visited Fisherman's warf. Ben thought the ride there was fun sadly he missed the ride back because he was sleep.

At Fisherman's warf they have alot of fun things to do there. They have street entertainers, Shops, resturants, this merry-go-round, boats and ferry rides, and Ben's favorite the Sea Lions. We were imitating the sound of sea lions and ben tried really hard to make his own sound that sounded close enough that we would tell he was imitating them. We ate dinner at the In and Out Burger, saw the sights and headed back to the hotel. Poor Benjamin was so tuckered out and fell sleep while in line for the trolley.

Day 2:Union Square Park and Pizza
So thanks to Caleb he convinced Matt to let me wander durning the day while he was in confrences. So Tuesday, Ben and I went to Union park square. Sadly Matt had the camera so I had him take this picture later in the week. Ben had alot of Fun watching the Pigeons eat. Those birds arn't afraid of anyone. They went right up to ben in his stroller. Then we went to the disney store and back to the hotel to swim. Later that evening Matt and wandered and found a really good Pizza and pasta place we ate Pizza and spegetti.

Day 3: China Town
Today was just like the day before in the day activities... Went to the park again and the Disney store the only thing we added was Old Navy and Ross. Then that night we toured China town... we couldn't help our selves buying Ben a little China outfit. It was so Cute! Dinner was good too. Surprisingly enough Ben loved Chinese food, granted we ordered sweet and sour Chicken and Ham Fried Rice and a fruit dish, but it was good!!!

Day 4: SanFransico ZOO
Matt decided to ditch the rest of his confrences for this day and go to the zoo with us!!! It was Fun for the most part except that Ben was tired, it was his nap time and we really didn't let him nap. He seemed to like the Giraffe, the gorilla, and the penguins. But other than those few animals he barely seemed to notice them. For example in the zebra picture we got his picture looking at the camera because he simple refused to look at the zebras.
Well the rest of the zoo was fun. They had a Bird Feeding area where people were in the cage feeding birds. They also had a family zoo area where you can actually touch and pet the farm animals. They also Had a Little Choo train Ride to go on. After the zoo we went to a hotel in coupertino (I hope I spelled that right) so Matt could attend the apple Campus Bash. The Next morning we drove our 14 hour trip home.

Days of 47 Parade

The Days of 47 Parade was Benjamin's first parade ever.

I went with my sister,Rachael and her baby Charity,my Brothers, chris and Daniel and Daniel's friend Jake. Benjamin loved the Police motorcycles, The horses and one float had Bubbles!!!

He also loved it when the Jazz Bear and Ronald Mcdonald plastered us and everthing on the side walk with Confetti!!!

The only thing not fun was the blistering heat. Luckly we had fans with the attached spray bottles and plenty of water.

First Hair cut!!!

Surprise, we found our camera! If you want a funny story of where we found it, call us. (It could take a little while to explain.) Anyways Ben got his First Hair Cut! His hair was growing into his eyes, over his ears and curling in the back. Here is the before and after looks...

If you havn't noticed in the second picture his eyes are kinda red from crying the whole hair cut long. The place we went; Cookie Cutters, were really good they had cars and planes for the kids to sit in and they got to watch a movies while they got it done but sadly Ben still didn't like it.
