The weather has been warm and enticing to get the kids out into the city. With the long weekend, we enjoyed Sunday evening; a tad late as we had to wait for Aila to wake up from her nap, but once up, Aila scootered and Tesla skateboarded along the embarcadaro. These are the moments I relish how our gals are growing up as S.F. city gals. Their casual memories of simple kid fun are at beautiful landmarks (the bridge lights, the water) with great food to grab (as we did at the Ferry Bldg.), and the open space for kids to feel welcomed (the walkway is populated enough to feel safe, but open enough for kids to have fun).
They were so excited with the fun that it was easy to convince them to ride around GG Park the next day mainly b/c Dav and I wanted to catch this at the De Young museum.
We also visited the tower.
We then got new bicycles, long overdue, for both kids. T's 2nd, Aila's very first. Aila was so smitten, and immediately fell in love with hers.
We rode along the embarcadero, well, because it's such a nice space, actually. We found an area where we could have lunch on the sidewalk, then as Dav and I finished, we could watch the kids ride around Pier 27 that was very open and empty. (Since my phone died, last pic is from Dav showing the wide open flat space that is perfect for learning to ride or skateboard.)
Yay for S.F.! I know both Tesla and Aila think it's completely normal to play around the embarcadaro in its various spots that can be empty and quite beautiful.
Reminds me of this.
