James planned a little mini-vacation for us on the sly! Sweet, sweet, sneaky husband! We were only there for 3 days but we had soooo much fun!
See how many clues it takes you to figure out were we went!
We stayed in our home state of California, but we flew on an airplane. This was Peyton and Ella's first plane ride, so it was a super big deal!
On our plane ride we saw typical plane stuff:
And The Simpsons:
And a storm a-brewin':
Pretty cool, right?
Our hotel room had this view (hmmm...is that an island back there?):
We took a tour of a submarine:
I'll tell you, every single time Peyton came home from the school library last year, he either had a book about skateboarding or some sort of warfare - aircraft carriers, battleships, tanks - you name it. So seeing the inside of a REAL SUBMARINE was really cool!
We walked down a really, really curvy street!
We went to the best smelling bakery in all the land - Boudin Bakery:
And we ate in their restaurant. And had clam chowder. In a sourdough bread bowl.
We went to an Aquarium where we got to see all sorts of sea life, like Sharks and Sea Stars and Sea Nettles:
And why the H E double hockey sticks does a sting ray need to look like this? It's just creepy!
The Aquarium also had some really useful information in their women's restroom:
We went to a Fisherman's Wharf where there were lots of sidewalk food stands:
And we had dinner at Nick's. Lobster bisque. In a sourdough bread bowl.
We saw A LOT of sea lions!
I love this guy:
You know what? Sea lions are SUPER STINKY.
We took a bay cruise and saw this island close up:
And this bridge:
Did you figure it out yet?
Here's the final clue!
We spent $15!!!
(On this souvenir picture. Totally worth the money because I love this picture!)
How many clues did it take you? :)
