we went to san francisco-day 3

We got a rental car for the third and final day of our trip so that we could explore a bit further away from the city.  Our first adventure by car: driving down the famous Lombard Street.  It was so awesome!  These pictures don't do it justice, so if you've never been, go.  I know my kids would have loved it!

Our next adventure by car: crossing the Golden Gate Bridge!

We drove over the bridge so that we could get to Muir woods and see the HUGE redwood trees.  
Again, I could not believe we were only a few miles from where we had been the previous two days, because it felt completely different.  
The trees were unbelievable, it was so calm and quiet in there among the huge trees, and it looked and felt like no other place I had ever been.

These pictures are so pretty, but they are nothing compared to actually being there.  Again, if you've never been before, go!
For lunch/dinner, we headed to Sausalito to eat at the highly recommended restaurant: Fish.

The line was crazy long and went way out the door, but we waited anyway, and we are glad we did!
Isn't my date handsome?!
Yet again, we had an amazing view from our table!
Remind me when I'm no longer pregnant to find some good ceviche, because the couple of bites I ate before realizing that the fish was merely marinated and cured, and not cooked, were amazing!

After we ate, we drove through the hills of Sausalito to see the homes with the amazing views.
The funny thing was, most of the homes you could hardly see because they were hanging off the side of the cliff.  All you could see was the parking space or garage, and the front door or stairs that lead to the house.  It was gorgeous up there!
Next adventure by car: The Painted Ladies, aka the Full House houses!
It was so funny to see these homes in person and think about how many times I had seen them in that opening shot from Full House.  Honestly, the Painted Ladies looked like they all needed to be repainted, and one of them was being worked on, so hopefully they will all get some fresh paint, because they looked a bit sad. 

We spent a bit of time relaxing at the park that is just across the street.  There was a group blowing these huge bubbles, which was pretty awesome!

That evening, because I was too worn out to walk any more, we went to a movie theater and saw Captain America 2.  It was a good movie, and a nice ending to such an awesome trip!

I'm so happy that Bart and I got to spend these 3 days just the two of us, seeing so much, eating so much, and being able to have multiple conversations without being interrupted, before this new little one joins our family!
