Our Awesome Day

We had an awesome day today! We left the house a little after 8:00 am, heading for San Francisco. We had tickets for the King Tut exhibit at the de Young Museum. The tickets were for 10 am, but we were unsure how long it would take us to park in Golden Gate Park, so we left early. Since we were about an hour early (we had no trouble finding a place to park), we went into the Japanese Tea Garden. It is beautiful in there!
I love this picture of the boys, inside the garden. They had a lot of fun looking around.
A little before 10 am, we headed to the de Young, which is right next door to the Tea Gardens. We couldn't take any pictures inside the exhibit. It's really good though. Really crowded, but good. It's hard to believe the items are over 3,200 years old! Amazing. The boys really liked it too, and I enjoyed how Riley would explain stuff to Quinn.
Our exhibit tickets got us into the rest of the museum. We wandered around there, and then went up into their tower, for a great view of the city.
After the museum, we drove to the Golden Gate Bridge, and walked halfway across it. It was fairly clear today.

Kevin and the boys, on the bridge. This is about mid-span.

After the bridge, we drove toward the Cliff House, at the beach. We ended up in this park area near there, called Lands End, and then walked down to the Cliff House, and explored the remains of the Sutro Baths.

If you want to see the rest of our pictures, CLICK HERE. There are some really great shots of the bridge, and the gardens, and the museum, and the boys, and well, you get the picture. I have labeled the set "San Francisco 2/28/10.
