A day in SFO (feb08)

Maya and I had a monday off from school and work. So we made plans with Gretchen's sister and her family to go to SFO. At first we wanted to take the train, but after adding the costs per person, driving quickly became the cost effective option. Hey, fun can sometimes be free, but not in this case. Anyway, we had a good long day.

Enjoy, and add comments! (positive)

San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge on a nice day.

We were outnumbered 4 adults to 6 kids (age 5 and under). Yikes! but fun.

Lots of fun things to see.

The kids were loving the pier.

This one was only 10 feet from us.

We went to the aquarium. The touch tanks were fun.

The underwater tunnel was really cool, and saw lots of sharks!

By evening, the fog rolled in.

First month of 2008 gone by

Well, i thing the theme of January 2008 was "Sick, sick, sick". The whole family was sick. Of course, it started w/ the kids. Since Maya is now in K-school, she was the first to get it. Started w/ somekind of stomach flu (vomiting) for a few days. Ruby was sick(fever, vomiting) at the same time as Maya, at 1am! A few days later, it was Mason's turn, same symptoms, nausea, vomiting, high fever, cold sweats. Next are the parents. I got hit hard w/ the flu! Had to take 4 days off. It was the worst feeling, laid up in bed just waiting it out. I think the reaper was knocking at my door. Gretchen had it the least, if at all. I guess it's true that moms never get sick. Then back to Maya and Ruby, they both got ear infections (double ear for Ruby). More vomiting(on me) and high fevers.
Anyway, we're all feeling better now. Not quite 100% but close. I lost 5 pounds instantly, not that i needed to. Ramen noodles for diners are not so nutritious.

Next time, i'm getting the flu shot.
