Our Saturday morning started with some pancakes at home in the South Bay. One of Alex's favorite shows right now is Sid the Science Kid, and we recently watched an episode about pancakes. Alex helps me cook sometimes and is learning to crack eggs.
Later that morning, we headed to San Francisco. After rainy and then cold weather, we had beautiful weather with highs in the 60's. (It was actually cold enough to scrape frost off the cars multiple mornings!) John had wanted to try the American Grilled Cheese Kitchen for a while now. Lunch was yummy and then we found a park nearby.
After lunch and playground time, we drove to the Northwest corner of San Francisco to Lands End for the spectacular views and some hiking. Alex got to play in the ruins of Sutro Baths. It is a beautiful park with amazing views!
Then we headed to the East Bay to have dinner with Matt in Berkeley. We made it back to a restaurant that we visited on my first trip to the Bay Area in 2011, Saturn Cafe. It was a fun day, but we were tired by the time we arrived back home in the South Bay.
