We just got back from another business trip with Leighton's dad. We are very lucky because the Hubs bosses often include the wives when they travel and we get to accompany him on a lot of business trips. Leighton has gotten to travel so much and experience so many places in her 3 years of life.
This last trip took us to San Francisco.
It was a fun adventure and we had a little glimpse of city living.
We were a rare commodity (ladies with strollers) and I would have to say the locals were very helpful when we took the cable cars. We also got to experience tiny living in the smallest hotel room we have ever seen. We were very cramped and found fun ways to fit a stroller, carseat, 3 large suitcases, and crib into a room that barely fit the bed and desk in. Daddy bumped his knee or shine into the bed at least twice a day. The plus side of the tiny room, was first, we wanted to spend as little time as possible there. Second Leighton couldn't really do any damage because it took her two minutes to explore the place so she enjoyed Disney channel on the bed with the TV so close it was almost right in her face. Leighton was the luckiest girl because she was able to ride the Ferry two of the days. She really really loves being on boats.
First we went on a tour of Alcatraz.
The next day we took a Ferry to Sausalito and It was a "Charming" Town, but we didn't have much time there because we wanted to get back to visit our Northern Cali family, and the Ferry went less often on the weekends.
Then that night we got to go to a party on the field at AT & T ball park. It was a really fun experience. We put Leighton down on the field and she dragged her daddy right over the the Farris Wheel. They had carnival games, food tents, a big stage. If you wanted to you got to go hit ball in their batting cages and a coach would help with your swing. Leighton can now say she rode a Ferris wheel in the outfield. Its was a really fun experience.
It was a great trip, but its also nice to be back with the other munchkins.
