We Left our Hearts in San Francisco (Part 2)

Sunday (5/11/08) was filled with activity. We took a cab to the Golden Gate Park, the Exploratorium and the Palace of Fine Arts.

The Golden Gate Park is HUGE so if you ever go, wear your tennis shoes and be prepared to walk for days! It is bigger than Central Park and is the largest urban park in the United States. The Golden Gate Park is comprised of wilderness, museums, playgrounds, two lakes and a music concourse. Some notable features of the park include the Japanese Tea Gardens, the de Young Museum and the San Francisco Botanical Garden. We ate lunch at the de Young Cafe which uses only organic ingredients in their meals and serves many scrumptious vegetarian dishes...mmmmm!

The playground at the Golden Gate park was built in 1887. It has obviously been updated with the best and most current playground equipment over the years and was by far the best playground that I have ever taken my kids to...here are some pics of them having fun at the playground, in and around the park as well as walking in the woods:

Here we are walking on one of the many trails within the park and enjoying the playground eqipment. California was in heaven.
Tennessee had an awesome time climbing throughout this rope structure. You can see him right in the middle in this picture. He actually got all the way to the top (yes...the child that is afraid of heights).

Check back soon for information and pictures of us at the Exploratorium, the Palace of Fine Arts and Ice Cream!
