At the beginning of November Dallas, Daxton, and I were able to meet up with Oscar in San Francisco for a fun afternoon at Pier 39. Oscar is from my home town and is in his second year of school at Stanford University. We've known his family for years and truly consider his parents, him, and his two brothers our family as well.
With the craziness of our schedules and Oscar's insane schedule at school, we haven't been able to see him as much as we'd like, so when he called saying he was free for lunch, we jumped at the opportunity to catch up. Oscar took the train from Palo Alto up to the center of San Francisco where we picked him up and drove to Pier 39. It was pretty packed with it being a Saturday, but the weather was absolutely perfect. You can't beat 75 degree weather in the city during November! We decided to eat a later lunch at Bubba Gumps and were able to get a table looking right out on the water. While waiting Daxton had some fun with his best buddie, Brobee...I don't think he remembered the song "Don't bite your friends!"
Daxton loves watching people.
He is totally content sucking on a toy and watching all the different people around him and you don't get a higher population of "different" people than in San Francisco.
We love our city!
Oscar was so sweet and wanted to know everything about our little guy. He hasn't been around many babies, but wanted to try holding him anyway. Daxton was pretty chill and Oscar was sweet enough to let me snap a few pictures of them together. It was so nice to chat with him and hear all about his experiences at Stanford. He's such a smart guy and I'm so excited for him and all he's doing.
After eating at Bubba Gumps we decided to walk around Pier 39, watch the magician show, shop, and hang out with the sea lions. The weather was perfect and the sun was setting.
It was a great way to end a fun afternoon.
Daxton loved listening to the sea lions bark and push each other off the docks. It's amazing to see him discover things for the first time and watch his eyes light up.
It was such a fun day.
Thanks again, Oscar, for meeting up with us. We had a blast as always and can't wait to catch up again soon!
