What an amazing day! The weather didn't start out so great, so we moved our sailing trip to the afternoon. We got down to the 'Wharf' around 1:00pm. The clouds cleared out and it was sunny and mid 60's. We walked around and grabbed a sandwich before we went out at 2:00pm. We had a 40ft sleuth to ourselves.(w/ a captain and 1 crew member) Oh, there was also 'Teka' the captain's dog.(The boys loved Teka) We sailed out on the San Francisco bay around 'Alcatraz.' We had an incredible view of San Francisco's skyline as well as the Golden Gate Bridge. Kelly and I agreed we couldn't spend a lot of time on the water, but this was a perfect day.

After sailing, we went back to 'Boudin's' bakery to tour their museum. We saw Ramon again and he personally took us upstairs to the museum and pointed out some of his favorite exhibits. I never would have guessed you could learn so much from a bakery. But, Boudin's isn't just a bakery. It's definately a must see in San Francisco. Keegan and I also teamed up on a computer game to test your baking skills and won a loaf of sour dough bread. -Chris

To top the day off we hit a Giants baseball game. Again, the weather was picture perfect and the AT&T Stadium is probably the nicest stadium in the country. Just built in 2000, it looks like the older traditional stadiums.(Fenway, Rigley...), but it is 'state of the art.' They have all types of activities for the kids like slides and batting cages. They also had every kind of food imaginable. We were told we had to have the Gilroy garlic fries. I think that was about the 4th thing we ate..(right after the kettle corn and peanuts, but not before the pizza and hamburger) To make it a perfect day the Giants were down almost the entire game but came back in the 7th inning and ended up winning the game. All in all it was an incredible day!
