Father's Day at Fisherman's Wharf

This morning we woke up earlier than everyone else (ah, the joys of being the only ones on the vacation with children...), so we headed out to Starbucks to have some Father's Day coffee and scones. After that, we headed to breakfast with the rest of the Barsotti family at the diner in our hotel.

Some of us decided to head down the curvy part of Lombard Street and down to Fisherman's Wharf, so we hopped into the van and headed out. Ava thought going down Lombard was "just like a roller coaster." Then we went to the Wharf, which is pretty touristy, but is fun to poke around. We went to Ghiradelli Square and found a cute little peanut and tree nut free cupcake shop, where we bought Ava a cupcake and some milk. Unfortunately, Ghiradelli products are on the long list of no-nos for Ava due to her allergies, but she didn't even know what she was missing, thanks to the cupcakes.

We attempted to take a cable car ride, but the prices went up to $10 roundtrip per person, and $40 for 40 minutes of fun didn't seem worth it to us. Still, we got a couple of great shots by the bay:
