I was drawn out of bed yesterday by the announcement, “I want buhwaffles!” I brought out the waffle iron and Jack helped me stir the batter. Waffles are so incredibly easy and tasty! He wanted whipped cream, as well, but we had no cream. Next time! Crazily, Jack ate his entire waffle.
Determined to get out of the house and enjoy a bit of sunshine before the fog rolled in again, I asked Jack if he wanted to go on a boat. He started shaking with excitement and shouted “yeah yeah yeah!,” which answered that question. We got dressed and I made a PBJ sandwich to take with us, then we headed down toward the Marina to visit the SF Maritime Museum. It was a gorgeous day, warm but breezy, and after parking at Ghiradelli Square, we headed to Beach Street.
Admission for the museum is uber cheap (especially since Jack is free), which is why I picked it. We got our pass and boarded a schooner named Balclutha. Jack was a little nervous at first because he could feel the ship rocking a bit, but he soon got used to it. When he saw another kid exploring (a fellow pirate-shirted boy), he decided they would be pals and Jack followed him all round the boat. He didn’t want to leave after that.
We explored the boat for a while and then I enticed Jack off the boat with promises of cupcakes from Kara’s Cupcakes in Ghiradelli Square (although first we stopped on a park bench and ate our PBJ sandwich). I needed my parking validated anyway, so why not get cupcakes out of it? We ended up buying 7 because the minimum purchase for validation is $20. For what I would have paid for those two hours of parking, I got three cupcakes. That’s a great deal in my eyes!
