The kids met my mom and dad in San Francisco. Needless to say, a wonderful time was had by all parties involved. At all the wonderful things the city has to offer. I think Sophie's highlight was the Nutcracker, where she sat through 2 hours without twitching - completely mesmerized. Alex adored the California Academy of Science play-room for infants. Parents enjoyed Sendak exhibition and Napa valley.
Here in SF zoo, they contemplate the lion with my dad - an old Leo himself.
