Day Three In San Fran!

Days one and two if you missed them.

On Wednesday we knew my friends Kaitlin and Alicia were coming to visit but weren't sure what time yet, so we decided to figure out how to use the trolly system/buses.

Once we payed some bums for directions (they were quite helpful, actually!), we made our way to Fisherman's Wharf. It was pretty chilly but luckily the sun was out so it helped ease the chill of the winds.

We walked around and looked in a bunch of stores. We had some overpriced delicious strawberry crepes and then walked around some more! We went into this crazy mirror maze that was pretty funny...I might post a video of that sometime.

We sat down in the sun and looked at a ton of seals that were just chillin' all on top of each other. Then we got some lunch. I tried some fried shrimp and fries and Michael got a soup bowl.

Then we headed back to home base (hotel/that area) and met up with me friends! It was SOOO nice of them to make the trek up just to spend a few hours with us! I have been friends with Kaitlin and her sister Whitney since we were all in diapers. When I was 18 I moved in with their family in Northern California and that's when they introduced me to Alicia! We all became very close and have tried to see each other at least every 6 months or so. ANYWAY....

(Alicia, me, and Kaitlin in our hotel room.)

When they got here we went to the mall down the street. It's huge! It's at least 5 stories tall and very wide! They even had a touch screen map thing in the mall (you know the maps they have, right?) and I couldn't get over how cool that was! Michael was kind enough to let me have some alone time with the girls. He just got some food (of course) and played games on his phone while us girls went to Frederick's. Kaitlin had never gotten sized for the right bra size so I told her if she did it that I would buy her a bra myself. Low and behold, she got a new bra and feels (and looks) like a brand new woman! Moral of this story- get the right bra size and it looks a lot better!
Moving on...
After that little fiasco, we met back up with Michael and got some JAMBA JUICE!!

After sitting around for a little while, we saw some people swing dancing in the square and watched them. They said they were going to be having a free swing dance class in about 15 minutes and at first I got really excited...but then I started thinking about how my friends came out to see us and so I wouldn't want them to be bored just sitting and watching us. Plus it was cold. So, we left!

(Can you see the people dancing in the background?)

We went back to the hotel and showed them the cool clubhouse on the top floor where they had a fireplace and free hot chocolate for us. Before we knew it, it was time to say goodbye! But it was so much fun to see them again! I couldn't thank them enough for coming all the way to see us. And I couldn't thank Michael enough for allowing it! :-)
