Indepen-dance Day

July 4th BBQ's, shorts, and sunscreen. Nah, this is San Francisco so grab your Patagonia puffy jacket, long sleeve shirt, and let's celebrate Independence Day.

Jack spent the first half of the day with his Dad then we went to Fisherman's Wharf for some some windy, foggy fun in the afternoon. 

Luckily, Williams-Sonoma has an office directly across from where fireworks are launched for a warm front-row seat - and free parking if you get there early enough. 

Jack and I parked and walked down to Ripley's Believe It Or Not. The museum was a little scary for Jack with its sound effects and shrunken heads while being simultaneously entertaining with its interactive light exhibits, mirror maze, and laser maze (think Mission Impossible). In one exhibit there's a hall of computer screens that distort your image like a hall of mirrors. Jack had fun with his dance moves there:

Afterwards, we struggled to find a place for dinner along with the other 200k people waiting for the fireworks. We finally settled on a hot dog and cupcake. On our way back to the office, we stopped by the International Spy Shop and picked up a little toy that hides a small mustache comb "from the robbers" per Jack. When we finally took refuge from the wind in the office, the fireworks show was a great end to our evening.
