A visit from the Wittekinds
Don, Maggie and the boys came out to San Francisco during MLK weekend for the MacWorld Expo. Scott went to the city on the train Friday morning to go to the Expo with Don and Danny, and the girls and I drove up after Mary got out of school. The lower grades get out at 1:25 on Fridays, so we able to beat the traffic with a big headstart. We got a hotel room so we wouldn't have to drive back and forth each day to visit with the Wittekinds. We toured a WW II ship, ate lunch in Chinatown, drank hot chocolate in Ghirardelli Square, ate lunch in a sourdough bread restaurant at Fisherman's Wharf, rode the cable cars, saw the Golden Gate Bridge at sunset, and just enjoyed each other's company.
It was really cold that weekend. Below freezing at night and not much higher during the day. Mary's winter coat disappeared the first time she wore it to school. Another girl in her class who had a similar coat took it home by mistake, and we were able to get it back in time for the weekend in San Francisco.
