To kick off the week I decided to bring him (dragged my big fella too) to Japantown. It was once a very familiar destination for me as my father used to take the family there often when we were kids. As I said in previous posts, I think I learned to eat with chopsticks before I learned to eat with a fork!
Here are some snaps from our day:
Buzzing across the Bay Bridge on our way to SF.
That's MY boy eating with chopsticks!
Both of my fellas.
Salad, Japanese style.
Charsu Ramen (roasted pork with noodles soup)
Love this mural and the fella in it!
Japantown Haul! I've been searching for Washi Tape (Japanese decorative masking tape)
online and found a boat load in Japantown. I really like it but IT IS PRICEY! The tape at the top is the pricey stuff. The tape to the left was purchased at a Japanese $1.50 store.
Old school corner market sign on the way to Noe Valley.
While we were in the city, thought I would take my son to see his great-grandparents old house.
He got a kick out of it. I spent many a day/night here!
They lived on Army Street but now it's called Cesar Chavez.
It's still Army to me!
St. John's church just down the street. They used to drag me here every Sunday.
I hated it but always thought the church was beautiful. Still do. The inside is MAGNIFICENT with all of the stained glass work.
Next stop this week - Golden Gate Park. Japanese Tea Garden & The Hall of Science.
