Our Afternoon in Chinatown

The weekend before last, the weather was wonderful, and we drove to San Fransisco and spent the afternoon exploring Chinatown. The Chinatown in SF is the largest in the country, and it's a very buzzing place--full of food and clothes markets and little "Dim Sum" restaurants. According to Wikipedia, "Dim Sum is a type of Chinese dish that involves individual portions of food, usually served in a small steamer basket or plate". (We had to look this up, because all the restaurants said, "DimSum", and we had no idea what that meant!)Here's the Dim Sum buffet where we ate lunch. The sign doesn't look it, but this was a VERY authentic little place. In other words, we didn't recognize most of the food that we ate. And after walking through the markets afterwards, and seeing all the grubs and dead, dehydrated water creatures, we felt that it was better that we just didn't know...!Sadie thinks that she is up for trying chopsticks.

Danny looks a little skeptical...I think he prefers Panda Express.

I think it's fun to try weird food as long as I am not sick for hours afterwards!

Here's Sadie and I in the food market. We stick out just a little. Everyone loved her light curls and blue eyes!

Trying on hats..

This is the park where Joe DiMaggio played. The sign in the distace on the fence says something to that effect. Danny was looking for this as we walked, because he's reading a biography about him, and reading about this very spot!

I was singing to her, and she was snuggling into my face. :)

Great day...Adventures with my Danny and SadieBug are the best..!
