San Francisco Through the Eyes of a Five Year Old: A Day on the Double Decker Bus

If you follow my INSTAGRAM, you may know that I think San Francisco is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and I love posting scenic pictures to prove it.  What I don’t post are some of the less scenic parts of San Francisco (think homelessness, construction, traffic, etc.).  Going through pictures to put together our photo album from last year, I came across our day on the double decker bus last summer.  Big D had been dying to go on the double decker bus, so last summer we finally did it.  I handed over the camera to him and sat back and relaxed to see what would end up on our camera roll.  Check out what San Francisco really looks like through the eyes of a five year old (and my top tips for riding the double decker bus)…

How to Get the Most Out of Your Trip to Legoland

Legoland is a great place to go with young kids.  I would almost say that our kids (and I) liked it even better than Disneyland.  Here’s why:  1. ) Everything in Legoland is targeted to kids under age 10.  Disney has a much broader appeal for a wider range of ages, but Legoland is really targeted at younger kids.  2. ) They have everything from rides to shows to waterpark and more.  3.) Legoland is also super interactive; a lot of their rides are not just rides, but the rider actual has to participate.  Here is how to get the most out of your trip to Legoland.
