Shopping, Part 1

After dropping the luggage off at the Hilton we walked up to Union Square so Chloe could see just how big a city San Fran really is. If you have never been to Union Square, it is actually a parking garage (under it) and on top is a memorial for something (I did not read it) and a walking area with a cafe on one side. Across the street from every direction is some of the largest and well-respected retailers in the world. There is a Tiffany's, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, NikeTown, and Victorias Secret, and that is not even all of them. We walk all around there and then head to the mall right on Powell Street. From there we start to look in the shops and get a little snack (Wetzel's Pretzels). I get a hot chocolate because it is a cold and windy day in San Fran. Kenzie finds some pants that she wants. Kelly, her Dad, has to see them before she can get them (crack is whack). Cindi and I are taking bets on how long until Kenzie comes out crying because her Dad did not get the pants. A couple minutes later she walks out with a bag in her hand, smiling. Kelly actually got her the pants! We couldn't believe it!

After this small miracle we headed back to the BART to go to the Embarcadero and walk to Fisherman's Wharf.
