This Columbus Day Weekend we went to Pier 45 to experience San Francisco Fleet Week. Before having Mario, my husband and I tried to avoid any crowded events in the city, but a 3 year old and airplanes - well, it was a no brainer, deal with the crowds and look up. I am happy we did because when we told Mario he was going to see planes, he could not have been anymore excited. Once there, we all had a blast.
Mario loved the air show, especially the United States Navy Blue Angels, and he screamed with excitement when he saw them in the sky. Mario has an eagle eye, before I even saw anything he would scream "There's a plane, right there Mama!". He brought his favorite toy airplanes with him and he didn't let them go the entire day. I was also happy to end the day with a lobster, a large shrimp plate, fries and a beer from No.9 Fishermen's Grotto.
