Sickness has been hanging around too long, or so I hear. After Papi came back sick from a business trip, I thought it would be good to take it easy this weekend. After all, he had three IV's at a local New York city hospital! There were lots of lego building, puzzles and disney movies this past day but we decided to head out for a little family outing nonetheless.
Mark Jacinto took a kid's yoga class at Hyatt Regency along the Embarcadero. At home we have lots of living room dance parties and have explored some yoga stretches with the kids before, so I was excited for him and expectant of how he would react to the group setting. At the beginning of the class he was a little bit shy but once he warmed up, he was very much into it. The Tahoe based instructor knew what she was doing and had a knack for explaining things in a kid friendly way. I loved watching him and by the end of the class he said: 'I love yoga, mom!". It made me so happyyy! I will always remember the beautiful mantra the teacher taught the kids: "The best in me seeks the best in you, and the best in you seeks the best in me". Isn't that lovely?
Soon afterwards, we went to a specialty sandwich bar for lunch and headed to Sue Bierman park for a quick burst of energy release.
At the Ferry Building, we got some cheese, coffee and ice cream of course. It has kind of become our place to go on quick and fun family outings as of lately.
My husband is a true fan of lights. He's the kind of guy that keeps up with the latest light shows and design just for the fun of it. So, as you may suspect, he loved the light art behind us. It was part of burning man last year and I love that the city commissions and supports this artists on doing cool art/sculptures like this. Thanks San Francisco!
