San Francisco Treat.

In today's installment of Everyday Adventures, I encourage my children to ride on the outside of a moving vehicle. Ding! Ding!

We rocked some 1880 safety standards and enjoyed it immensely. (There was a moment when I wished they were wearing the helmets and the safety lines they've been required to wear while doing less dangerous things. I'll admit that - parenthetically).

And lunch at Sam Wo, which they almost did not survive. Chow Mein is a bit of an adventure when you don't like your foods to touch and you're not sure what that suspiciously string-looking thing is. It was a bean sprout.

Not pictured: illegal fireworks, ice cream.
