We loved RVing full time in San Francisco, here we are in front of "The Seven Sisters"

There were lots things I loved about RVing full time in California.

Because the state is so big, when you RV full time in California, there is so much to see.

But my brother Eli and I liked San Francisco the best, because we stayed there the longest. What made it the most fun is that we had our cousins there.

When you RV full time, you get to see many neat things and learn a lot of things that you never knew about before. And sometimes you just have FUN!

In this full time RVing post, Eli and I tell you about some of our favorite things about RVing full time in Cali!

1. Seeing Our Cousins Cobalt and Cypris (known as Cy Cy)

We went to the aquarium with Cypris and Cobalt RVing

We went of lots of cool places like the aquarium in Golden Gate Park.

At their house, Eli played Legos with Cobalt and Alex chased Cy Cy around.

2. The Big Sleepover at Cobalt and Cypris’ House

In the morning at about six o’ clock Cypris woke up and started crying and Alex tried to put her back to sleep. But she kicked him in the crotch! Ouch! He then put her in the bed he was sleeping in and she was fine.

3. Going to Ghirardelli Chocolate

Ghirardelli chocolate while rving full time was our favorite place to eat!

We went with our cousins to get sundaes and they were good!

Eli almost ate his whole sundae! Believe me it tasted good. It had hot fudge,whipped cream, and a chocolate waffle cone.

4. Playing Baseball with Alex’s Buddies at Baseball Field in The Marina

5. Taking science classes at the Exploratorium with Ken and Cassie

7. Having sodas at the Top of The Mark

Root beer for Alex and seven up with sweet and sour for Eli. The soda was really good, but they had a very long line. Plus to just get a table, you had to wait 30 minutes.

Once we got in, we pretended we were James Bond…that was fun.
