Special Date with Dad
When I go on ministry trips I prefer to go with my family. Warren and Liz invited my two daughters to come along and helped me be successful as a dad. We enjoyed a day in San Francisco with a special visit to China town, a dim sum lunch, a Sushi dinner, arts and crafts, cooking lessons, and shopping at ethnic food stores.
We walked through China town for an up-close look at the chinese culture in America. This is the largest Chinese Community in America. We found out that this was the only place a Chinese person could own land in California during the 1800’s and early 1900’s.
We went to a special Dim Sum restaurant for lunch right in the middle of China Town. Dim sum is a type of Chinese dish that involves small individual portions of food, usually served in a small steamer basket or on a small plate. We tried many new dishes and enjoyed them all. I especially enjoyed the Chinese BBQ.
We walked down to Fisherman’s Wharf to see the Sea Lions and walk on the pier. My 11 year old daughter Savannah came with me along with my 15 year old Emily.
We took a walk through the Italian section of San Francisco, it is amazing the change of culture you experience when you walk across the street from China Town into the Italian section. I so enjoyed experiencing the city by walking through it vs. driving in a car.
