Family Day > California Academy of Sciences

We took a much needed little family day trip last Tuesday to the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco.  I grew up in the bay area so we travel often to SF for little day trips just to hang out and soak up the city.  And we we've been wanting to see the newly renovated building since it's opening.

It's really difficult to take lots of pics with a little one in tow and really enjoy our day together at the same time.  So, not many pics from this trip.  We hadn't been to the newly renovated building and we had lots to experience.  

The most impressive part to us was the Rainforest structure.  A spherical structure that showed the many levels of a flooded Rainforest.  From the under the water to the the top of the canopy.  Butterflies, fish, birds, tropical trees & flowers.  It was amazing.  Hot and steamy - but amazing.  If it wasn't for the heat, I could have stayed in there for hours.
We always wrap up our SF trips with a stop at Pier 39.  We checked in on the Sea Lions, walked the pier, grabbed ice cream, clam chowder in a bread bowl and then headed home.  Pic of Wyatt's demolished cup of Bubble Gum ice cream - Ewww.

  1. I have a AAA ad staring at me on my desk to visit the newly renovated CAS. I'm jealous! Glad you had a blast on Family Fun Day! :)
