For Søren’s 5th birthday present, we stayed the night at the museum. Which museum? The California Academy of Sciences, of course!

Every Sunday we’ve been making it a point to have family time exploring somewhere local or doing an activity together. I’ve been dying to ride the paddle boats at Stow Lake in Golden Gate Park for a long time now, and we finally are able to cross it off our list!
