California Academy of Sciences

Jan 19, 2009

This weekend Jessica’s Mom and Brother stayed at our house. On Saturday we all got up early and trekked up to SF to visit the newly renovated California Academy of Sciences. I hadn’t been there since I was in Elementary School. It was really crowded which made it hard to walk around and see all the exhibits but we were all impressed with all the new stuff.

I think everyone’s favorite part was the butterflies. They’re so beautiful and it feels like a magical world when you are in the “bubble” they are kept in. They would come right up to land on your hand if you let them, and you had to go through special doors to make sure you didn’t have any butterflies stuck to you when you exited.

After seeing just about everything and being tired of walking, we headed over to Baker Beach near the Golden Gate Bridge for a little fun in the sun before driving home. Here are some photos from the day:
