A Day In The City
Our Trip to Sanfrancisco
Yesterday Sean, Emma, and I decided to take a little trip to San Francisco :) Sean's birthday is coming up and we wanted to celebrate by going to one of our favorite cities. Our first stop was at the California Academy of Sciences [Sean won 2 tickets in a raffle at Christmas time]. First we went through the African animals, which Emma loved! At the end of the section they had 17 African penguins that were very funny and Emma went right up to the glass to see them up close. Next we went to the Rainforest :) There was 3 levels filled with ponds, plants, birds, frogs, snakes, spiders, geckos, and free flying butterflies. It was so much fun seeing the excitement on Emma's face when a butterfly would flutter by. Sean and I though were ready to get out of there by the time we got to the top; they keep it a humid 85 degrees in there! (note there is only one picture of the rainforest in the gallery because my lens fogged up instantly, but I had to show you Emma's face when a butterfly was close to us.) Last, but definitely not least, we went to the aquarium (Sean's favorite part)! There were fresh water and salt water sections all filled with beautiful fish and coral. I can't even count the number of times Emma said "fishies" or the number of times of times I caught Sean wishing he could have a tank the size of our house :)
Once we left the Academy we drove around Golden Gate Park (since it was raining) for a little. Then when the rain took a break we stopped at the old Dutch Windmill since I have never been before.There were beautiful red tulips that were covered in rain drops and they made me thank God for the small beautiful things that are all around us everyday.
We drove around the city a while longer then headed home; it was a great day:)
