Sunnyvale Summer Week 4

07 Jul

The boys are here! Now on to the fun.  I thought it would be a easier to do a week in review for all of our summer adventures.  Week two in the past:


  • Chilling at home


  • Chilling at home — three days in a row, but it felt so nice


  • Winchester Mystery House — It’s only about 15 minutes away from our house.  I had previously visited 6 years ago on vacation.  I thought the boys would enjoy it after our interesting visit to Fallingwater.  We did the mansion tour and the behind-the-scenes tour.  I love examining all the of the different rooms and gardens.  I love that house!  I think the boys enjoyed our time.

Wednesday: Fourth of July!

  • Fireworks in Cupertino — We didn’t want to fight the crowds to get to the bay, so we decided to head about 15 minutes south to Cupertino.  We sat in a nice park with our picnic blanket, card games, and snacks.  The fireworks were great.  And the best part was that we got home in 30 minutes.


  • Running errands without the car — The boys and I took a nice walk to the bank and then to Target.
  • Lunch at Gumbas — We grabbed a pizza at the Italian restaurant two blocks from the house.  Yummy!


  • Pool afternoon
  • Movie — We ventured out to see The Amazing Spiderman.


  • Library visit — We grabbed some great books and movies.
  • Dropped J off at SFO — He’s flying to Romania for a week for a business trip.  While the cat’s away, the mice will play.  Not really…  But I will miss him.

Starting goals:

  • Getting a library card (for the boys) and weekly trips √
  • Sky High  √
  • Great America √
  • Aquarium of the Bay in San Francisco √
  • Alcatraz
  • Scavenger hunt/photo scavenger hunt
  • San Jose Giants baseball game?
  • Beach trip √
  • Exploratorium in San Francisco
  • Summer camps  √
  • Most likely daily pool visits √
  • Get together with an old friend and her kids
  • Possible bike rides
