Sunnyvale Summer Week 6

21 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.

Sunday:

  • Chill day at the house

Monday:

  • Pool day
  • Doctor Who marathon — Series 3 with Martha Jones.  Not my favorite, but it does include some great episodes, especially Blink (scariest episode ever)

Tuesday:

  • Library visit
  • Sunnyvale Golfland — We played another round in the Knight’s Quest course and some arcade games.  By the time we were done, the boys had earned 2100 tickets to redeem.  And here’s their haul.

Wednesday:

  • Exploratorium in San Francisco — This time we traveled by car up to the peninsula.  The Exploratorium is a huge hands-on science museum.  The boys really enjoyed their time there.  I especially loved the life sciences sections.
  • Palace of Fine Arts — Right outside of the Exploratorium is the old remnants of the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition.  They are just gorgeous and make for great photo ops.
  • Golden Gate Bridge visit — The boys and I drove over the bridge to get the view from the other side. It was worth the $6 to get back to the city to see the view.
  • Dinner at the Sunnyvale Music and Food Wednesday — Murphy Street hosts a great collection of band, vendors, and food trucks.  I ordered some amazing fish tacos from the Oaxacan Food Truck.  The boys got some curry chicken nuggets (A loved, N not so much) and yummy yummy sauce.


Thursday:

  • Chill day at home

Friday:

  • Great America — We finally hit some of the attractions that we hadn’t before.  And I got to ride The Grizzley (wooden style coaster).  Plus we took in a show.  It was a good day.

Saturday:

  • Chill day at home with Doctor Who marathon.

Starting goals:

  • Getting a library card (for the boys) and weekly trips √

  • Great America √
  • Aquarium of the Bay in San Francisco √
