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.


  • Chill day at the house


  • 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)


  • 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.


  • 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.


  • Chill day at home


  • 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.


  • Chill day at home with Doctor Who marathon.
