Forever Family Day- Academy of Science

We made the treck to San Francisco today and it was well worth the trip. Lily was so very excited to see all of the animals and was bouncing up and down pretty much the whole time we were there. Last year when we took her to Sea World she spent most of the day crying so I was not sure quite what to expect. What a difference a year makes. She was nothing short of enthusiastic the entire day.
She wanted to climb the turtle. When it was time to move on she was a little heartbroken. she decided to give him a smooch goodbye.

Fish do not photograph well or we are not sure of the setting. Either way he is the only one to make the cut.

Oh, one more this fish, also made the cut. Once again Lily would not join in the juvenile fun. Perhaps she was wise to decline.

However, butterflies and frogs in the rainforest exhibit photograph very very well!

This guy was our favorite.

Couldn't leave without a shot of the albino alligator. His name is Claude apparently he is very sophisticated.

My girl, is quite enthusiastic about penguins! No penguin pics turned out, but they like shiny things, kinda like me, so they were fun to play with. We are listening to penguin facts here...

and here.....
And here. That little face takes my breath away. Really no fancy camera needed to make her look sweet and angelic.

On the way home...
After singing Old McDonald loudly, clearly trying to fight sleep, she gave up.

Then we went out to dinner where we topped it off with mile high mudpie. We are wide awake.
And what is a celebration without a sugar crash.
Time for bed sweet girl. Love you to the moon and back!
