Want to have a fun day in San Francisco?

Visit the Academy of Arts and Sciences and the Japanese Tea Garden.

Mike and I went with the kids and my mother-in-law a while ago, and had a blast.

The Academy of Arts and Sciences is beautiful…

The kids loved the dinosaurs…

and the albino alligator.

We had fun walking through the aquarium…

and visiting the Japanese Tea Garden afterwards. One of my favorite things was how beautiful the plants and flowers were…

but I think the kids’ favorite thing was the new friend they made… :)

For more “Wordful” or “Wordless” Wednesday photos, stop by Angie’s Seven Clown Circus or 5MinutesforMom.

Talk soon,

  11. Beautiful!! Glad you had fun. We take the boys to the Museum of Natural Science in Houston for the Cockerell butterfly exhibit. They even do a butterfly release twice a year. It's so pretty to see all of the butterflies flying around and once one even landed on Hubs' head.
