We had quite the whirlwind weekend. We were gifted tickets to the see the Zelda Symphony in San Francisco earlier in the year when they went on sale. We've been saving money and getting a little family help to afford to stay in the city for the night since then, so we were able to not only see the Symphony which was wonderful, but we weer also able to go to the California Academy of Sciences the next day. This is the family in the theater right before the show began. The kids loved it as well and it was quite the people watching event. There were folks decked out in full symphony attire, folks cos-playing as charters from the games as well as people who looked like they just walked in from the street. The music of course was wonderful and well worth the trip.

The kids had never been to Golden Gate Park, so we walked around a little bit before the museum on Sunday. Of course that was only one teeny tiny section of the park anyway. The place is massive. We'd not been to the Academy of Sciences either so we were there until almost closing time trying to see everything from the Planetarium, to the earthquake shake house, an enclosed rain forest complete with free butterflies and their living roof. This picture is the family up on the roof.

So you might imagine I'm pretty wiped this morning. We have a park day for the kids school later this morning and then schooling proper starts tomorrow. Maybe some lace later today, if I have some energy left at all. I'm not certain that I will.

Love the family pics. It's always nice to know there's a 'real' person or family behind what I read daily. And I think this is the first picture I've seen of you smiling, not trying to be mean, just an honest observation. Glad you enjoyed your trip!
