More of the Academy

It's exactly 1:48 AM. I can't sleep. Maybe because I live near a bunch of rowdies who have no bedtime and a colorful vocabulary. Or maybe because I got 6.5 consecutive hours of sleep last night (WAHOO!), and my body has decided it doesn't need any more for a while.

For whatever reason. I'm still up. I started planning my sharing time lesson for Sunday and now I'm blogging. At least it will keep me from grabbing a snack.

Last week we went to the California Academy of Sciences Museum in San Francisco. (Yes, again. Gotta use our passes before they expire in March!) This time we actually went into the indoor rainforest. Very cool.

The girls loved it. Our favorite part -- the butterflies. They were everywhere, and if you stood real still they'd land on you. They even have people that brush your stroller down and check you for hitchhiking butterflies when you leave the exhibit.

It was also really humid and my camera kept fogging up (hence the dream-like haze on the photos). It's a shame that this one didn't have its wings spread apart. It was a gorgeous blue color.

Someone's getting the sleepies.

This guy liked my hat. I like my hat, too. I got it HERE. (Thanks McKell!) It was rainy that day (big surprise) so I rocked some braids, which I rarely do.

The aquarium is always our favorite part.

I'm realizing that I don't have many pictures of myself with the girls since I'm usually the one behind the camera. I'll have to work on that.

What gorgeous photos, especially in the aquarium!

Oh MAN, I miss that place!! I used to go there every couple of years... sad that I'm so far away now!

Looks like an awesome time! We've been through a butterfly exhibit with the kids once at Hoogle Zoo. It was so fun to watch the little delighted expressions. All three of you girls look adorable!

How fun is that! I love Museums. We went to the Museum of Natural History in L.A and it was great! We finally got Disneyland passes since we only live 30 minutes away and we are loving it!

You should definitely do the hundred push ups. I usually do it first thing in the morning or right before I go to bed, and it takes me less than 10 minutes.

Thanks Natalie, I'm so happy you like it! I should go there!

I really wish we had something like that here. The museum here is nice to go to and my kids love the discovery play area they have but (as you know) there is NOTHING even close to a rainforest here. I'm so jealous. We'll have to put it on our "TO DO SOMEDAY" list!
