Hope you are having a great week. I'm sneaking in after kids were put to bed and hubby helped me out fixing a computer problem. Now, I have a little time before my eyes close for the night but before that, I wanted to share a little outing we had last Sunday afternoon.
It always feels good after travel and a bit of time out of your routine to get back to your swing of things. After church, we spontaneously decided to grab lunch at the Ferry Building and go to the Exploratorium as a family, which we haven't done in a little while.
I have heard from my friend Maria, that the grilled cheese at the Ferry Building is awesome so we went straight to the Cowgirl's Creamery little restaurant. It was amazing, that and a cup of blue bottle coffee and I was set to an awesome afternoon start. I usually limit my coffee intake to 2-3 cups a week( this is a happy compromise I have found).
Feeling under the weather and being sick last week made this particular Sunday pretty special since I was in good health. The kids love going to the Exploratorium, I find that place very hands on for the kids and ignites curiosity. We have been there so many times yet still find something new and exciting; a new station or an artist in residence sharing knowledge.
I must mentioned that the grilled cheese had caramelized apples inside. It was truly delicious!
Next, we headed to the Exploratorium.
There was an artist that was explaining the toothpick sculpture/art that he made during 40 years! Imagine all those years making it; definitely a labor of love. Scott Weaver, the artist, was so nice and talked to the kids and answer all their questions. I find it cool to find the motivation behind this sorts of things.
The Tinkering Studio is seriously awesome. I have been inspired by all of their ideas regarding blending crafts and technology.
It was a beautiful and leisured day with the family and it made my heart full.
Thanks for reading
