San Fran Day 2

we started with breakfast at:

 followed up by a serious giggle session with the sea lions.
those are some FUNNY animals.
so so funny.

 Played around on Pier 39

and the rest of our day was pretty much spent here:

 Picture overload, sorry, but it was THE BEST BEST BEST museum I have EVER been to.
Like, by a long shot.
A long long long shot.
Adults or kids...GO HERE.
Plan your vacation around it.

I'd call it a physics and probability museum.
They call it a hands on science museum.

We spent the first 10 minutes outside the building on the fog bridge - they literally could have spent all day out on this bridge.
We had to peel them away!

 First stop, use the bathroom, get a drink:

there was a regular water fountain right next to it and a sign telling you they were just the same and then asking which you chose:

 self portrait in this cool christmas ornament thing:
 the 'staff' were all young college students....Science majors of all kinds.
they were TOP NOTCH.

 We watched an entire dissection of a cow's eyeball.
The boys had a hard time with it, our girls....totally intrigued ;-)

not all our girls.
this one did not watch....neither did her daddy ;-)

 sophie's eye ball...lots of them.

 the only exhibit that bored Nora and Sophie?
the one where you line your face up with someone else to try and trade facial features...
um. it doesn't work on identical twins.
you just get the same feature ;-)

but this one, they were at for a while ;-)
two left halves and two right halves of your face put together.

we spent a good 30 min's watching this guy do card tricks and then explain the math behind them, soooooooo cool.
THAT is math people.
build a marble of their favorite spots:

and...back to the fog bridge....and I promise I left out about 100 pictures.

back in the car, back to Pier 39 for dinner and then back home!

sooooo tired and sooooo ready to go back!!!!
All six of us fell in love with San Fran!

Dude, Snora's hot pick hat scarf combo in the second pictures is the bomb! I have got to get me one of those...if I ever move back to a cold climate!

And the toilet bowl water fountain... nothing cooler. In the history of children's museums....that alone makes it the best. :)
