Bay Area Discovery Museum

Today was our first visit to the Bay Area Discovery Museum. I’ve wanted to check out this museum sooner, but since it’s located in Sausalito and would have to drive through San Francisco I held off. That all changed when I found out that the museum has a free day each month. I love free days! That was all the encouragement I needed to make the drive and I’m so glad we did. The kids and I had a blast. There is plenty to entertain and the only time my kids complained was when I told them we needed to look at something new or leave the museum. That speaks for itself.

Halloween 2013

Yep, the final choice for this years Halloween costumes were cowboys. Phew! It was not an easy decision to say the least. From pirates, to Indians, to brave knights, to ninjas, to the Lone Ranger and then cowboys…makes me dizzy just thinking about it. Ha! So happy they came up with something completely unique to them and had fun with it. I found the hats at Michael’s for only about $2 each with coupon and Corbin wanted to add their names with foam stickers to personalize them. Everything else we had was in our closets. Love that! Attached are some pictures before the kids went trick or treating with dad. They were so excited! I just love the expressions on their faces.

Pumpkin Festival, Half Moon Bay

Today we ventured over to Half Moon Bay for the second weekend in a row. We walked the main street because they were having their annual pumpkin festival. It is such a cute town and there were lots of things to keep our eyes, ears and mouths entertained. There were signs for pumpkin cookies, pumpkin coffee, pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin pie, pumpkin churros, pumpkin cheesecake and even pumpkin corn bread throughout our walk. I was in heaven! I loved the atmosphere and all the wonderful smells. The crowds were a little much at times, but it was still a good time. The kids enjoyed making little pumpkin out of clay on the Michael’s bus and they even gave me a $10 gift card. We also scored other yummy free treats along the way like pumpkin coffee, protein bars and candy. We ended our time with a bowl of pumpkin ice cream and a rootbeer float. We can definitely say we were spoiled! Recently Updated102 (1024x683)
