Our friends Megan & Kenny came to visit us in California! Well, sort of; they didn’t specifically plan their trip around coming to see us :) they had already booked their California adventure before we decided to move. Nevertheless, it was so much fun to play host to our first guests!
We spent an entire Saturday together in the city. We walked through Chinatown where we bought matching chop sticks and paid $1.50 for some fortune cookies just so we could use a restroom…
Then we took a taxi over to Golden Gate Park where we spent a few hours in the California Academy of Sciences Museum. This place was awesome! I mostly wanted to go in because the building was designed by famous architect Renzo Piano; it featured a green roof spotted with porthole-like skylights.
The skylights provided sunlight to the enclosed rainforest exhibit below. We also got to watch a production about earthquakes in the museum’s planetarium, touch a starfish and see an albino alligator…science is pretty cool.
We were so happy to be able to see some familiar faces again but it was so hard to watch them leave. I really miss hanging out with these two and having them here definitely made me a feel a little homesick. Thankfully, July is coming fast which means another trip to Maine and a few more visitors coming to see us!
