Then I found out his school was going also. We still decided to drive on our own and then just meet up with them.

During my wait I decided to leave my mom and son there and walk down to the Ferry Building to visit what would soon become my favorite place on Earth.......the Marisposa Baking Company. I had researched a little about gluten free places near where we would be and I found a blog that mentioned this place. They have a small location in the Ferry Building. My GPS said it was a 10 minute walk. When there is a gluten free cinnamon roll in my future, the walk is only 7 minutes! I basically ran! I got down there, got a couple of goodies and got back so we could all get in line.

Thanks for humoring me while I slipped into GF mode!
Back to the science filled day! We did end up meeting up with the school and Josh ended up slipping off with his two favorite buddies! If you're looking for something fun and educational to do with your kiddo I really suggest The Exploratorium. We will be going back when it's not free day. It was so busy and crazy. There is so much to see and do that we didn't even see everything. I had a hard time keeping up with the kids. The backpack I took with us seemed to weigh about 1 million pounds by the time we left!
The location is split up into different sections. So if you have a person with you that is really into a specific science field there is a section for them. Everything is hands on so kids really get involved in it. My son was trying to figure out each of the experiments. He wants to know how it all works. Now, let me bore you with far too many pictures that show a few of our favorite exhibits:
