For Connor’s 1st Birthday we decided to take him to the CA Academy of Science in San Francisco. My Mom, my brother Jaime and my cousin Francis came along too =)
Family picture in front for the museum
One of the first things we saw when we got there was the dinosaur. The kids call him Rexy like the dinosaur from the movie Night at the Museum.
Next we went to check out the Earthquake exhibit! Lots of people don’t like earthquakes, but I think they are pretty cool. The kids loved going in the stimulator so they could feel what a real earthquake would feel like.
The last big earthquake was on my birthday!
Family picture we took before going in the earthquake exhibit. I love how everyone is acting scared, but Laci actually looks very concerned hahaha
After we walked around and saw a couple of animals.
Here’s the famous albino alligator
Connor found a snake that was actually playing with him, going back and forth across the glass.
Then we headed to the Rainforest dome which was very hot and humid! There were also lots of butterflies flying around which freaked me out =/

Then we headed to the roof to see the “living roofs”
Next up was the aquarium section. Connor’s favorite part =)
Here he is checking out the jellyfish
He loved watching all the fish swim by
Inside the tunnel are he just sat there and looked at all the fish swimming around him =)
Another family picture before exiting the aquarium area
After we were done at the museum we went to go visit my grandparents at the cemetery before heading home
When we got home everyone came over to sing him Happy Birthday and to have some cake and ice cream.
Happy 1st Birthday my baby boy Connor!!!!! We love you so much and we’re so happy we have you to complete our family. You’ve brought so much joy to our lives and we couldn’t imagine our lives without you ❤
