Last week we drove to the edge of the redwood to drop Cody off at science camp for the week. Our charter gives this opportunity to 5th and 6th graders at Alliance Redwood Campgrounds.
Monday we traveled to Goat Rock Beach to start his week off with a program for the families. We were able to meet his counselor for the week and find out who would be in his group (the scorpions).
It was a beautiful day at the beach!
They started with a scavenger hunt around the area
Then they used their found items to create mosaic pictures (that I didn't get).
One of the cool stick shelters that we found on the beach
Ty built his own structure
The next station they built a city out of sand, talking about all the things that a city needs to run.
Ty built a city next to Cody's group.
Talking about the city they built.
The last station talked about different sea animals and we were able to see the harbor seals that are on the beach.
Seeing if all the kids in his group together make up a blue whale.
After the beach we drove him to camp where he was completely distraught we were leaving him for the week.
The stream that runs through camp.
We had a normal week at home with the littles, back and forth to gym and school.
Friday we traveled back to pick up our happy boy. He had a blast at camp and we will work on getting his pictures developed to share.
We traveled into Santa Rosa to the Charles Schultz Museum.
Photo op areas.
They have a lot about the Red Barron strips and football for the super bowl. They change the themes every 6 months or so.
Cody was exhausted from his week, so we went back to the hotel for a bit of rest before dinner.
Saturday we were up with the sun and hit with rain. After a bit of searching we found a theater and went to Zootopia. It was a very fun movie and a good way to spend the morning.
After the movie we headed into Alameda to the Pacific Pinball Museum
Ty and I have been here before, but it was so fun to bring Cody to play. Once you pay your entry fee the machines are free play as long as you want to stay. The boys really liked the older games the best.
This was a favorite of mine, hybrid game with Pac-Man and pinball.
After we were finished playing games we traveled to Pleasanton for the night.
Chili's for dinner and a quiet night in finished our day.
