Fort Building


(or click https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lxox9I9YhX4 for a tour of his fort)

From Daddy: He spent mornings last week at the Bay Area Discovery Museum at Fort Building Camp!

I had the great fortune of being able to drive him there on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, but unfortunately I did not plan sufficiently to be able to drive him Wednesday and Friday nor visit his fort on Friday (the last day).

Still, returning to the museum gave me a great deal of nostalgia. He’s attend a camp at the Bay Area Discovery Museum for each of the previous two years (Art Attack! two years ago, Fort Building also last year), and we had great memories.

Happy boy; he had to wear his cap and mine while taking a photo of me, June 8, 2015, 8:48 a.m.

We arrived early on Monday (the first day), so we enjoyed a walk near the shoreline to look at the Golden Gate Bridge and take photos. Then, he joined his group on the mat that was set up on the sidewalk.

The Fort Building teacher had all the kids put a foot in the middle at a morning huddle before leading them into the museum, June 8, 2015, 8:54 a.m.

On the following morning, we also left the house early so I treated him to a bolo bao which he would have enjoyed at school on Tuesdays anyway. We brought our treats (I also got a pastry) and ate at the museum before anyone else arrived.

This Past Weekend


(or click https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zSLR-L8FnJM to see him bounce around on trampolines)

Between the trampoline dodgeball at House of Air and the rock climbing at Planet Granite, he did some free bouncing around. See the video above!

Also, just for fun, here is the safety video at Planet Granite (click https://vimeo.com/126339592 because it will not play below).
