This sour face belongs to the boy who did not want his photo taken at the Lakeshore Learning store in San Leandro, August 22, 2015, 6:04 p.m.

From Daddy: We had a space-themed adventure this evening!

Whoa, he said of the spacesuit on display at the Chabot Space Center, it’s double my height, August 22, 2015, 7:57 p.m.

Speaking of height, here he is lined up at a display in the Chabot Space Center to be shown to be shorter than the shortest astronaut, August 22, 2015, 8:09 p.m.

After Mommy’s errand at the very crowded Lakeshore Learning store in San Leandro and dinner at nearby Hometown Buffet (which he enjoyed even though the ice cream machine needed to be replaced), we visited the Chabot Space & Science Center for some evening fun!

In the Chabot Space & Science Center, we were greeted by this amazing Martian globe, August 22, 2015 7:56 p.m.

One of the favorites was “Beyond Blastoff” where we learned about living in space:

We saw breaktaking telescopes, including Leah…

Leah was acquired in 1883 and when we first saw her, we were amazed by the telescope's beauty. Too bad the night was too foggy to use the scope. Source: ChabotSpace.org

…and Rachel!

But we were doubly amazed to see Rachel! Source: Wikipedia

Yesterday

It was a great first week of school. We capped the evening with a trip to Elephant Bar–his choice of restaurant to celebrate completing the week.

While Daddy was out, Mommy and Boy had a Burrito Break at Rubio’s. Mommy asked him to say “Burrito Break!” but he might have said, “Cheese,” August 20, 2015, 6:27 p.m.
