3Sept14 Quick trip to the Exploratorium

We met up with a new friend (his name is Marcello) at the Exploratorium in San Francisco, figuring that the crowds wouldn’t be too bad, since school has just started and the teachers haven’t arranged any field trips yet, and we were right! Luke and I love having more room and time with each exhibit, and he especially loved having a new friend to explore and play with. We took BART, and only stayed for about three hours, which is short for us, but we didn’t want to have to take a crowded train home and have to stand up the entire way. We usually just stay in San Francisco until after 6 pm so the commute crowds have died down, but a quick trip was just fine today.
