Last week, I created a California Bucket List – things to do before we leave California. I know you’re dying to know what’s on it, so without further ado:
Lindsay Wildlife Museum after their renovations
- Bay Area Discovery Museum
California Academy of Sciences Charles M. Schulz Museum Exploratorium San Diego Zoo(and maybe the Oakland Zoo, too)
- A’s Game
- Giants Game
- Oakland Museum of California
- Sugarloaf Ridge State Park
- Santa Cruz
- San Francisco – Pier 39, Ghiardelli Square, ride a cable car
- Safari West
Petrified Forest a mission
- California Science Center
- La Brea Tar Pits
- Monterey Bay Aquarium
- Lady Bird Johnson Grove, Redwood National Park
- Muir Woods
- Armstrong Woods
- Hearst Castle
- Walt Disney Museum
- Sequoia and Kings Canyon
- Knotts Berry Farm
We went to the California Academy of Sciences the last weekend of February. Jackson’s orthodontist has these contests – trivia questions on the bulletin board of the waiting room. Jackson got all of the answers right, so he won four tickets to Cal Academy. Our friends the McMillians came with us. It was actually a great day!
My Aunt Sue came to visit at the end of January, and we ended up going to the Lindsay Wildlife Museum then. It was one of my favorite places as a kid, although it’s changed so much now. They were renovating, so the kids want to go again when the renovations are complete. I hope we’ll get the chance.
I bought Disneyland tickets. Then I found out we owe taxes to both the feds and the state this year. Bleh. Still, the plan is to use them. We just need to do some creative accounting, I think. We’re planning to take a Southern California trip to see my aunt and uncle, do the San Diego Zoo, a mission, and Disneyland.
Is there anything you think should be on this list?
