HE DID IT! YAY! A BLUE CARD WEEK -- FINALLY!

Although I'm still convinced he was able to negotiate his way out of a couple of potential green cards this week (which, in my book, would probably earn him a few extra brownie points), ultimately he ended the week on an ultra high note -- 5 blue cards!  A phenomenal feat for our little squirmy worm.  Regardless of how he got there.

For his reward, he chose to go to the new California Academy of Science museum, which we've all been dying to see since December, but, well, have been trudging through a sea of green and yellow cards for the last 2 1/2 months!

So, yeah, we made it.  And it was very very cool.  The architecture was truly amazing.  The living roof was visually spectacular and just the pinnacle of the green things the building stands for.  It had an aquarium, a planetarium, a historical museum, and live animals.  My only complaint was that I wanted more.  

Amy says she read that they use it as a night club after hours, which must just be the neatest thing.  Well, unless you're in one of the tanks, I guess, with strobe lights and a disco ball assaulting your senses every Saturday night.  Maybe we can even see the unfortunate epileptic affects live on the 24-hour Penguin Cams.

Also, as a side comment -- found it very sad (or not) that my new camera died midway through our day and I had to resort to my iPhone for the rest of the shots...and you can't even tell the difference.  Is this a good thing?
