Richmond Branch Library

The inside of the library is in brand new condition. After the City spent millions of dollars for the restoration. They have brand new furniture, computers, books, DVDs and free Wi Fi. Of course, one of the reason they restored the library is that there is a law they must be disabled people friendly. That’s mean they have to have handicap ramps and elevator. The only thing make me feel good is that it reflects the kindness and prosperity of San Franciscans. My daughters love the elevator ride. They like riding it every time when we visit it.

French Snails

They love exploring the nature. I don’t mind that they pet some creatures which they found, as long as it’s not harmful. The other day, they were petting the garden snails. It looked cute at the beginning, but after a while, I found that it’s not easy to clean their hands because of the snail’s mucus got on their skin. I had to use cleanser to scrub it off. I said it to myself, “No more next time!” More pictures

Photogenic

A lot of people will think she is cute. But I think that she is becoming a little bit of photogenic. Every time when I hold up the camera, she wants to be in the picture. And the camera likes her. Will she become a model or beyond? I have no idea now. Ha, ha.....

California Academy of Sciences

We went for a field trip with the other kids from the Home Base Education Program yesterday. (More pictures) Mrs G managed to get the free admission for us, so we did not spend a dime for it, it’s just great! The first thing we saw inside the entrance was a food court with a giant skylight and there were two sphere structures on each sides, one on the left was the Planetarium and on the right was the Rain forest. And outside around them were a lot of science exhibits, things like whale bones, inserts, reef fishes and reptiles pools. My kids love the Aquarium and the penguin feeding time. But I love the Planetarium, that’s because the film is a truly virtual adventure. It made me feel like flying in the sky and in the space. https://www.calacademy.org/index.php

Library

This is our Richmond District Branch Library. They have restored the whole building from in and out. It took two and a half years to finish it and cost tax payers thirteen million dollars. In such a bad economy, I feel terrible about it. But my daughters seem like it there. That what it's count. (Five year ago) (The present)
