We had a blast attending our first Cal Day at my beloved alma mater, UC Berkeley. One of the best things about living in the Bay Area is introducing Franco to where mommy went to school. Franco got his very own passport to science and proceeded to collect stamps throughout the Valley Life Sciences Building, where we viewed fossils, insects and spiders, touched marine animals, and correctly identified a manzanita tree.
Throughout the day, I found myself cracking up with the gravestone of Australopithecus afarensis (RIP Lucy), a career spin wheel (I’m a movie extra!), and a Ken doll in the entomology classroom, gravely wounded by an insect wound with the question, ‘When did Ken die?’
We made our way to the Oski Land kids zone where Franco played games and we were entertained by the band and cheerleaders.
