Jelly Belly Factory

On our way to San Francisco, we stopped by the Jelly Belly Factory in Fairfield. If you ever get a chance, I recommend checking this place out, even if you don't really care for Jelly Bellys (like me). This factory has a ginormous store, a cafe complete with Jelly Belly shaped hotdogs and hamburgers, a free 40-minute tour, and endless lots and lots of samples.

Because all the schools in the area planned their field trip on the same week, the wait for the tour was almost 2 hours long. What? Who has time for that? Well...we did. What else did we have to do? Apparently, nothing but stand and wait around.

While Jimmy and I took turns waiting, our little guy enjoyed his lunch - Jelly Belly shaped hotdog, smiley french fries, and a drink in his very own souvenir cup.

He also suckered us into a giving him a quarter or two.
The tour itself was very interesting and informative. It was my second time (or maybe my third...Jimmy brought me here while we were in college). 

Photos/videos were not allowed on the tour. Here's a picture of me and T while waiting...and waiting. 

Once we got into San Francisco, we had one goal. Visit the Exploratorium. Located in Pier 15 on San Francisco's Embarcadero, the Exploratorium offered a wide array of hands-on learning experiences, including science experiments, unusual instruments, a tactile dome, and an outdoor gallery. As you've noticed, we kinda really love museums.
*The admission is free for teachers. Be sure to visit the website and request a ticket beforehand*

We will definitely be going back.
