It seems as though my trip to San Jose and BlogHer14 was a dream, but last week at this time -- time difference notwithstanding -- I was eating lunch at The Tech Museum of Innovation in downtown San Jose. I'd seen information about it during my research for the trip and decided it would be the perfect way to spend time while I was visiting the center of the Silicon Valley.
I enjoyed the museum a lot, especially the biotech exhibit, which gave me the opportunity to actually do a hands-on lab project.
I love museum gift shops and this one didn't disappoint. Besides many interesting science and technology gifts there were pink science-themed stuffed animals. It was tough leaving them there, but I took lots of pictures. They were adorable and perfect for Pink Saturday sharing.
Lost my heart to this pink cutie and her sweet blue friend.
These space princesses caught my eye and my heart!
But I'm especially enamored with monkeys and I was very tempted to bring this pink space explorer home with me. I fought the temptation while I was in San Jose, but there's always on-line shopping.
I enjoyed my tourist day in San Jose a lot. Besides visiting the museum, I did a little shopping, saw a movie and indulged in great ice cream at Cream. I chose butter pecan, but it wasn't an easy choice.
Today is a quiet day. I'm catching up on things in the house and planning an outing to Michael's in a little while. I've been out to the fruit market and picked up wonderful Long Island blueberries and New Jersey peaches. Loving the fresh local summer fruit.
I hope everyone else is enjoying this beautiful Sunday -- sunny and not too humid in New York -- too. As always thanks for visiting and take good care.
