Today we spent the day in Redding, California. Tristan turns 8 tomorrow, and we wanted to take him to the WaterWorks Park just down the street. It was an amazing place with lots of water slides, pools, a slide called the Cyclone (which was amazingly fast — the kids and Michelle bowed out of that one), and lots of other fun activities.
Later in the day we went to Turtle Bay Exploration Park. There we saw a butterfly exhibit, fed some lorikeets, and saw a chocolate exhibit and various other cool displays. While there we also got to visit the Sundial Bridge. This is an amazing piece of construction and well worth the visit if you are ever in the area.
It was a very fun yet tiring day. Rachel was asleep by 7:15 pm, which was much better than 10 pm last night.
Tomorrow we move on to Discovery Bay in California to visit relatives.
