California // Children's Discovery Museum, Magical Bridge & Campbell Farmer's Market

Our first weekend in Cupertino, California was really dedicated to spending time with my brother-in-law and his family. Now with two kids each, it, it wasn't just about KW and his brother getting together and having a beer, but making sure the cousins have plenty of play time together whenever possible. This being summer, we took advantage of the great Californian weather and spent quite a bit of time outdoors.

When we were putting our itinerary together, my brother-in-law recommended Magical Bridge for the kids and it truly is pretty amazing for kids between the ages of 3-10 years old. The boys and their cousin had plenty of fun scaling the slides. Not just a place for kids, I even chatted with this lady who was celebrating her cousin's 40th birthday at the picnic area. #youngatheart

Another place we had to visit was Campbell Farmers Market. True, Ferry Building is more famous and talked about, but for a decidedly local and non-touristy experience, Campbell Farmers Market was right up our alley. You can find anything from the sweetest seasonal fruits and vegetables to homemade gluten-free baked treats. I wish I had more stomach space for the amazing-looking pizza and falafels.

When it got too hot, we hid indoors and one awesome place for the kids is the Children's Discovery Museum of San Jose. Interesting fact: The museum is located on Woz Way in and named after Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple Compute; "Woz" was the single largest private donor of the museum. We spent a couple of hours there and barely made a dent, as the boys were besotted with the water play area.

Oh yes, we ate really well too! Many yummy meals were shared. From awesome Korean food to yummy funky sushi rolls, a highlight is definitely shanghainese food that I will share about in a while.
