On my birthday, I went with some friends from my marine biology class to the California Academy of Sciences! omgomgomg

I had to bring a camera I don't normally use so some of the pics aren't that great(and a bit out of order) but I hope you still enjoy them :)

Finally, a huge thanks goes to Matt Wandell for the "behind the scenes" tour! It was really fun and everyone loved it! :D
