February is here!  The month of love, Black History Month, Chinese New Year, and so much more!  Last year February was a pretty tough month for us (read bout it here).  So we are so looking forward to a total change this year and taking part in all the great events happening this month.  Read on for a listing of all the great kid0friendly events happening in February 2017 in San Francisco.

Best Rainy Day Activities With Kids in San Francisco

We haven’t seen rain in three years, so my bag of tricks for what to do on a rainy day is a little low.  With all the recent rain, I have totally maxed out my ideas!!  Browsing around the web, I found a dearth of inspiration for what to do with kids on a rainy day in San Francisco, so I thought I would share my ideas of the best rainy day activities with kids in San Francisco in hopes that some of you may share yours with me and give me some inspiration of new ideas to try.

San Francisco Weekend Fun: January Events

Updated 1.4.2016 with additional events.

After all the activity of the holidays, January is a nice relief.  January always feels like a clean slate to try new activities and make a list of “must dos” for the new year.   Big D has been asking to go see the Asian Art Museum (he has seen all the banners around town), so that is definitely on our list…the free bike riding clinic at the Presidio Y might also be in our future.   For these and other great events in San Francisco in January, read on below:

There are so many fun activities to do with kids in October.  We have been hitting up quite a few of the Halloween and fall events, so I thought I would share a round up of what I found out there for this weekend.  If you are looking for something to do, check out one of these:

SF Weekend Fun: Japanese Tea Garden

typic

We have walked by it a thousand times on our way to the California Academy of Sciences, but had not been in, until last week.  I am not sure what took us so long!  The San Francisco Japanese Tea Garden is a great place for kids to explore.    There are waterfalls, ponds, fish to look at, bridges to climb, and amazing statues and houses to marvel at.  When you get tired of wandering the beautifully maintained paths, pop into the tea house for ice cream treats (or something healthier if you prefer).

San Francisco Weekend Fun: SFMOMA

The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art recently reopened after being closed for three years.  The newly expanded space is now the largest museum of modern art in the US!!  The new building gives ample wall space for some of the HUGE new additions that are on 100 year loan from the collection of Don and Doris Fisher.  I went to an event there this week and wanted to share some pics.  The thing I noticed the most, was that the art has its own space.  There are a ton of great LARGE works of art and they don’t feel crowded.  Many walls only have one or two pictures.  There is a lot of empty wall space, which invites meandering, to check out all the great new art.

Weekend Fun: San Francisco Showcase

I was so inspired by the San Francisco Decorator Showcase this morning that I wanted to share a few pics.  It’s the last weekend to see it before it closes, so if you haven’t already, go check it out.  I loved how the designers were able to embrace the traditional Italian architecture with more modern interior design, and of course the amazing views of the bay help.  What’s on your long weekend to do list?
