Hands-on Science

It doesn’t get more hands-on than experiencing an earthquake and getting all fired up to learn more. We went to the science center last night to view the seismograph from yesterday’s quakes.

There are several permanent exhibits about earthquakes there. One of them even shakes the ground just like a real earthquake. After exploring a bit and then going to the Omni Theater, we headed home and made pizzas. Definitely more fun to eat your food if you pretend it’s a head.

Or an alien with three eyes.

John and I did not eat with the kids. My teen-aged nephew was with us so he babysat while we went out for Mexican food and margaritas. And then to bed early. Not to be shaken awake until morning when the children pounced.
