As I mentioned before, it has been raining A LOT! Our neighbor told us that this is the most rain the bay area has seen since 2005. With so much rain our plans of exploring are very limited. This particular Saturday, we decided to take Cache to the Lawrence Hall museum of Science, on the campus of UC Berkley. We have a pass, the kids like it, it's indoors, and Cache had never been there it worked out great.
The kids enjoy playing in the huge peg boards (or whatever they are called), you know those things made of millions of nails that mold your face, hand, feet, or whatever you choose to form. They think it is so funny to press their bodies into them. Eden keeps her mouth open...eww.
My favorite part are the Kapla blocks, they can be stacked so high. It's hard to tell, but the tower that Asher is standing next to is my creation and it was probably a head taller than me. Eden built one a a few feet taller than her and had to use a stool to reach the top. At the end we gave Ainsley the honor of tipping my tower over-It freaked her our and she started crying.
On Saturday's in the basement they have experiment labs and the kids learned to make an automaton. We had to figure out the "gears" and posts to make our snake on top dance. Ours ended up spinning and moving up and down. So much learning and so much fun!
Here are some funny pictures:
At least they are funny to me because when Eden was born I was so into her looking perfect all of the time. I look at Ainsley in these and think I would have never left the house with Eden wearing this outfit. Eden sometimes dresses Ainsley and most of the time she does a pretty good job, but this time her choice just didn't jive. Polka dots, argyle, twinkle toes, and flowers. We called her Punky Brewster all day. And guess what? she wore it the whole day, in public, and I let her.
