Fall Days

Well, it's fall here -- the days are cooler, breezy and much too short! Just as boredom threatened, the new museum membership card arrived in the mail. Fourteen months of free access to two of our favorite museums, and a third we keep saying we'll visit someday, maybe even this year.

We spent last Friday at Explora (our local kids' science museum) and the Natural History Museum. No pix from the history museum, but I do have some from Explora.

First, Andy built a tower with his favorite Kapla blocks

They teamed up to experiment with electricity
Andy spent a lot of time working on this particular puzzle

Dan lining up the nails to balance them from the standing nail

Andy solved this one pretty easily.

Most impressive to me, tho, was when Andy sat down at the puzzle with these 6 blocks and ...

got them all to fit into the box! I've tried this one for years and never figured it out. Andy did it in under 10 minutes, after several tries.
