Discovery

Last week KK and her fellow classmates went on a field trip to the Discovery Museum in San Jose.

Kayla and I (and self-portrait puma) on the way down.  P.S.  School bus drivers are SAINTS.  Really.  Not quite sure how they do that all day.  I was ready to kick out the emergency exit by the time we hit Mountain View.


KK and her bff.  Such a sweet little redhead.  They are two peas in a pod.



And here she is in front of one of our CCT rigs.  She was thrilled.  Can't you tell?


Water exhibit.  Kind of boring, to be honest.  And they had about 8 smocks for 108 kids so they were SOAKED.  Epic logistical fail, Discovery Museum.  Epic.


We then made our way over to the "Secrets of Circles" exhibit where KK spent an hour in the Vietnamese round boat playing Swiss Family Robinson with anyone that would make eye contact.  Wearing the special Vietnamese scarf  for added effect and because "the magic scarf may get them off the island sooner."  She was in circle heaven.


BUBBLES!  The kids loved this exhibit.  And left with soapy hands, faces, hair, upper torsos.  Considering most were still wet from the water exhibit, it was a sudsy mess.  But such fun!



During our time in the museum, I couldn't help but notice the atrocious face painting.  Most of the children resembled Piggy in Lord of the Flies.  My inside voice was thinking that the Museum should fire the face painting staff and hire someone more qualified.  Then, as we approached our final exhibit, I realized the kids painted their OWN faces.  Oops.  I took it all back.
